Leaching and recovery of gold from ore in cyanide-free ...

Nov 01, 2020· 1. Introduction. Currently, cyanide is the predominant lixiviant used to extract gold due to its strong complexation with gold and the technical simplicity of the leaching process (Avraamides, 1982, Habashi, 1987, Marsden and House, 2006).However, the use of cyanide can bring challenges in terms of environmental, health and safety aspects (Aylmore, 2005, Laitos, 2012).
