The use of cyanide in gold mining The Violence of

2015-1-4  In recent years the use of cyanide in gold mining has become the dominant means by which gold is extracted from a body of ore. The mercury amalgamation process had previously been used but recovered only about 60 per cent of an ore body’s gold. In contrast, leaching finely ground ore with cyanide can recover up to 97 per cent of the ore body

Sodium cyanide is highly soluble in water and under mildly oxidizing conditions dissolves the gold contained in the ore. Mining operations use a variety of chemicals for mining, ore processing, and water treatment.

Microbial destruction of cyanide wastes in gold mining

Microbial destruction of cyanide and its related compounds is one of the most important biotechnologies to emerge in the last two decades for treating process and tailings solutions at precious metals mining operations. Hundreds of plant and microbial species (bacteria, fungi and algae) can detoxify cyanide quickly to environmentally acceptable levels and into less harmful by-products.
