How gold is extracted by Cyanidation Process -

2020-6-17  Cyanidation is a method used in the extraction of gold from its ore. This extraction is done by converting the gold to a water-soluble form. The cyanidation process of gold extraction or the use of cyanide is the most common leaching process, used in the extraction of gold from its ores. Some countries do not approve of this method of gold extraction because of the poisonous nature of the cyanide.

Extraction of gold using cyanide - NZQA

2015-8-24  Extraction of gold using cyanide Gold is found in very low concentrations in the ore from which it is mined. To collect the gold from the ore it needs to be separated from the other minerals in the ore. To do this the gold needs to be made into a soluble form so that it can be separated from the other minerals as gold is insoluble. To make gold soluble sodium cyanide (NaCN) is
