Bio-oxidation of refractory gold ores containing stibnite ...

Bioleaching is considered more environmentally-friendly than chemical processes to recovery gold, particularly from low-grade ores and residues bearing such sulphides. Thus, the current work has investigated the bio-oxidation of both a gold-bearing sulphide concentrate and a flotation tailing by Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans , at 32 °C, focusing on the behaviour of both arsenic and antimony.

Economic evaluation of biooxidation of gold ores ...

01/01/2016  Biooxidation of gold ores or concentrates could be a very attractive alternative to pressure oxidation (POX) or roasting to liberate the gold grains from various sulfides. Crushed heap bioleaching was successful in US and many operations using tank bioleaching of gold concentrate are currently running around the world. Many parameters need to be considered during the project of sulfidic refractory gold

The BIOX® Process for Biooxidation of Gold-Bearing Ores

GENCOR S.A. Ltd. has pioneered the commercialization of biooxidation of refractory gold ores. Development of the BIOX ® process started in the late 197os at GENCOR Process Research, in Johannesburg, South Africa. The early work was championed by Eric Livesey-Goldblatt, the manager of GENCOR Process Research who directed pioneering and innovative research into bacterial oxidation of refractory gold ores

CHARACTERIZATION OF JAROSITE FORMED DURING BIOOXIDATION

Biooxidation is an attractive process for unlocking of gold from refractory ores, but could be further improved by reducing the rather high cyanide consumption during the cyanidation of the biooxidation residues. The high cyanide demand is typically ascribed to the presence of metastable intermediate sulfur species formed during the oxidation of the sulfide, but it is also conceivable that ...
