MICROWAVE IRRADIATION PRETREATMENT OF A REFRACTORY

Jan 01, 1987  Microwave energy was applied in the pretreatment of a typical refractory arsenopyritic gold concentrate. More than 80% of As and S were volatilized off as As 2 O 3 and SO 2; whereas iron was oxidized mostly to hematite (Fe 2 O 3).All the gold was present in the calcine which responded favourably to the conventional alkaline cyanidation process and yielded 98% of Au and 60% of Ag

Gold extraction - Wikipedia

A "refractory" gold ore is an ore that has ultra fine gold particles disseminated throughout its gold occluded minerals. These ores are naturally resistant to recovery by standard cyanidation and carbon adsorption processes. These refractory ores require pre-treatment in order for cyanidation to be effective in recovery of the gold.
