Thiosulphate Leaching SGS South Africa

Thiosulphate Leaching. Thiosulfate leaching is a process that recovers gold from ore without the use of cyanide. SGS developed the thiosulfate leaching process because in some jurisdictions, increased regulation pressure means that cyanide cannot be used or transported. We are a global technical leader in the field of thiosulfate leaching.

Geometallurgical Approach for Implications of Ore

2019-7-22  Gold production in South Africa is projected to continue its decline in future, and prospects for discovery of new high-grade deposits are limited. Many of the mining companies have resorted to mining and processing low-grade and complex gold ores. Such ores are technically challenging to process, which results in low recovery rates, excessive reagent consumption and high operating costs

Cyanide Leaching SGS South Africa

Cyanide leaching has been the industry standard for gold processing for more than 100 years. During the cyanide leach process, a cyanide solution, or lixiviant, is percolated through ore contained in vats, columns or heaps. Gold is dissolved by the cyanide and then removed from the heap or columns.
