use of copper bimetasulphate in gold elution

Gold was selectively recovered with the use of Minix, while effective recovery of gold, platinum, and palladium over the base metals, copper, and iron, was achieved with Amberlite PWA 5. Successful elution of these metal cyanides was possible from both Minix and Amberlite PWA 5, using a 2M potassium thiocyanate solution at ambient temperature.

The copper-free loaded carbon was easily treated for gold with very high elution and electrowinning efficiencies of 96 and 98% respectively. A bullion of high fineness (in the region of 98% gold and silver) was obtained and the activity of carbon after elution was reasonably high at 8 0% of virgin carbon.

The adsorption of gold and copper onto ion-exchange

2002-10-1  The elution of gold and copper at 50 °C is illustrated in Fig. 13. The results show that gold elution kinetics were much improved, with 90% of the gold eluted in 3 h. With extended time, however, gold elution dropped to about 80% at 24 h, indicating some of the eluted gold might have precipitated from the eluate or readsorbed on the resins.
