First Extractive Metallurgy Operators' Conference

The purpose of this 2005 convention was once to supply a discussion board for extractive metallurgy operators to debate and current reviews in facing genuine processing concerns and their options. the 3 major goals of the convention have been to switch sensible details to help operators in enhancing their plant’s everyday functionality; to introduce new processing thoughts and stimulate debate approximately the best way to increase the quite often; and to study prior functionality at the implementation of tasks from an operator’s viewpoint with the purpose of making a choice on what was once performed good and what has to be performed higher sooner or later. All papers have been peer reviewed sooner than e-book in response to the AusIMM instructions to make sure the presentation and technical content material is maintained at a excessive common. This convention quantity will function a useful resource of data for these looking to comprehend and to extra enhance plant functionality.

0 g/t in the second leach tank. The cyanide control level was gradually reduced from 2500 - 2700 ppm NaCN to 2000 - 2200 ppm NaCN in 15 days. 7 kg/t (Figure 3). However, in spite of these modifications, gold leaching rates obtained in the laboratory were always faster that at the plant scale. While a steady state was obtained in 12 - 24 hours in the laboratory, the plant circuit could not reach it before 60 - 72 hours. The variation in the performance of the cyclones was identified as an additional factor on limiting gold extraction.

There is thus a relatively easy method of modelling the GAC with this linear time related consumption. The consumption consists of two parts. The first is the GACo or that associated with the early leach where gangue is the main consumer of acid. The second is the linear time related increase in GAC and is the rate part of the equation. The GACo appears to vary with a number of parameters. Figure 5 shows variation with grind size and Figure 6 with grade. • The leach rate for the slow regime is particle diffusion • The fast leach rate in the commercial plant will depend on the agitation intensity and the availability of acid to the surface of the ore particles.

The analyser had 11 sampling points, all of which were fully automated. The solid containing samples were filtered automatically and the solutions were analysed for Cu, Fe, Zn and Pb.

Calcium is the only component that has to be purchased outside; all the others can be made within the process itself. The actual input requirements depend on the concentrate composition and are confirmed after tests have been carried out.
