Gold process solution

Gold Cyanide leaching Plant / CIL Plant for Gold

Browse:time  Update:2019-03-23

Gold Processing Plant, Carbon In Leach (CIL) Plant

Hengcheng company offers turnkey solutions for gold leaching plant/CIL plant. We are one of the leading project suppliers for gold leaching plant/CIL plant, and we work closely with our customers to fulfill their specific needs for a customized packaged solution.

 

Introduction:

Gold CIL (Carbon in Leach) Process is an efficient design of extracting and recovering gold from its ore. By cyaniding and carbon leaching the gold ore slurry simultaneously, CIL process lower the gold mining operation cost, and increase gold recovery rate to a ratio of 98%. It has become the first choice of modern gold mining and beneficiation plant design.

Application:

CIL mainly applies for the process of above 1g/t grade gold ore and gold ore with large bearing ore volume: silver, platinum, copper, etc. As CIL sees a better performance in extracting these minerals at the same time.

Brief Introduction about Gold CIL Plant Working: 
After crushing and the ball mill grinding, slurry is pumped to the CIL leach tanks where lime adjusts the pH, if necessary, and it is agitated for the desired period of time. Air is added to increase the reaction rate and shorten the leach time. Cyanide is added, typically in the first tank. Each carbon leach tank has a interstage screen in it for carbon retention. Slurry can gravity flow between tanks or be pumped. Typically there are 6 to 9 tanks in series. 

From the first tank, the loaded carbon is pumped using a recessed impeller pump (to not degrade the carbon), or another suitable type of pump, to a loaded carbon screen, where the slurry passes through the screen and retains the carbon.

From there the loaded carbon may be acid washed to remove material, such that might interfere (take longer) for the carbon stripping process. After the acid wash, the acid is neutralized with NaOH.

Then the carbon is sent to the carbon stripping process. This can be either at atmospheric pressure of a higher pressure. The higher pressure Zadra method takes less time for stripping and is popular, for that reason. The stripping solution is typically a heated solution of cyanide and sodium hydroxide. Stripping can take a couple of hours. Then, the pregnant concentrated solution is pumped to the electrowinning cells, where the precious metals plate onto the cathodes, which are steel or stainless steel wool.

Gold leaching plant / CIL plant mainly consists of following steps:

1 The ore is first reduced in size (typically 90% passing 200mesh ) to ensure that all non-refractory gold is readily accessible for cyanide leaching, There are several variations of comminution circuits used in the gold leaching industry, such as: Multi-stage crushing, then ball milling circuits, typical of ball mill and hyrocyclones.

 

2 Thickening (add lime flocculant)

After comminution, the ore pulp is into dilute and thickening stage. High efficient thickener is performed to increase the pulp density to about 50%.

3 Leaching

Leaching reagents in the form of cyanide and oxidant such as air or oxygen are added after thickening. Leaching take place in a series of agitated leaching tanks/slots.

4 Carbon adsorption

Before leaching, the pulp is passed through a linear vibrating screen to ensure removal of trash materials. This is done to minimize screen blocking in the adsorption section. After ore pulp pre-screening, the pulp flows through a cascade of well mixed adsorption tanks, typically 6-8 in number. The pulp residence time is about one hour in each tank. The tanks are normally mechanically agitated and each will contain a batch of activate carbon for adsorption (generally 10-25grams of carbon per liter of pulp). The carbon size is 0.6-0.8mm. The actual gold adsorption rate could reach 95-99%.

 

5 Desorption and electrowinning

The loaded carbon is treated by desorption and electro-winning equipment, after it, could get high grade gold mud.

6 Gold melting system

The gold mud feed into the smelting equipment, to get the final pure gold bars (>99%).
