Thiocyanate hydrometallurgy for the recovery of gold ...

Feb 01, 2012 · The effect of thiocyanate concentration on the rate of gold leaching was examined in the thiocyanate concentration range of 0.05–0.2 M.The results are presented in Fig. 2.It is understood from Fig. 2 that the initial rate of gold leaching is quite slow and most interestingly, almost insensitive to thiocyanate concentration (0.05–0.2 M). The rate decreases with an increase in the leaching time.

Thiourea–thiocyanate leaching system for gold - ScienceDirect

Research Highlights Initial gold leaching rate of the order of 10 − 9 mol cm − 2 s − 1 was obtained in the mixed thiourea–thiocyanate solution and higher than either lixiviant alone. The synergistic effect was attributed to the formation of mixed ligand complex Au(Tu) 2 SCN. Open circuit potentials show that thiocyanate concentration has a great effect on the leaching process.
