Elution and Carbon Reactivation

During the CIL process gold is leached from the ore using an alkaline cyanide solution The resulting gold cyanide complex ions are then concentrated and separated from the slurry by adsorbing onto activated carbon Elution is the next step in the process whereby the adsorption of the gold cyanide complex onto carbon is reversed

Metallurgical ContentLearn CyanidationDevelopments in the Carbon In Pulp ProcessDesign Criteria Commercial Operations Cyanide is a lixiviant or reagent that is used to leach often in tanks gold from a solid matrix and form a gold cyanide complex The gold cyanide complex is then extracted from the pulp or slurry by adsorption onto activated carbon CIL stands for carbon in leach This is a

AARL Carbon Stripping System Operation Elution

The Anglo American Research Laboratories AARL carbon stripping system used in this EXAMPLE has two definite advantages when compared with its most common counterpart the Zadra system It is much less expensive to operate and it produces a cleaner stripped carbon It is however very reliant upon the availability of an abundant supply of good quality water and its water usage is far greater
