Pressure oxidation

Pressure Oxidation is a process for extracting gold from refractory ore. The most common refractory ores are pyrite and arsenopyrite, which are sulfide ores that trap the gold within them. Refractory ores require pre treatment before the gold can be adequately extracted.

What Is the Definition of Oxidized Metal?

Aug 13, 20190183;32;Metal oxidation takes place when an ionic chemical reaction occurs on a metal's surface while oxygen is present. Electrons move from the metal to the oxygen molecules during this process. Negative oxygen ions then generate and enter the metal, leading to the creation of an oxide surface. Oxidation is a form of metal corrosion.

Pressure Oxidation CalderaEngineering

Pressure Oxidation (POX) is a process used to extract gold, copper, zinc, molybdenum, and uranium from refractory ore bodies. The POX process utilizes elevated temperatures (roughly 230 degrees Celsius), elevated pressures (roughly 35 bar or 510 psi), and oxygen to liberate the minerals from refractory ores.

Pretreatment Process on Refractory Gold Ores with As

Gold ores are considered refractory if gold extractions from a conventional cyanidation process are less than 80% even after fine grinding. 1) Arsenic bearing refractory gold ore has stones extremely difficult to deal with. In the stones, gold is locked up in arsenic mineral matrix as the form of microscopic or submicroscopic lattice.

Rcovery of gold in pyritic ores mine engineer

Sulfide ores, and pyrites in particular, have caused and continue to cause difficulty in recovering the gold values from these ores. In most instances, visible gold can not be seen under microscopic examination of pyrite gold ores. However, if the ore is ground to 200 mesh, most times, a few specs of gold can be visibly seen under microscopic
