Low cost operating gold mine

The Pierina Gold/Silver Mine produced 152,000 ounces of silver last year at a cost of $852/ounce. This means that the once lowest cost gold mine in the world, has become one of the highest cost gold mines in the world. Major mining companies have operating gold mines with total cash cost of gold ranging from $500/ounce to $600/ounce in 2012. This mine has had

Hard Rock Mining Gold and Silver Ore and processing it

In most gold ores, the final process to extract the tiniest gold particles is the use of cyanide to dissolve the gold. Cyanide, in the presence of oxygen actually dissolves both gold and silver. It is both efficient and inexpensive, so it is widely used in precious metal ore processing. Properly done, gravity concentration followed by flotation (where necessary) and then cyanide will

Silver Mining and Refining Education

Lead ores containing silver are extracted by cupellation , a process developed by the Chaldeans as early as 2,500 B.C. Today, the cupellation process involves heating crushed ore on a porous bed of bone ash until it melts. The lead and other impurities are absorbed into the bone ash, and the molten silver is drawn off.

FLOWSHEET DEVELOPMENT FOR GOLD OREBODIES

The lowest cost gold is normally produced by open pit mining with minimal crushing, followed by dump or heap leaching with cyanide. Gold recovery is usually around 80%, but can be as low as 60%. Recoveries can be improved to 95 99% by grinding to fairly fine particle size, gravity separation, cyanidation and flotation, all of which increase capital and operating costs. In
