A method for improving the yield of gold and silver from a merrill-crowe recovery process where the presence of copper effects yield.The method involves the addition of a substoichiometric amount of ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid in combination with a phosphonate and polyacrylic copolymer scale control agent.The method also reduces zinc consumption and controls scaling in the stripping circuit.

Cyanidation is the main process for gold and silver recovery from its ores. In this study, a process is proposed to recover copper and cyanide from barren solutions from the Merrill-Crowe cementation process with zinc dust. This technology is based on inducing nucleated precipitation of copper and silver in a serpentine reactor, using sodium sulfide as the precipitator, and sulfuric acid for ...
Feb 01, 2014 MerrillCrowe for PtII and PdII recovery, presence of AuI, CuI and NiII. Poor cementation results of PtII and PdII, even with the mono-ionic solutions. Zinc powder loaded nickel cyanide complexes just as readily as precious metals. Copper cementation inhibited by increasing free cyanide concentration.
We manufacture Merrill-Crowe Plants for the recovery of gold and silver from cyanide solutions. A Merrill Crowe process lets you easily precipitate gold amp silver previously dissolved by cyanide using zinc dust. Two primary Merrill-Crowe Plant sizes are manufactured, a 10 gallon per minute plant 65 tons of solution per day, and a 50 gallon per minute plant 300 tons of solution per day. The ...
Effect of impurities on Merrill-Crowe zinc precipitation process Davidson et al. 1979 stated that many of the more common constituents of gold-cyanidation CE solutions, such as sodium sulphide, cyanide complexes of copper, arsenic and antimony, significantly decrease the cementation recovery of gold when they are present in AC concentrations ...
tion after Merril-Crowe process using the electrocoagula- tion process EC. This process can be interesting for the copper cyanide removal from processed solutions after the Merrill Crowe process, also has low cost of operation and investment. 2. Copper Cyanide Chemistry . The major challenges to the processing of gold-copper

The experimental work was performed using a barren solution from the Merrill Crowe process containing an average in the range of 660 - 712 ppm of copper. EC experiments were performed using a 600 ml Pyrex beaker glass Figure 5 , equipped with two iron electrodes 10 cm 2.5 cm with an electrode separation of 5 mm.
1.1. Copper Removal after the Merrill-Crowe Process . The presence of cyanide-soluble copper affects gold and silver recovery from the cyanide solutions. In the Merrill-Crowe process, the copper is precipitated along with gold and silver, resulting in a higher consumption of zinc dust, fluxes in the smelting of the precipitate and
Cyanide and Copper Recovery from Barren Solution of the Merrill Crowe Process Parga, Jos R. Valenzuela, Jes s L. D az, J. A. Abstract. This paper is a brief overview of the role of inducing the nucleated precipitation of copper and cyanide in a flashtube serpentine reactor, using sodium sulfide as the precipitate and sulfuric acid as pH ...
During the late 18901s, zinc cementation was introduced for the ... metals and to minimize precipitation of copper which is at times present in solution. ... Merrill-Crowe zinc prec.ipitation is the most commonly used cementation process for gold recovery, and consists of four basic steps Figure 8.1 ...
Mar 21, 2016 However, in the Merrill-Crowe Process, using zinc dust precipitant, the presence of copper has no detrimental effect other than to increase the zinc consumption and lower the grade of precipitate produced. Because new, fresh surfaces are exposed by the constant addition of finely divided zinc, precipitation of the gold and silver is complete, irrespective of the copper present.
Jan 01, 2016 This is a costly and time-consuming practice and produces an acidic copper sulfate solution that must undergo further processing before disposal. Cementation of copper using scrap iron is practiced when the quantity of copper makes recovery worthwhile. The MerrillCrowe process is discussed in detail in Chapter 31. 3.2. CIP and CIL Process
The Merrill-Crowe or Cementation process is used for concentration and purification of gold and silver from cyanide solutions. Among other available options for recovery of precious metals from cyanide solutions, Electrocoagulation EC is a very promising electrochemical technique for the recovery of
MERRILL-CROWE. In certain occasions, such as when the ore silver content is higher than the gold content, the ADR circuit will be formed by a combination of filtration and Merrill-Crowe circuit. In this circuit, the gold and silver in solution can be separated from the slurry using a variety of filtration equipment such as drum, disk, linear and press filters.
Hie guys. I am having problems with the amount of copper associated with our ore. The copper content is not high enough for economic recovery but its high enough to cause problems in our CIP circuit and electrowinning. A typical elution would produce about 4kgs of gold and 5kgs of copper. The coppe
The MerrillCrowe process uses zinc cementation in which the filtered cyanide solution is passed through deaerating columns to remove the oxygen before adding zinc dust to reduce and precipitate the gold . 73 The precipitated gold is then recovered by filtration, mixed with fluxes borax, silica, or sodium carbonate to bind with impurities ...
In this regard a study is proposed to remove lead ions with hydroxyapatite and copper cyanide ions from barren solutions from the Merrill-Crowe process. This technology is based on inducing nucleated precipitation of copper and silver in a serpentine reactor, using sodium sulfide as the precipitator, and sulfuric acid for pH control.
As an alternative to carbon adsorption, cementation is used in practice of gold recovery for more than a century since introduction of Merrill-Crowe process in 1904 4. It utilizes the ability of dissolved gold to interact with less noble metals e.g., zinc, copper, iron and
