The ore brought from underground is blended, crushed and fed into the plant in order to start the process of extracting the gold.
The gravity gold is recovered in a centrifuge-like machine – while the sulphide mineral pyrite undergoes a complex gold extraction process.
The oxidised and washed sulphide mineral pyrite ore now undergoes a chemical process to extract the gold.
Large volumes of water are produced from underground as mining progresses. This water contains dissolved metals that interfere with the BIOX® process.
To be able treat mine water effectively there needs to be a combination of chemical and mechanical filtration.More Processing Info
