Kinetics and reaction mechanism of gold cyanidation
Nov 01, 2005 1.. IntroductionGold cyanidation has been reported to involve the chemical reactions shown in Eq. (Bodl nder, 1896) and Eq.(Elsner, 1846), where Eq.(3) can be treated as the sum of the two partial reactions shown in Eqs., .Hydrogen peroxide produced at the interface by reduction of oxygen can react with gold (, or with cyanide ion (Eq.
