  • Optimizing and evaluating the operational factors

    The grade of gold ore is 3 ppm. Also, cyanide leaching is used to process gold in the Aghdareh mine . The main problem in extraction is achieving an acceptable separation of Au from its ore. Thus, the effects of the main controllable parameters affecting gold recovery are evaluated, discussed and optimized.
