Aug 01, 2006· The cyanide leaching order of Pt > Pd > Rh appears to be related to the metal bonding strength. The higher temperature stability ofPt(CN) 4 2− relative to that of Pd(CN) 4 2− can be explained from the higher thermodynamic and kinetic stability of the heavier platinum group complex.

RI -9507- REPORT OF INVESTIGATIONS/1994

CYANIDE LEACHING PROCESS The cyanide leaching process for spent automobile ex­ haust catalysts has been described in previous publications (1-3). Early results showed that hydrogen reduction of the catalyst followed by leaching with 5 pct sodium cyanide (NaCN) at 800 C resulted in good PGM recovery from virgin catalysts.

Cyanide Leaching Chemistry & Gold Cyanidation

The reactions that take place during the dissolution of gold in cyanide solutions under normal conditions have been fairly definitely established. Most agree that the overall cyanide equation for leaching and cyanidation of gold is as follows: 4 Au + 8 NaCN + O2 + 2 H20 = 4 NaAu(CN)2 + 4 NaOH

was obtained for Rh with the lower Rh leaching results being attributed to alloys: Pt-Rh-Fe-Ni, Rh-As-Fe-Ni. No cyanide leaching was done on these materials but in subsequent work8, also on UG-2 materials, cyanide leaching of reductively roasted ore (excess cyanide, 150°C) gave relatively poor recoveries: Pt (16–38 per cent), Pd (26–42 per

the cyanide leach becomes a necessity. However the extent of BM extraction required depends on the mineralogical profile; if high cyanide soluble BM minerals are present, the extraction must be high, if they are slow leaching in cyanide then a lower degree is required. But this will be also gauged against how much of the PGMs they occlude.

CYANIDE LEACHING RECOVERY. Prior to cyanide leaching, the pyrite concentrate was reground to 10 µm. Following a 12 hour preconditioning, leaching was carried out at 35% solids for 72 hours with the cyanide controlled at a concentration of 1.5 g/L in solution. The addition of lead nitrate improved both leaching kinetics and gold recovery.
