01/01/2016· The partially purified gold is then passed to an electrorefining operation, known as the Wohlwill process, in which the impure gold is dissolved into concentrated hydrochloric acid at the anode and is plated out as high-purity gold (usually 99.9% purity or higher) at the cathode. The byproduct base metals and silver chloride salts, produced in the prerefining step, are treated to recover and,Processing of High-Silver Gold Ores - ScienceDirect,01/01/2016· As silver elutes ahead of gold, it would be expected to have little effect on the design of the elution circuit. However, the data in Table 45.2 indicate enhanced silver recoveries at higher elution temperatures for the Anglo-American Research Laboratories (AARL) elution process. The base data from which this table is constructed were derived at the AARL in Johannesburg and are therefore,Ore Deposits of Gold and Silver: Mineral Processing and,,Gold and silver occur in a diverse range of mineral deposits including recent placers and paleoplacers of gold, epithermal gold-silver vein and disseminated deposits, stratabound (iron formation-hosted) and vein gold in Archean greenstone belts, turbidite-hosted gold, skarn gold, Cordilleran vein silver deposits, veins of silver, cobalt-nickel-arsenides, and sediment-hosted copper-silver deposits.
