  • A method of extracting precious metals from the pyrite ogarkov

    The invention relates to hydrometallurgy rare and non-ferrous metals and can be used to extract gold and silver from Ogarkov, obtained by roasting iron pyrites (pyrite), which is a waste sulfuric acid production is E. there is an effective technology, allows you to extract precious metals from the pyrite slag, a waste sulfuric acid production.[...]

  • How can you extract iron ore from iron pyrite - Answers

    Also, it is much more economical to extract iron from other minerals. Pyrite is also geologically unstable, and will eventually turn into sulfurous minerals and actually viable iron ores, so it is ...[...]

  • How do you separate gold from pyrite without a smelter ...

    Gold and pyrite look similar, yes, but gold has a higher density than pyrite, this would make the gold heavier than a piece of pyrite the same size. Also gold is also softer than pyrite.[...]

  • CN104263961A - Method for extracting gold from pyrite ...

    The method for extracting gold from pyrite is characterized in that the pyrite is pretreated so that gold in the pyrite is exposed from the crystal lattices of the pyrite, and therefore, the gold is capable of certainly reacting with hydrochloric acid and calcium hypochlorite and further dissolved in a solution in a leaching step, next, an alkaline ...[...]

  • Rcovery of gold in pyritic ores - mine-engineer.com

    The gold occurs as tiny flakes on the crystallographic planes of the pyrite. The gold flakes are very small in size, 5-10 microns. The pyrite in which small amounts of gold occurs is of crystalline variety (primary pyrite).[...]

  • How to Separate Gold from Pyrite

    “Upon the ordinary auriferous sulphide of iron, or arsenical pyrites, the solution of potassium cyanide acts readily, not by dissolving the sulphuret, but by attacking the gold upon its exposed edges, and eating its way into the cubes by a slow advance, dissolving out the gold as it goes.[...]

  • Gold vs. Pyrite. The Difference Between Gold and Iron Pyrite

    Proper gold panning will easily separate the two, as the small specks of pyrite will wash out of the pan while the denser gold particles will be retained. The color is also a good indicator between the two. While gold obviously has a golden color, pyrite generally has a brassy and shiny coloration.[...]

  • How To Get Sulfur - Primitive Skills

    Nearly all pieces of pyrite are formed into the shape of crystals. You probably know that gold is one of the heavier metals. Panning for gold relies on this property of gold. Pyrite weighs less than gold, and small flakes of pyrite will wash away when placed under the water. To extract the sulfur from pyrite (53% Sulfur) or other rocks such as Galena (13% Sulfur), can be done using a two pot distillation method.[...]
