Fleming, C.A. and Nicol, M.J. (1984) The absorption of gold cyanide onto activated carbon. III. Factors influencing the rate of loading and the equilibrium capacity. Journal of the South African Institute of Mining and Metallurgy, 84 (4). pp. 85-93.
The results are reported of experiments on the influence of a number of variables on the rate of loading of gold cyanide onto activated carbon and the equilibrium capacity of the carbon. These variables include the concentrations of gold and free cyanide in solution, the pH value and ionic strength of the solution, the concentration of organic compounds in the solution, the temperature, the particle size of the carbon, and the mixing efficiency. The experiments were carried out under approximately steady-state conditions to simulate the conditions in a countercurrent carbon-in-pulp absorption plant. In addition, the results are reported of experiments to establish whether the absorption of gold cyanide onto activated carbon is a reversible process.
