gold mining cyanide destruction

Microbial destruction of cyanide wastes in gold

Abstract. Microbial destruction of cyanide and its related compounds is one of the most important biotechnologies to emerge in the last two decades for treating process and tailings solutions at precious metals mining operations. Hundreds of plant and microbial species (bacteria, fungi and algae) can detoxify cyanide quickly to environmentally ...

Cyanide Use in Gold Mining - Earthworks

Cyanide's efficiency makes mining more wasteful. Because cyanide leaching is very efficient, it allows profitable mining of much lower ore grades. Mining lower grade ore requires the extraction and processing of much more ore to get the same amount of gold. Partially due to cyanide, modern mines are. much larger than before cyanide was used;
