Apr 01, 1999 Gold cyanidation, using hydrogen peroxide as an oxidising agent, has been studied by performing kinetic experiments, open circuit potential measurements and voltammetry. Small amounts of hydrogen peroxide make the cyanidation rate lower than that in conventional cyanidation, but higher amounts can make the cyanidation rate double.
Dec 27, 2017 Already 75 years ago, it was found in batch experiments that hydrogen peroxide increases the gold extraction rate, but the results were not convincing enough It was also found that hydrogen peroxide attacks the cyanide, a process which was developed over the last 10 years by Degussa to destroy cyanide in gold mine effluents.

Ozonation and hydrogen peroxide oxidation processes, which are not easy to produce secondary pollution in the treatment of cyanide, are used to treat low concentration cyanide 16, 17, but the cost is higher. Recovery hydrogen cyanide can reduce cyanide content and cost, but it cannot meet the requirements of tailings backfilling 1012.

Jul 08, 2016 Hydrogen peroxide oxidizes free cyanide to cyanate as follows The efficiency of hydrogen peroxide cyanide destruction has been demonstrated repeatedly, and it is well known that solutions containing 500 mg/L WAD cyanide, or more, can be reduced to 2 mg/L within practical time scales, for example, 1 to 2 hr, by the addition of 75 to 125 mg/L H2O2.
Nov 08, 2016 I just want to ask a question about Hydrogen peroxide used on ground ore. Some miners here in our place are using Hydrogen peroxide on ground ore for the purpose of leaching any copper on the ore. After this they put Sodium cyanide to leach silver and gold. They basically mix ground ore with lime in the vat leach.

Abstract The leaching of gold using alkaline amino acidshydrogen peroxide solutions at low concentrations has been studied. The application of alkaline amino acidhydrogen peroxide system may offer an alternative and environmentally benign process for gold leaching, particularly in the context of leaching low grade gold ores in an in-situ or in heap leach processes.

Aurothiomalate was quantitatively converted to aurocyanide in about 10 min at pH 6.0 and in 40 min at pH 7.4. Aurocyanide formation occurred after myeloperoxidase had used all the hydrogen peroxide available to produce hypothiocyanite. Thus, the cyanide must have formed from the slow decomposition of hypothiocyanite.
