Cyanide Process Gold Cyanidation Process Gold

The gold is mixed with the sodium cyanide which leads to the following Elsener’s equation and reaction. This is done to make soluble gold; Now the gold is soluble. This method of making soluble gold is known as leaching. In the process of leaching, a dilute form of sodium cyanide is added into the ore containing the gold.
