Mission 2015: Bioleaching

To study the feasibility of a potential bioleaching project, we used the BIOX™ project, a process for the treatment of refractory gold concentrates, as an example (D.E. Rawlings). The bio-oxidation section contributes to more than 50 percent of the total BIOX™ plant equipment cost. The BIOX™ reactors and agitator are the brunt of this cost.

The gold in refractory ores is encapsulated as fine particles (sometimes at a molecular level) in the crystal structure of the sulfide (typically pyrite with or without arsenopyrite) matrix. This makes it impossible to extract a significant amount of refractory gold by cyanidation since the cyanide solution cannot penetrate the pyrite/arsenopyrite crystals and dissolve gold particles, even ...
