  • In the present work, sodium dicyanamide (SD) was used as a leaching reagent for gold recovery, and the effects of SD dosage and solution pH on gold leaching performance were investigated. It was found that a gold recovery of 34.8% was obtained when SD was used as the sole leaching reagent at a dosage of 15 kg/t. It was also found that in the presence of a certain amount of potassium ferrocyanide (PF) in the SD solution, the gold recovery increased from 34.8% to 57.08%. The leaching kinetics of SD with and without PF was studied using the quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation (QCM-D) technique. According to the QCM-D results, the gold leaching rate increased from 4.03 ng/cm²∙min-1 to 39.99 ng/cm²∙min-1 when the SD concentration increased from 0 to 0.17 mol/L, and from 39.99 ng/cm²∙min-1 to 272.62 ng/cm²∙min-1 when 0.1 mol/L of PF was used in combination with SD. The pregnant solution in the leaching tests was characterized by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and ESI-MS. The results indicated that Au and (N(CN)2)ˉ in the SD solution formed a series of metal complex ion, [AuNax(N(CN)2)(x+2)]ˉ (x = 1, 2, 3, or 4).

Abstract: In the present work, sodium dicyanamide (SD) was used as a leaching reagent for gold recovery, and the effects of SD dosage and solution pH on gold leaching performance were investigated. It was found that a gold recovery of 34.8% was obtained when SD was used as the sole leaching reagent at a dosage of 15 kg/t. It was also found that in the presence of a certain amount of potassium ferrocyanide (PF) in the SD solution, the gold recovery increased from 34.8% to 57.08%. The leaching kinetics of SD with and without PF was studied using the quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation (QCM-D) technique. According to the QCM-D results, the gold leaching rate increased from 4.03 ng/cm²∙min-1 to 39.99 ng/cm²∙min-1 when the SD concentration increased from 0 to 0.17 mol/L, and from 39.99 ng/cm²∙min-1 to 272.62 ng/cm²∙min-1 when 0.1 mol/L of PF was used in combination with SD. The pregnant solution in the leaching tests was characterized by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and ESI-MS. The results indicated that Au and (N(CN)2)ˉ in the SD solution formed a series of metal complex ion, [AuNax(N(CN)2)(x+2)]ˉ (x = 1, 2, 3, or 4).
