The Adsorption Of Dissolved Gold On Activated Charcoal In A NIMCIX Contactor
Organization: The Southern African Institute of Mining and Metallurgy
Jan 1, 1997
An assessment is made of the possible scope for the use of activated charcoal as the solid adsorbent in an upflow fluidized-bed contactor, and a pilot-plant programme for the recovery of low concentrations of dissolved gold in this contactor is described. It was found possible to produce an effluent that contains less than 0,01 p.p.m. of dissolved gold.
