This work describes preliminary laboratory testwork to study the relative leaching response to cyanidation and thiourea leaching of an oxidised low grade gold ore. The potential of an alternative lixiviant like thiourea to commercial processing of mine dumps is discussed by specific reference to selected case histories. It would appear that on the basis of the available published information, there could well be a case advanced for the acid thiourea leaching of sulphide concentrate tailings being subjected
