Using the Rosin-Rammler method to correlate recovery with particle size distribution and content in a sulfidic gold ore
As gold ores become more challenging to treat, it is increasingly important that the impact of refractory behaviors on recovery is understood. For example, gold extraction and recovery faces many challenges when associated with, or occluded by, sulfides, as the gangue material can produce cyanicidic complexes or even passivating films on the gold surface. By using a methodology developed by Claude Bazin in 1994 in his research, the correlation of mass:gold, mass:sulfur and sulfur:gold by particle size distribution on recovery was developed for a low-sulfide gold ore from the Waihi Favona mine. ...
