Recovery of Gold from its Ores.--The methods of recovery of gold from its ores may be classed as follows: 1. Extraction by simply washing. 2. Extraction in the dry way. 3. Extraction in the wet way. 4. Extraction by electrolysis. 5. Extraction by wet and dry methods. Simple Washing.--Extraction by simply washing is effected by dressing gold-bearing sands, gravels, or ores. Dry Method.--Extraction in the dry way consists of converting the gold into gold-lead, or gold-lead-silver alloy and cupelling it. This method is used in extracting gold, when present in small but paying quantities in other ores, such as iron-lead and gold-bearing furnace products from other metallurgical reductions. Wet Methods.--Under this heading there are three distinct processes: (1) Amalgamation process. (2) Chlorination process. (3) Cyanide process. Amalgamation Process.--The gold ore is treated with mercury and an amalgam of gold and mercury is formed. The amalgam usually contains silver, but is free from contamination of base metals. The mercury is boiled off, leaving a gold-silver alloy. A special process is necessary to free the gold from silver.
