The Chemistry of Gold Extraction, 2nd edition
The Chemistry of Gold Extraction provides a broad base of knowledge to all those working in the gold extraction and gold processing industries. The book bridges the gap between research and industry by emphasizing the practical applications of chemical principles and techniques.
The technical reference includes in-depth discussions of historical developments; ore deposits and process mineralogy; process selection; principles of gold hydrometallurgy; oxidative pretreatment; leaching; solution purification and concentration; recovery; surface chemical methods; refining; effluent treatment; and industrial applications.
This book is a valuable asset for all professionals involved in the precious metals industries. It will be of particular interest and use to engineers and scientists, including extractive metallurgists, mineral/metallurgical engineers, electrochemists, chemical engineers, mineral technologists, mining engineers, and material scientists. In addition, plant operators and managers, academics, educators, and students working on gold extraction in either production, research, or consulting capacities will value the book's comprehensive information.
