    • A solution concentration model for CIP simulation 

      Major, Jacqueline (Cape Technikon, 2001)
      Carbon-in-pulp technology is used extensively in the mining industry to recover metal cyanides from solution. Also this technology has found increasing application in the gold mining sector, replacing the less efficient ...
    • Equilibrium shift of gold adsorption in a batch reactor 

      Burnett, Hannelene Jo-Anne (Cape Technikon, 2001)
      Over the years the carbon-in-pulp technology has been refined to become the highly efficient process that is used in our present-day system of recovering dissolved gold from cyanide leached pulps. The efficiency of a ...
    • The interaction between free cyanide and silver impregnated activated carbon in a column configuration 

      Dippenaar, Francois (Cape Technikon, 2000)
      Due to equilibrium constraints and the relatively slow kinetics of the cyanidation of gold ores, calcium or potassium cyanide is added to the leaching stage in excess to that required theoretically. This, in many situations, ...
