    Silver Recovery from Scrap and LowGrade Residue

    As described in the section on gold concentrates, gold and silver are precipitated from solution using zinc, in the MerrillCrowe process, based on their nobility. Being more noble, they have a preference to remain in their metallic states. Ag(I) has a reduction potential of ; Au(I) of Based on the same principle of reduction potential, gold and silver can also be easily electrowon ...

    After leaching, the solutions are treated in MerrillCrowe and SART circuits, which are specialized units designed to recover residual gold, silver, copper and cyanide. The recovered cyanide is then reused in the leaching process. Finally, the cakes are treated with acid and then smelted into bars of gold and silver bullions (doré) in a furnace.

    The steps in the MerrillCrowe process are oxygen removal, mixing in fine zinc powder, and gold precipitate recovery by filtration. The addition of zinc leads to the formation of a zinc cyanide complex and gold metal. 2 Au(CN) + Zn → 2 Au + Zn(CN)42 Sulfuric acid is used to dissolve any zinc impurities that have precipitated with the gold. The final gold solids are smelted into gold doré ...
