invention). Cyanide and hydroxide salts are added during both the AARL and Zadra elution procedures to enhance the elution of the gold cyanide. The extent to which cyanide is required in the elution step is determined by the degree of irreversibility of the adsorbed gold due to acid treatment prior to elution (6,7).

adsorption of gold was determined by adding sodium gold cyanide to the synthetic feed solution, producing a gold concentration of 150 ppm. This concentration is signif. icantly higher than metal concentrations normally encoun tered in most gold plant solutions; however, the results are indicative of the loading phenomena.

CYANIDE HANDLING AND STORAGE. Cyanides are poisonous compounds, whether solid or liquid or in solution. In addition, nearly all will release a poisonous gas, hydrogen cyanide, when they are exposed to, or mixed with, acid fumes, liquid acids, or solid acid compounds. Even very weak acids and water will release hydrogen cyanide.
