Testwork at AMSA''s Morro Velho gold mine in Brazil indied that a conventional cyanidation, carboninleach Merrill Crowe processing route would be suitable for blended Cerro Vanguardia ore. In practice, unanticipated clays in the rinofmine ore feed have caused some handling problems.
The MerrilCrowe Gold recovery Process. The MerrillCrowe gold recovery process removes precious metals from a cyanide solution by zinc precipitation. The pregnant solution is first clarified through filters such as horizontal leaf type clarifiers. By using a precoat system (with diatomaceous earth) an extremely clear solution can be produced.
of silver and gold from cyanide solutions. The most common is the Merrill Crowe approach which uses zinc cementation and the other is direct electrowinning of the silver and gold cyanide from solution. The Merrill Crowe approach has found extensive use as the process chemistry is simple and it can be applied directly to leach solutions

1.1. MerrillCrowe Process The zinc cementation process was introduced in 1890''s and became an important part of the cyanidation process. C. W. Merrill as mentioned in the introduction was the first to use the appliion of the zinc cementation process at the

A method for improving the yield of gold and silver from a MerrillCrowe recovery process where the presence of copper effects yield. The method involves the addition of a substoichiometric amount of ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid in combination with a phosphonate and polyacrylic copolymer scale control agent. The method also reduces zinc consumption and controls scaling in the stripping circuit.

Factors influencing the rate of gold cyanide leaching and adsorption on activated carbon, and their impact on the design of CIL and CIP circuits (PDF Available) in better gold recoveries
In this study, the two processes are reviewed and compared. Operating data from a number of MerrillCrowe precipitation and carbon adsorption plants in North America have been obtained and used in this analysis. The relative capital and operating costs for the two processes have also been considered.
The Midas Mill uses CounterCurrentDecantation leaching method and MerrillCrowe precipitation, with gravity concentration after crushing and grinding. The mill facility is an efficient well maintained modern mineral processing plant capable of processing 1,200 tons per day (tpd).
The proposed treatment plant will consist of agglomeration and cyanide heap leaching, followed by a MerrillCrowe process to recover silver and gold from pregnant solution. For an oxide tailings treatment rate of 0.5 Mt/a, an equivalent throughput rate of 1,370 t/d or 63.4 t/h is required.
The common processes for recovery of gold solution includes: (i) Carbon adsorption, MerrillCrowe process, (iii) electrowinning and (iv) ionexchange / solvent extraction. Traditionally, MerrillCrowe process was used to remove gold from a cyanide solution

The MerrillCrowe zincprecipitation process has been applied worldwide on a large number of operations for recovering gold and silver from cyanide solutions. However, in some of the large plants this precipitate is of low quality, because copper and especially lead are precipitated along
In the MerrillCrowe Zinc Precipitation, the pregnant solution tank collects the gold and silver bearing solution recovered from other circuits of the plant: thickener overflow primary and secondary filtration? and the Argentite circuits. Normally these solutions contain very little solids content (15100 ppm), however, even this small amount of solids is sufficient to inhibit efficient gold
This paper presents an economic study comparing two gold recovery processes, zinc precipitation (MerrillCrowe) and carboninpulp (CIP). Capital, operating, and gold losses costs from an actual CIP plant study are compared to costs developed from a hypothetical MerrillCrowe process flowsheet. '' Results indie an overall economic advantage to CIP over MerrillCrowe for plants processing
Slag that is produced from induction furnaces that use the Merrill–Crowe process still contains precious metals. In this study, a pyrometallurgical treatment was performed for their recovery in order to realise economic savings and reduce environmental concerns.
Efficient Merrill Crowe precipitation of gold and silver is dependent upon the proper control of certain physical and chemical properties of the solution. The most important of these properties are listed below: SUSPENDED SOLIDS, such as ore slime and precipitates of calcium carbonate, with hydrates of aluminum, magnesium and iron, present in the pregnant solution before clarifiion.
Projections of the mathematical model are in good agreement with actual plant performance. The results of the regression analysis showed that the silver concentration in the feed is the dominant operating variable in determining zinc efficiency in MerrillCrowe processing, and this is especially true for operations with lowpregnant grades.
Evaluation of the Merrill–Crowe process for the simultaneous removal of platinum, palladium and gold from cyanide leach solutions
separation (necessary for gold extraction by MerrillCrowe process) was difficult. Once the activated carbon was loaded with gold, it was sent to a smelter and burned to recover the gold. The cost of using the carbon only once, in combination with the cost of smelting, rendered this

MerrillCrowe. Veolia''s precoat filtration and vacuum deaeration technologies help gold producers achieve maximum efficiency in their gold recovery operations. By filtering the cyanide leach solution before zinc precipitation, precipitated impurities that could be carried over from the decantation steps are removed. No more than a trace of

The solubility of metallic of zinc occurring in the cementation of gold and silver has been established in a laboratorysize MerrillCrowe apparatus. The effect of several parameters, namely, cyanide, oxygen, gold, silver, and lead nitrate concentrations on the solubility of zinc were determined.
Process Production at the Merrill Crowe Plant. Changes in the Merrill Crowe Plant (MC) bring it into industry standard. The MC Plant is now operating at or above industry standards with gold recoveries running 97+% and silver recoveries of 98+%. Plant flow has been consistent and topped out at 23502400gpm.

The flowsheets in Figures 18.1–18.3 illustrate how liquid–solid separation fits into carboninleach (CIL), carboninpulp (CIP), and Merrill–Crowe circuits, respectively. In addition, heap leach, column leach, and gravity circuits also need to have liquids separated from solids, and there are many variations of the flowsheets presented.
ZINC PRECIPITATION ON GOLD RECOVERY Introduction Zinc dust cementation for gold and silver recovery is one of the best known contact reducing processes in mineral processing. It is also known as MerrillCrowe process from its founders, C.W Merrill of United States of America who started it and T.B Crowe from South Africa
The major advantage of carboninpulp recovery over Merrill Crowe recovery is the elimination of the leached ore solids and liquid separation unit operation. The separation step typically involves a series of expensive gravity separation thickeners or continuous filters arranged for countercurrent washing or filtration of the solids.
been separated (in Merrill Crowe or heap leaching, for example) this is not a factor. If they have not been separated, the cost of solid/liquid separation must be included as part of the cost to recover cyanide, and this can be significant, particularly for highclay, slimy or viscous slurries. In most cases, the washed solids will still have to be
