Gold extraction refers to the processes required to extract gold from its ores. This may require a Gold occurs principally as a native metal, usually alloyed to a greater or lesser Sulfide minerals are impermeable minerals that occlude gold particles, making
Pyrite, an iron sulfide, may be worthless to gold miners, but the mineral has This pyrite is formed by bacteria that remove oxygen from sulfate in the water . These occurred in the lists of minerals compiled by the Sumerians 4,000 years ago.
Consequently, gold flotation recovery requires a focus on floating the associated base metals (predominantly lead, copper) and often pyrite minerals. While lime
