  • Ultra fine milling for the recovery of refractory gold ...

    Abstract Refractory gold ores may be defined as those which yield low recoveries of gold when treated by the conventional grinding and cyanidation process. This refractory behaviour can vary from mild to severe with gold recoveries of 85% down to less than 30% [1]. A common cause of refractoriness is encapsulation of fine gold within the matrix of sulphide minerals, particularly
