  • The Toxic Residue - Arsenic - In Time and Place

    The Toxic Residue - Arsenic. Along with mercury, arsenic is part of the toxic residue of gold mining in California and around the world. Unlike mercury, though, arsenic was not used in the extraction of gold from ore. Rather, it occurs naturally in a number of minerals common in gold mining regions and as a result tends to become concentrated ...

  • Geochemical study of gold and arsenic mineralization of ...

    Element geochemistry of gold and arsenic and mineralogical features of their sulfides in the Carlin-type gold deposits of the Qinling region are discussed in this paper. The initial contents of ore-forming elements such as gold and arsenic are high in the ore-bearing rock series in the Qinling region.

  • arsenic gold smelting

    arsenic (arsenic (III) oxide) is principally obtained as a by-product in the smelting of copper, lead or gold ores. The arsenic then becomes gaseous and is collected on electrofilters, and serves as a basis for the manufacture of virtually all arsenicals.

  • Arsenic in Gold Processing: Mineral Processing and ...

    Jul 18, 2013 · Abstract The processing of gold bearing sulphide minerals which contain arsenopyrite and other complex arsenic sulphide minerals results in arsenic containing emissions and effluents which must be given careful consideration in relation to clean air and clean water standards. The sources of arsenic and the various process options for treating arsenical gold ores and concentrates are briefly ...
