Abstract

In a resin-in-pulp process for the recovery of gold cyanide from a very dilute solution it is desirable that the resin should exhibit the ability to load gold at the natural pH of the leach liquor and be stripped by an aqueous alkali. The present work describes the results of gold cyanide adsorption by new ion-exchange hollow fibers prepared by the amination of sulfochlorinated polyethylene. The fibers, chopped into suitably sized pieces, showed very fast adsorption and desorption of gold from mixed cyanide solutions.
