GOLD EATING WATER SPARKLING LlOUID CHARGED WITH CYANIDE OF POTASSIUM. Million In the Yellow Metal Become y Percolation A Simple but ' Interest ioB Process, With Remits Which An Kothlns; jtn Than afarreloaa. It is not generally known, even in California, that millions of dollars in glittering gold are annually taken from rndo heaps of base looking quarts by the gentle flowing of crystal water over nuge piles of broken rocks that contain the precioos metal, bnt sueh is the fact. "The process of robbing the earth of its gold has now been reduced to such a fine point," said Professor Price, "that the gentle flowing of water over the ore gleans it of its golden treasures, and this works well in cases where the old chloride and other methods are not so useful. " But the water of which Professor Price spoke is not so pure as it looks. though the eye could never distinguish it from that which is dipped by the old oaken bucket from a well in the deep tangled wildwood. The water used by ainers in bringing gold from piles of mineral bearing quartz is charged with a simple chemical which has the potency to dissolve eold and hold it in solution. In truth, the sparkling liquid which flows over hundreds qf tons of quarts, trickles through the mines and seeks its level, laden with gold, is charged with a deadly poison, cyanide of potassium, a drug which ferrets out the minutest particles of the yellow metal, dissolves them and brings tho precious burden to the vats for conversion into refined gold again. The cyanide process is as noiseless and unerring as the laws of gravitation, do ing its work as quietly as "the majestic dance of the hours," unhindered by darkness or weather, by disasters of field or flood. The btate mining bureau of California was one of the first in the United States to investigate the merits of the cyanide process, and tince the earliest investiga tions tho method has found extensive application. It is so interesting that its results are nothing less than marvelous. This method of extracting both gold and silver from ores is based on the fact that even a very weak solution of cyanide of potassium dissolves gold .and silver, forming respectively "auro - potassic cyanide" and "argento-potassio cyan ide," in tho language of the chemists. This interesting process consists of treating the ores with a weak solution of potassium cyanide, usually by allow ing the solution to percolate through the ore, or by agitating a mixture of the ore and solution. V hen this part of the operation is completed, the solution is separated from the solid material, and tho gold and silver are precipitated in a metallic form. The process is modern in its application, though it has long been known that cvanide of potassium would "eat gold. " During the last five years, however, the process has been introduced into almost every coldfield in Calfornia and elsewhere, and more than f 20,000,000 have been recovered by tho genjtle flowing of waters charged with the magical chemical over heaps of ore. Aside from the thoroughness of the permeating water method, its economy is a marked feature in mining. It is in great favor with the gold mining com panies of New Zealand and at Johannes burg, Africa, as well as in California. One of the most advantageous features of the cyanide method is that it can be applied to many gold and silver ores gen erally called "rebellious" or "refrac tory. " The rebellious ore is placed in a vat fcr percolation, and the solution is run preferably from the bottom by a pipe, rising slowly through the ore. Tho solution containing gold is carried through precipitating appliances into the final reservoir, where, robbed of its wealth of metal, it may be repumped into ore vats and again used for search ing out the coveted metal. One of the curious things about the solution is that a total percentage not stronger than an eighth of 1 per cent win carry away the gold almost as well as fluid of greater strength. Precipitation is effected by the use of fine pieces of zinc, so arranged that when the rich waters flow over them the fine gold clusters in rich deposits over the zinc, for which it has an affinitv. The gold which thus deserts the waters of cyanide deposits itself in the form of fine dust on the plates of zinc. The per centage of gold extracted by this process is very large. A large parcel of fine Bulphurets from the Utica mines yielded an average of 93.18 per cent of the gold value under tlie cyamdo treatment, and similar results have been experienced elsewhere in the state. Tho cyanide plants are being extended, and the noiseless process is everywhere becoming popular. san rrancisco Chronicle. . ' BQCkkn't Amies SaWe.
