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
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. .
