The leaching of gold is then accomplished by maintaining a temperature of 50-70⁰C.7 The 2009 Patent15 mentions that the thiosulfate concentration in the leaching container may have to be subsidized with more thiosulfate as the test goes along "to prevent the re- precipitation of gold as its sulfide." The overall thiosulfate leaching ...

Carbonaceous gold ores can have the carbon adsorb the gold onto its surface, and as a result will not be recovered from the pregnant solution. Leaching gold from sulfide ores is difficult, at best. Generally, the recovery for cyanide leaching of sulfide or refractory ores is no better than 30%, which is not a worthwhile venture.

Problem with gold recovery from sulphide ore: How may a mill get the maximum recovery of gold from a sulphide ore, at the least capital cost and at the same time obtain the highest net return. This latter point is most important.

In a method for leaching gold from copper sulfides, the sulfide ores are first subjected to leaching of copper, thereby producing a leaching residue having 7.9% or less of the copper content. This leaching residue is mixed with a leach liquor, which contains the chloride ion and ferric ion and has 1.9 or less of pH. Gold and copper can be effectively leached from the copper sulfide ores.
