Title Spectroscopic analysis of passivation reactions for carbonaceous matter from carlin trend ores
Date 1990
Description Abstract. Three different refractory carbonaceous gold ores from the Carlin operation in northeastern Nevada were investigated to characterize the effect of passivation treatments on the nature of the carbonaceous material. The carbonaceous material was chemically isolated from the ores and passivated residues, and examined by FTIR spectroscopy, elemental analysis, and gold adsorption capacity. The main component of the carbonaceous material in these ores was found to be a naturally occurring activated carbon-type compound. Hydrocarbons were detected on rare occasions, but no evidence was seen for humic acids.
