62 Miller, Jan D.Noncyanide leaching of an auriferous pyrite ore from EcuadorGold leaching of an auriferous pyrite ore from the Portovelo deposit in Ecuador indicates that noncyanide leaching systems, such as thiocyanate and thiourea, are not as effective as the traditional cyanide system. For example, whereas approximately 95% of the gold can be leached from the ore with cy...Gold leaching; Refractory ores; Thiocyanate; Thiourea2000
