Abstract
Cyanide is a well-known leaching agent for the extraction of gold and silver from ores: however, it can be harmful to the environment if not managed properly. In particular, wastes associated with cyanide leaching operations may contain cyanide concentrations that are toxic to wildlife. A number of methods are available for the destruction of cyanide present in mineral-processing wastes. This U.S. Bureau of Mines paper reviews the current practices for cyanide degradation, along with the fundamental reactions, operating parameters, advantages, and disadvantages.
