The cause of low gold recoveries can be either through the presence of naturally occurring ''preg robbing'' carbonaceous materials or gold physically ''locked'' in sulphide minerals. The majority of gold ores are classified refractory because the gold mineralogy is contained in sulphides.

With ores of higher gold content (i.e., greater than 20 grams of gold per ton of ore), cyanidation is accomplished by vat leaching, which involves holding a slurry of ore and solvent for several hours in large tanks equipped with agitators. For extracting gold from lowgrade ores, heap leaching is practiced.

Jul 06, 2020 · Gold producers in the area are able to take advantage of a process known as heap leaching. Nevada was the "birthplace" of modern gold heap leaching in the late 1960s. Essentially, the process involves irrigating a pile of crushed goldbearing ore with a solution designed to "leach" the precious metal from the rest of the material.
