Howe writing in a recent com Ber of. The Western australian chamber of mines describes the Success Ful use of volatilization As a method of extracting Gold from the refractory ores of the Ganaba consolidated mines. The pro Cess is Heays suitable for Many other ores and is extremely simple and. Cheap in operation. The process has Aheady passed the Laboratory stage and is running with a Small Furnace. The results from this have been so consistent and the extraction is so Good varying from 92 to 94 per cent., that a huge Ramage is now being erected. Briefly stated lie process coasts in roasting the Ore with a Small percentage of Salt whereby the Gold is volatile i and passes off in fumes. Tiesa Are led through Chambers and drenched with water which dissolves Lime Arseniu and Iron salts and leaves the Gold sus Pended in the solution As a Black powder. This water is pumped through a filter press before returning to the Cha Beca to attack More fumes. The Black Gold slime re name of course m the filter press from which it can he removed at any time and smelted it is not absolutely necessary to grind the Ore very Fine before roasting. Ore As coarse As 20-mesh has been successfully Volatilized but the finer the Ore the quicker the volatilization. Thud the same Ore ground to pass a 100-mesh screen is Volatilized m 10 minutes to 40 mesh in 30 minutes end to 30-mesh in 50 minutes. It wih therefore be found in most cases cheaper to grind the Ore Fine than to keep it for a prolonged time in a Furnace at a High temperature. The Salt May be mixed with the Ore dry the Ore Mav be wet crushed in Salt water from the lines Salt lakes and subsequently dried if the Ore is Given a rough preliminary roast before the addition of Salt. 1 to 2" per cent is sufficient for most ores but it mixed with the raw Ore More Salt say 3 to 4 pee necessary.
