The Golden Cross mine was an open pit and underground gold and silver operation from December 1991 to April 1998, when 584,000 ounces of gold and 1,675,000 ounces of silver were produced from 5
In Australia, sodium cyanide is mainly used in the mining industry to recover gold from ore. For gold mining use in Australia, it is manufactured as solid briquettes, or provided in a liquid form containing approximately 30% NaCN.
Construction of the Rock Creek gold mine and mill complex, located 8 miles north of Nome, was completed late last year, except for the tailing storage facility, which was finished this spring.

WAD cyanide includes those cyanide species liberated at a moderate pH of 4.5 such as HCN(aq) and CN , the majority of Cu, Cd, Ni, Zn, Ag complexes and others with similar low dissociation constants (weak acid dissociable).
The main complexes constituting WAD cyanide in mining tailings waste are Cu(CN) 3(s), Zn(CN) 4(s), Ni(CN) 4(s) and Fe(CN) 6(s) (Botz et al., 1995, Ou and Zaidi, 1995), which readily dissociate in the gut following ingestion; therefore regulatory distinction between free, WAD and total cyanide is justified for monitoring purposes (Franson, 1992). In addition the specific chemical profiles of metal cyanide
including free cyanide (CN Free), weak acid dis sociable cyanide (CN WAD) and total cyanide (CN T). Strong acid dissociable cyanide (CN SAD) can be determined by calculation of the diffe rence between CN T and CN WAD  according to equation (1). CN SAD = CN T CN WAD (1) *CN Free was detected and includes in CN WAD or CN Free was a subset unit of CN WAD.
In mining process and discharge waters, CN , SCN , and [Fe(CN)6] 4 were identified as the major cyanide species, and a number of unidentified species also were encountered. The agreement between the sum of the cyanide species determined by IC ASRS CD FIGDAD and independently measured total or WAD cyanide concentrations were satisfactory for a

Because the TSF water contains WAD cyanide that will dissociate at low pH in the bird stomach [pH 1.83.0 (Duke et al., 1975)], the onset of any symptoms and death might be delayed. The chances of finding any carcasses nearby would be reduced as birds

This document provides general background information on the sampling and analysis of the various forms of cyanide in aqueous samples at gold and silver mining operations. It is not intended to be an all inclusive reference for cyanide sampling or analysis.
AbstractCyanide detoxification by chemical means (sulphite, hydrogen peroxide or Caros acid) has typically been adopted by the gold industry to meet the International Cyanide Management Institute (ICMI) code and/or regulatory compliance for discharge into tailings storage facilities (TSFs), treatment of TSF return water or the discharge of excess water from the mining operation.

Free cyanide (FCN), a carcinogenic product, is a chemical compound that is widely used without any control in artisanal small scale gold mining (ASGM) for gold processing.
gold processing tailings with residual WAD CN in solution above 50 mg/L, with a salinity of less than 50 000 mg/L present a risk to wildlife health (Adams et al 2008). As the tailings salinity is fresh, Table 3.3.1 of the Licence will be modified to require WADCN in tailings supernatant in the TSF to
2Newmont Mining Corporation, Denver, Colorado USA Presenter and Corresponding Author Thomas C Logan tom.logan@newmont ABSTRACT Newmont Golden Ridge Ltd, the Ghanaian subsidiary of Newmont Mining Corporation, has operat ed the Ahafo gold mill, a 7.5 Mt/a Carbon in Leach (CIL) cyanidation plant near Sunyani, Ghana since 2006.
The plant was designed with a downstream detoxification circuit to bring WAD cyanide levels down below 50mg/l WAD cyanide before disposal on the new TSF 4. A series of design, commissioning and teething problems were experienced between July 2014 and June 2015 resulting in significant and regular WAD cyanide exceedances above the 50mg/l levels.
The main WAD cyanide complexes in gold mine tailings are stable in the TSF environment but can release cyanide ions under varying environmental conditions including ingestion and absorption by wildlife. Therefore distinction between free, WAD and total cyanide forms in tailings water for regulatory purposes is justified.
In South African gold extraction, sodium cyanide is used to dissolve the gold [forming Au(CN) 2] from crushed ore in leach tanks, the solution is extracted for gold using activated carbon, and much of the liquid is then reused. The residue slurry contains the fine
