Jun 01, 2016 The popularity of cyanide can be attributed to the simplicity and selectivity of the extraction process. The cyanidation process relies on the fact that gold dissolves in aerated cyanide solutions to produce the gold cyanide complex AuCN 2 . The two redox half reactions representing this process are the oxidation of gold Eq.
In cyanidation, metallic gold is oxidised and dissolved in an alkaline cyanide solution. When gold dissolution is complete, the gold-bearing solution is separated from the solids.

Gold cyanidation extracts gold from the ground. Gold cyanidation, also called cyanide leaching, is a process used to extract gold from raw ore taken from the ground. It uses cyanide to dissolve the gold within the rock, which, itself, is not soluble in cyanide. The gold is then drawn out in a liquid form that can be treated to remove the cyanide.
