Uses Of Pyrite In Gold Mining

PYRITE AT THE HAILE MINE, KERSHAW, SOUTH

PYRITE AT THE HAILE MINE, KERSHAW, SOUTH

Apart from war needs of pyrite the location of the mine is pecu liarly favorable for the use of its pyrite in the fertilizer trade of the South, in which the demand for sulphuric acid is steadily increasing. In mining the pyrite certain siliceous zones containing $1 to $3 in gold to the ton are occasionally encountered

Pyrite Mineral | Uses and Properties

Some pyrites can contain 0.25% gold by weight or more. Although this is a tiny fraction of the ore, the value of gold is so high that the pyrite might be a worthwhile mining target. If pyrite contains 0.25% gold and the gold price is $1500 per troy ounce, then one ton of pyrite will contain about 73 troy ounces of gold worth over $109,000

What is Pyrite. Commonly called fool’s gold, pyrite is the Earth’s most abundant sulfide mineral. Recognized for its brass-yellow color which resembles that of gold, pyrite is a source of iron and sulfur and is used for the production of sulfuric acid. Some types of pyrite contain enough microscopic gold to warrant mining them as a gold ore

Mining for Pyrite Aka Fool's Gold and Multiple Uses for It

Jun 20, 2017 Industrial Uses of Pyrite. Iron pyrite or pyrite, also called fools gold, has a chemical formula of FeS2. It is an iron sulfide and is in many different types of rocks and even coal. Sometimes over time, it has even replaced the minerals in bones or shells of fossils. Pyrite has many commercial uses

Pyrite vs Gold – how to spot the difference

Pyrite vs Gold – how to spot the difference

Aug 05, 2018 Gold is very heavy! Pyrite is not. The specific density of pyrite is 5 and the specific density of gold is over 19! That means that the same volume of gold weighs 3.8 times that of pyrite. All methods of gold mining use this fact to separate gold from lighter materials, including pyrite

Feb 29, 2016 Feb 29, 2016 In general, gold-pyrite or gold-copper minerals associations have no problems and gold can be recovered without major problem. The lack of good liberation is a problem and the comminution circuit is the key element. The treatment of auriferous pyrite or silver sulphosalts with gold, have an excellent recovery by flotation

Uses Area. Pyrite was once used as a source of sulfur, but is now only a minor ore for both sulfur and iron. Pyrite from some localities is auriferous, and therefore is used as an ore of gold in gold-bearing localities. Pyrite was polished by the Native Americans in the early times and used as mirrors
