this mining operation. The process is currently unprofitable with a gold price around $300 per ounce. Process Description Unit 100 Size Reduction of Ore The BFD of the overall process is shown in Figure 1. The PFD for Unit 100, shown in Figure 2, is designed to reduce 41.5 tons/hr of gold ore from a feed range of 2-5” to 160 microns.

May 15, 2021 The Miller process uses gaseous chlorine to extract impurities when gold is at melting point; impurities separate into a layer on the surface of the molten purified gold. The Miller process is rapid and simple, but it produces gold of only about 99.5 percent purity. The Wohlwill process increases purity to about 99.99 percent by electrolysis.
