Reasons for Poor Planning of Precious Metal Recoveries

  • Claudia Gasparrini


Instruments and techniques for the study of gold and other precious metals in their ores are available. Nobody ever denies the importance of the knowledge of the microcomposition of the ore for proper recovery planning. Yet it seems as if generally very little is done towards the use of systematic studies before separation is attempted. Let us discuss in some more detail how some metallurgists and mineralogists function and try to understand why their way of operating is largely responsible for such an apparent contradiction.
