Abstract
The San Pedro Frio district mining, Colombia, is a rich region producing gold-silver ores. Nowadays, the extraction processes used are amalgamation, percolation cyanidation and precipitation with zinc wood. Due to the ignorance of the ore characteristics, gold and silver treatment processes are inadequate and not efficient In addition the inappropriate use of mercury and cyanide cause environmental contamination. In this research the ore characterization was carried out obtaining fundamental parameters for the technical selection of more efficient gold and silver extraction processes. Experimental work was addressed to the study of both processes the agitation c...
