US5074910A - Process for recovering precious metals …

The present invention is a process to recover precious metals from sulfide ores. It involves chlorinating a mixture of an ore concentrate and salt to form a liquid melt. The salt preferably contains potassium chloride. This chlorination is carried out at a temperature between 300° and 600° C. while stirring. The process converts precious metals in the elemental and sulfide forms into ...

However, retrieving precious metals from waste electronics is difficult for one of the same reasons the materials are so valued: they are generally unreactive. Current recylcing methods therefore involve strongly corrosive and toxic reagents such as dissolving in aqua regia, and proposed alternatives are usually complex and difficult to scale up.

Bulk Ore Sorting in Base and Precious Metals

Ore sorting is a very broad concept that includes sorting by grade, particle size, and mineralogy across many different mineral processes. Continuous analysis of ore in base and precious metal applications is best accomplished using rapid online elemental analysis, with either PGNAA (Prompt Gamma Neutron Activation Analysis) or PFTNA (Pulsed Fast Thermal Neutron Activation).
