• ### Ball millWikipedia

A ball mill is a type of grinder used to grind blend and sometimes for mixing of materials for use in mineral dressing processes paints pyrotechnics ceramics and selective laser sintering works on the principle of impact and attrition size reduction is done by impact as the balls drop from near the top of the shell. A ball mill consists of a hollow cylindrical shell rotati

• ### The Metallurgy of Cyanide Gold LeachingAn Introduction

Oct 20 2014 · Nature of Gold The surface of a gold particle will typically be dissolved at a rate of around 0.2-0.5 µm of surface depth per hour in a cyanide leach. For large gold particles and nuggets this is too slow to be fully dissolved in a typical processing plant. Much simpler and less expensive gravity methods are available to recover this gold.
