VIDEO: Gold cyanidation research at Queen's

How do engineers come up with ways to extract the tiny amounts of gold (typically measured in grams) encased in each tonne of low-grade ore pulled from a mine? One widely used method is a process called cyanidation. Research undertaken by Rina Kim, a post-doctoral fellow with the Robert M. Buchan Department of Mining at Queen’s, aims to ensure gold cyanidation is as efficient and environmentally sustainable as possible. Here's how . . .
