Though the test results indicate less than 0.01% sulfide-sulfur and posses a high capacity for acid neutralization, yet, the number of samples tested to establish tailings geochemistry is insufficient and cannot be considered representative of the varying lithology present in the orebody. The sampling program should be designed

Pyritic mine tailings (mineral waste generated by metal mining) pose significant risk to the environment as point sources of acidic, metal-rich effluents (acid mine drainage [AMD]). While the accelerated oxidative dissolution of pyrite and other sulfide minerals in tailings by acidophilic chemolithotrophic prokaryotes has been widely reported, other acidophiles (heterotrophic bacteria that ...

Very often the first placer sampling is of a cursory nature sufficient only to indicate if further interest in the property is warranted or to serve as a guide in future sampling or exploratory work. Some sampling methods to be considered are: Sampling existing exposures. Use of hand-dug excavations. Machine-dug shafts. Backhoe pits or trenches.

First we'll compare the performance of SilcoNert 2000 in sulfur analysis applications. Reactive compounds like hydrogen sulfide (H 2 S) get stuck in analytical systems, causing significant delays in response time. SilcoNert® coated surfaces allow compounds to travel through critical flow paths unimpeded, offering near-real-time response and improving lab productivity.
