Chapter 6.1 Arsenic - World Health Organization

Arsenic appears in nature primarily in the form of sulfides in association with the sulfides of ores of silver, lead, copper, nickel, antimony, cobalt and iron. Trace amounts of arsenic are found in soils and other environmental media. Arsenic is mainly transported in the environment by water. In oxygenated water, arsenic usually

Arsenic evolution as a tool for understanding formation of ...

Arsenic (As) and gold (Au) are closely associated in many gold deposits, both being hosted in Fe-sulfide minerals (pyrite, marcasite, and arsenopyrite), partly because As geochemistry controls Au accumulation. Yet, the partitioning behavior of As between pyrite, arsenopyrite, and hydrothermal fluids remains poorly understood.

Arsenic (As) is a naturally occurring constituent in low-sulphide gold-quartz vein deposits, the dominant deposit type for lode mines in the Sierra Nevada Foothills (SNFH) gold (Au) province of California. Concentrations of naturally occurring mercury (Hg) in the SNFH Au province are low, but extensive use and loss of elemental Hg during amalgamation processing of ore from lode and placer Au ...

Pyrite - Wikipedia

Pyrite is usually found associated with other sulfides or oxides in quartz veins, sedimentary rock, and metamorphic rock, as well as in coal beds and as a replacement mineral in fossils, but has also been identified in the sclerites of scaly-foot gastropods. Despite being nicknamed fool's gold, pyrite is sometimes found in association with small quantities of gold.

Arsenic - mysite.du.edu

They are secondary alteration products found in association with native metallic arsenic. In them, arsenic acts like a metal, but the compounds are mainly covalent. The structure of realgar is something like S=As-As=S, though the simple formula AsS gives the relative amounts of As and S. Phosphorus, likewise, forms a number of sulphides.

Arsenic Pyrite Gold Extraction by Alkaline Leaching Oxidation

Gold recovery was proportional to arsenic extraction during the oxidative leach, with >90 pct Au extraction for arsenic extraction ≥ 89 pct. Silver extraction did not follow this trend and ranged from 47 to 62 pct. Cyanide consumption was 2.6 kg NaCN per metric ton of leach residue and 5.7 kg NaCN per metric ton for the untreated ore.

ARSENIC MINERALS AS INDICATORS OF CONDITIONS OF GOLD ...

Arsenic minerals commonly occurring in Carlin-type gold deposits include orpiment and realgar and, more rarely, native arsenic and arsenopyrite. Other arsenic-bearing phases present include arsenian pyrite and stibnite and a number of thallium and mercury sulfides. Under conditions of constant temperature and pressure, the relative stability of arsenic minerals is a function of sulfur activity.

Arsenic Removal from Water

Arsenic (V) levels in solution can be reduced below 0. 1 mg/l in this process. A process based on the precipitation of barium arsenate appears to be applicable to the treatment of arsenic from gold processing waste water. The high cost of reagents may be an important consideration. Precipitation of Titanium (IV) – Arsenic (V) Compounds

arsenic | Definition, Symbol, Uses, & Facts | Britannica

Most commercial arsenic is recovered as a by-product of the smelting of copper, lead, cobalt, and gold ores. Only one stable isotope of arsenic, that of mass 75, occurs in nature. Among the artificial radioactive isotopes is one of mass 76, which has a half-life of 26.4 hours. Arsenic-72, -74, and -76 have been used in medical diagnostic ...

Arsenic in Historic Gold Mine Tailings - Nova Scotia

Arsenic and Gold Mine Tailings FAQ What is arsenic? Arsenic is a natural element that can be found distributed throughout the Earth's crust. It is found in arsenopyrite, the same rock in which gold is often embedded. Many areas of Nova Scotia have elevated arsenic levels, not just the gold mine tailing sites.

The gold-pyrite association is dependent on ore grade and textural features of the ore. When present with pyrite, arsenopyrite commonly will have significantly higher gold grades than the pyrite associations. Enargite (and Luzonite) is a common copper-arsenic mineral that can be a significant gold carrier.
