Gold & uranium in used ore material from ore dumps and tailing piles

AppNote XRF1576: analysis of Au and U in used ore material

Background

Measurement of gold is demonstrated in used ore material such as from ore dumps and tailing piles. This App Note also shows the recovery of uranium from the used ore material. Recovering gold and other valuable metals from used ore materials can be a profitable recovery venture. In the processing of ores the desired metals and other base metals are extracted leaving mostly silicates, minerals and the other base ore materials. Gold and other precious metals can be recovered by further processing and extraction of the ore material from used ore dumps or old tailing piles. To screen and measuring the gold content Applied Rigaku offers the NEX DE EDXRF system with high throughput SDD detector to give superior measurement of trace valuable metals in various used ore materials.
