PLEASE HOW RECAPTURING GOLD FROM SOLUTION TO WHICH IN IT potassium cyanide (30g/L) and H2O2 ( OXYGEN WATER 7cc/L) WE OUR USE THIS SOLUTION AT BOMB OPERATION FOR BUFFING JEWELRY. WE OUR USE (ZINC) ZN . AND WAS OUR RECAPTURING LITTLE FOR GOLD.
The peroxide present makes the recovery of the gold more difficult. If you first destroy the peroxide with a reducing agent, then the zinc dust, or ion exchange, or electrolytic recovery will all work to recover the gold.
The combination of cyanide and peroxide is actually a gold stripping solution. But, once the peroxide is gone, any of the traditional gold recovery methods will work. If you try this, please be careful, since the reaction of the peroxide with a reducing agent can be a violent one. You must add the reducing agent slowly while agitating the solution.
Good Luck!Lyle Kirman
