What are the Extraction or Recovery Processes for Gold, Silver and Copper
September 11, 2008
Will you help me to find out different extraction or recovery processes available for gold, silver and copper? This for a study project purpose. I will be thankful for your help!

Hi, S. Your subject embraces everything from mining to recycling of three different metals. You might want to narrow it down by 99.9 percent before you start writing your project or your thesis won't fit on a single shelf in the library :-)
Please pick an individual subject like recovery of silver from X-ray films, or recovery of copper from defective printed wiring boards, or recovery of gold from abandoned mines by cyanide leaching, and you will still be able to write a report that is easily of book length. Good luck.
