To obtain optimal results of a gold mining activity is essential to know the distribution of gold and its mineralogy. The San Luis Alta gold mine (Ayacucho, Peru) is an example of this. In this artisanal gold mine the ore is processed by cyanidation in the treatment plant. For an efficient process the reagent used will depend on how the gold is found [1]. The present work has been carried out to determine the gold characteristics to design an optimal processing of the materials from San Luis. Th...
