Gold recovery plant at Ametistovoye deposit

Exploration degree in accordance with the classification of the Russian Federation:

  • С1 category: appr. 2 mln. tons of ore, appr. 40 тons of gold, appr. 92 tons of silver;
  • С2 category: appr. 4.4 mln. tons of ore, appr. 62 тons of gold, appr. 150 tons of silver;
  • С1+С2 category: 6,4 mln. tons of ore, 102 тons of gold, 242 tons of silver.

Minerals content in ore and their economic value:

  • Gold and silver ratio comprises 1:3, it varies due to ore productivity: low-grade ore -1:6, high-grade ore- 1:1 - 2:1;
  • Average gold content  15 g./t, silver 36 g./t;
  • Generally ores contain pyrite, galenite, sphalerite, chalcopyrite, their content increases with depth up to 20-30%;
  • Placer gold is located mainly in quartz in the form of very thin dust-like/0.001-0.01mm/ joints with acanthite. Its fineness ranges from 200 to 680, generally from 550-600/;
  • There are impurity elements in gold, %: stibium – 0.008, arsenic – 0.002; tin- 0.0008; copper- 0.0006; manganese – 0.0001;
  • Besides main mineral components, some elements have high concentrations: plumbum- 0.5%, zinc - 0, 7%,selenium – 33 g./t.
