Abstract

"The plant in question was designed by the writer, to treat the immense tailings dumps of the Sacramento Gold Mining company at Mercur, Utah, consisting of one-half million tons of old cyanide tailings. The ore is porous and friable, causing much slime, which is impermeable to cyanide solution, by the old leaching system. Slime has always been troublesome, and the above plant was designed to overcome this difficulty"--page [1].
