"Potassium cyanide solutions, hyposulphite of soda solutions, and a mixture called the Russell solution, are the solvents most used to win silver from its ores. We are not the first to attempt comparisons of the solvent powers of the different solutions named. It is difficult, at least we have found it difficult, to find tabulated, a comparison of the various solvents from the points of view of speed of action, of consumption of reagents, of suitability of one or another to a given type of ore"--page 1.
