parameters considered during processing of gold in small scale mining

Tailingsinfo What are tailings?

When designing the processing plant, the types and quantities of reagents used should be considered together with any depressing requirements to lessen environmental impacts in the tailings streams (Ritcey 1989) Reagents dosed in small quantities are either consumed, retained in the process or are discharged with the tailings.
