Editorial Reviews

Review

A very complete book. Highly recommended. -- Gold Bulletin October 2006

Highly recommended to hydrometallurgists, students, and engineeers. The authors are to be congratulated for their fine work. -- Minerals Engineering, Mineral Processing & Extractive Metallurgy

From the Publisher

This book is a valuable asset for all professionals involved in the precious metals industries. It will be of particular interest and use to engineers and scientists (including extraction metallurgists, mineral/metallurgical engineers, electrochemists, chemical engineers, mineral technologists, mining engineers, and material scientists), plant managers and operators, academics, educators, and students working in gold extraction in either production, research, or consulting capacities.

This book is an amazingly detailed exposition of gold concentration and extraction. Many books are long on the theory and very thin on the engineering issues involved. Other books are enhanced process diagrams and cookbooks and give little theory. This book is a treasure with a perfect blend of theory and the engineering process to utilize that theory.
Although I have a strong sciences background and 30 years of engineering experience my area is expertise is well outside of geology and process control chemistry. Therefore, a comprehensive view of the entire processing from geology to gold bar is a real treat.
One other item - trying to get this information on a paper by paper basis would be financially ruinous as well as maddening.

Very detailed and thorough. Written in such a way that even mining engineers could follow it (if one ever read it). And by that I just mean that it is not their field of expertise. How does one remove a review from Amazon?

Thank you for this!

Excellent book - a "must have" for anyone in gold metallurgy. It address the chemistry and engineering of different processes as well as gives you a background on mineralogy and reviews principles of hydrometallurgy.

Excellent survey of the technology, with proper explanations of the chemistry and numerous literature references. A 50 page section describing actual processing circuits at major gold fields also valuable.
