chemical reactions related to cyanide in gold mining

BACKGROUND NOTE ON CYANIDE IN GOLD MINING

2013-9-24  The use of cyanide in mining is however controversial, as spills have the potential to inundate an ecosystem with toxic levels of cyanide: recent cyanide-related disasters in the EU include Stava (Italy, 1985), Los Frailes (S pain, 1998) and Baia Borsa (R omania, 2000). The worst accident took place in 2000 at a gold mine in Baia
