Gold Smelting Process In The Gold Mining Industry ( Video )


Gold smelting process is the most important in the final stages of processing the gold. In the gold mining industry the smelting process used to make a Dor Bar and purification process that utilizes heat with a temperature high pressure. In general, the most basic definition of a gold smelting is the final stage of the process of refining gold from gold processing.

Before stage gold smelting process, The mining industry carry out a gold mineral mining activities from the earth, where the mining process through several stages of processing. The process of extracting and gold mineral search is an initial stage of mining. Then proceed to the processing of minerals from the mining area to the into mineral processing systems. Some ways of processing the gold minerals in the mining industry before the final stage gold smelting process, such as the processing of gold by Heap leaching methods, flotation process which produces mineral ore concentrate, tank leaching process is the processing of gold by washing or the process of dissulotion gold from mineral rock in the tank which would later produce a mineral concentrate gold ore.

      Pyrometallurgy, or smelting, usually used in the smelting process of copper ore with sulfide and iron sulfide minerals. The concentrate is dried and fed into a furnace. The minerals are partially oxidized and melted, resulting in segregated layers.

Matte coating refers to a mixture of the iron sulfide-copper sinks to the bottom. The slag, which refers to the remaining impurities, floats on top of the matte. The slag is discarded on site or sold as railroad ballast and sand blasting grit. Sulfur dioxide gases are also collected and made into sulfuric acid for use in hydrometallurgical leaching (discussed below) or sold off-site.

Furnace Set Melting Oven Kit Set for Melting Gold Silver Copper Precious Metals


New Kwik Kiln Propane Melting chamber Set 21A Designed to melt around 2-5 ounces of Gold. This Kwik Kiln set can be used with Silver, Copper, Aluminum, Brass and other precious metals. The Kwik Kiln uses 2 propane or MAPP gas bottles (Not Included). 

Kiln Dimensions - Outer - 4" (101mm) Dia. x 4" (101mm) Height Inner - 1.756" (44mm) Dia. x 1.53" (39mm) Depth Wall Thickness 1.15"(30mm) Kiln Set Includes - 1 - Kiwk Kiln 1 pair of 13" Long Heat Resistant Gloves 1 - 1 oz Gold Graphite Ingot Mold 1 - 5/16" x 12" Graphite Stir Rod 1 - 4 oz Borax Casting Flux 1 - Set of Tongs 2 - Graphite Crucibles (Holds up to 6 oz of Gold Each) Propane Bottles not included This unit is portable - Take it with you and melt up to 5 ounces of gold! Designed for Jewelers, Metalsmiths and Refiners

Small And Portable Gold Smelting Cupelling Kit


Looking for a small and portable kiln that can melt up to an ounce of clean placer gold out in the field or at home? The Kwik Kiln Cupelling Kit is a portable propane-fired kiln designed to do just that.
Kit includes: 3.5" tall x 4" in dia kiln, 4 premium bone ash cupels, stainless steel mini tongs, instructions •

The Kwik Kiln is 3.5" tall x 4" in diameter and consists of a 1" base layer and 1.5" kiln chamber - all wrapped in a stainless steel jacket to keep it together. The lid is 1" thick.

The chamber has two different size chamber pieces, one of which is beveled, configured for cupelling. Two torches are needed to create the swirling heat effect (see photo). Can be used to perform scorification assays in the field, too.

Propane bottles and nozzles NOT included. NOTE: This cupelling kiln is for cupelling the lead prill after doing a fire assay. Cupels absorb lead in the prill. Cupels are not to be used like a crucible.

Furnace Metals Melting Portable

      Furnace Metals Melting portable The Hybrid Metals Melting Kiln is a small and portable combination furnace for both cupelling or melting pure metals.

This Hybrid Kiln Kit supplies you with everything you need (except propane torches) to melt 1 to 5 oz of gold or scrap metals (1 to 3 ounces capacity for silver). At only 3 pounds, you can take it to the field with you and melt placer gold.

It consists of a 1" base layer and 1.5" kiln chamber - all wrapped in a stainless steel jacket to keep it together. The lid is 1" thick.

The alumina silica refractory material is good for up to 2300 degrees Fahrenheit. Once the material reaches the targeted melting temperatures, the refractory material will shrink approximately 5% which will create small cracks in the material when it cools.

However, cracking is not detrimental to the operation of the kiln or the life expectancy of the kiln. Two torches are needed to create the swirling heat effect (see photo). Can be used to perform scorification assays in the field, too. Hybrid Metals Melting Kiln Kit includes:

Kiln, 4 premium bone ash cupels, 2 mini graphite crucibles, 2 oz gold (1 oz silver) graphite loaf mold, stainless steel mini tongs for cupels, 6 inch scissor tongs (not pictured), 3 ounces of melting flux, Instructions for both cupelling and melting

* Propane bottles and nozzles not included

* NOTE FROM MANUFACTURER: The Kwik Kiln is designed to be heated with 2 pencil tip PROPANE torches simultaneously. Manufacturer will not warranty any Kwik Kiln heated too high, improperly, or in a manner that goes against its design.

This includes using other types of torches, or using Mapp gas, which gives off more heat. Use propane only. This kiln ships via Priority Mail. Please be sure to provide an address where you receive US Mail.

Smelting is a form of extractive metallurgy; its main use is to the process of separating the metal from impurities by heating the concentrate to a high temperature to cause the metal to melt. Smelting the concentrate produces a metal or a high-grade metallic mixture along with a solid waste product called slag.

This includes iron extraction from iron ore, and copper extraction and other base metals from their ores. This usually involves the reduction of metal oxides (ore) to metal (reduction reaction are those which take electrons away from the elements, the reduction becomes the opposite of oxidation reactions), and the formation of non-metal oxide waste known as slag.

Smelting uses heat and a chemical reducing agent to change the oxidation state of the metal ore; the reducing agent is commonly a source of carbon such as coke, or in earlier times charcoal. The carbon or carbon monoxide derived from it removes oxygen from the ore to leave the metal. The carbon is thus oxidized in two stages, producing first carbon monoxide and then carbon dioxide.

And in the process of smelting, the ore minerals may be added by Chemical Fusing Metallic Minerals such as borax, backing soda, or with ammonium chloride (NH4Cl) to mineral-borne heavy metals along with gold ore minerals can be separated. Fluxes are used in smelting for several purposes, chief among them catalyzing the desired reactions and chemically binding to unwanted impurities or reaction products. Calcium oxide, in the form of lime, was often used for this purpose, since it could react with the carbon dioxide sulfur dioxide produced during roasting and smelting to keep them out of the working environment.
