2007-11-16 · Cyanide is present in the effluent waters of several industries. The mining and mineral processing industries, especially gold processing, use a great amount of cyanide (Ingles and Scott 1993), as do a number of chemical synthesis (nylon, fibers, resins, herbicides) and metallurgical (plating and surface finishing) processes (Mosher and Figueroa 1996; Patil and Paknikar 2000).

Cyanide hazards to plants and animals from gold mining

Cyanide extraction of gold through milling of high-grade ores and heap leaching of low-grade ores requires cycling of millions of liters of alkaline water containing high concentrations of potentially toxic sodium cyanide (NaCN), free cyanide, and metal-cyanide complexes.
