Any test method that reports the sum of Total Cyanide + SCN

MANUAL OF STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURES FOR …

2007-1-29 · Cyanide is a substance that often occurs in combination with other chemicals in the environment. It combines with other substances to form metallo-cyanide, organo-cyanide, or cyano-nitrile complexes (Duodoroff 1976, 1980; Leduc et al. 1982; Leduc 1984, Eisler 1991). Organically-combined cyanides (for example,

Cyanide Practice

2011-11-10 · In many plants a solution of cyanide is fed into the material during the crushing. In this case it is usual to pass the crushed material over amalgamating plates of copper as it comes from the stamps: the mercury on the plates seizes the coarser particles of gold at a considerable sav ing of time and expense.
