    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    CONTAINED IN VOL. 03.05, 2016 Describes the determination of gold in ore processing cyanide solution in the range from 0.3 to 10.0 [mu]g/mL of gold by direct aspiration into an atomic absorption spectrometer.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    1.1These test methods cover the determination of gold in ore processing cyanide solutions within the following ranges:


    Application Range,

    Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry

    0.001 to 0.500

    Flame Atomic Absorption Spectrometry

    0.300 to 10.0

    Note 1:The lower limit for the Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry Method, 0.001 µg/mL, was set following the guidance of Practice E1601. The reproducibility Index, R, was calculated using the total standard deviation for the lowest concentration Youden pair solution.

    1.1.1These test methods may also be applied to cyanide leach solutions from metallurgical evaluation procedures.

    1.2The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

    1.3The test methods appear in the following order:



    Flame Atomic Absorption Spectrometry

    9 – 16

    Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry

    17 – 24

    1.4This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Specific precautions are given in 11.1, 11.1.1, 11.5, and 12.2.
