rand refinery pty limited is the largest integrated single-site precious metals refining and smelting complex in the world. it was established in 1920 to refine gold within south africa which until that time had been refined in london. since its inception it has refined nearly 50,000 tonnes of gold.
applications. aqua regia is primarily used to produce chloroauric acid, the electrolyte in the wohlwill process for refining the highest quality 99.999% gold. aqua regia is also used in etching and in specific analytic procedures. it is also used in some laboratories to clean glassware of organic compounds and metal particles.
parting vessels used for refining gold with the cementation process have been found in london, lincoln, york and winchester. the london vessels, dating from the flavian period c.70–85ad , were sealed using luting clay ; xrf analysis detected gold and silver, with highest concentration around the sealed region showing possible escape of silver as the volatile silver chloride .
the occidental refinery or occidental thames refinery was an oil refinery on canvey island, essex, england.located in the thames estuary, the partly-built, non-operational, six million tonne/year refinery was planned and constructed by occidental refineries limited in 1970–5 and demolished in 1996–7.
for example, litharge of gold is litharge mixed with red lead, giving it a red color; litharge of bismuth is a similar result of the oxidation of bismuth; litharge of silver is litharge that comes as a by-product of separating silver from lead, in fact litharge originally meant the mineral residue from silver refining.
the borax method is a technique of artisanal gold mining, which uses borax as a flux to purify gold concentrates. by using borax, no mercury flour is produced, hence gold recovery increases. the borax method of gold extraction has been used by artisanal gold miners in the benguet area north of manila in the philippines for more than 30 years.

this method is used for refining gold. some gold remains in solution in the form of aucl 2 −. a solution of haucl 4 can also be obtained by the action of chlorine or chlorine water on metallic gold in hydrochloric acid: 2 au 3 cl 2 2 hcl 2 haucl 4. this reaction is widely used for extracting gold from electronic and other 'rich .
an electric arc furnace used for steelmaking consists of a refractory -lined vessel, usually water-cooled in larger sizes, covered with a retractable roof, and through which one or more graphite electrodes enter the furnace. the furnace is primarily split into three sections: the shell, which consists of the sidewalls and lower steel 'bowl';
to use grey pig iron, a preliminary refining process was necessary to remove silicon. the pig iron was melted in a running out furnace and then run out into a trough. this process oxidised the silicon to form a slag, which floated on the iron and was removed by lowering a dam at the end of the trough.
life. morfit was born in herculaneum, missouri on 19 november 1820 and was educated at the columbian university in georgetown washington, d.c. .before graduating, he began to study chemistry in the laboratory of james c. booth in philadelphia. he assisted booth in development of a new method of refining gold, and in 1850 was assigned a share of the patent rights.
the miller process is an industrial-scale chemical procedure used to refine gold to a high degree of purity 99.5% . it was invented by francis bowyer miller patented 1867 . this chemical process involves blowing a stream of pure chlorine gas over and through a crucible filled with molten, but impure, gold.
