    Abstract: Refractory carbonaceous gold ores pose challenges during cyanidation of gold due to the presence of carbonaceous matter (CM) which preg-robs dissolved gold, and this results in a decreased recovery. In an on-going study, the fungus, Phanerochaete chrysosporium has been used to deactivate CM and decrease its ability to preg-rob aurocyanide. P. chrys... Show More
