ABSTRACT

Post-mining placer deposits include tailings, overburden rocks, and non-mined spaces
over the mining area (polygon) sides and in its bottom, and all this is a rock mass with
its gold grades ranging from 0.12 to 0.26 g/m3 to be all reprocessed using modern
equipment and advanced technologies. Non-extracted gold differs by its morphology
ranging from fine and rather thin platy to coarse native and quartz-aggregated types.
Innovative mining technologies imply the new ideology of reprocessing and
benefication of a payable rock mass with low average grades of recovered minerals.

Keywords: residual complex, bedrock, morphology of gold
