In such cases, ore must be pre-treated in order to release the gold physically and to make the ore amenable to cyanidation. The traditional methods of pre-treatment include oxidation by nitric acid, roasting or pressure oxidation. Roasting produces off-gases containing sulfur dioxide and arsenic trioxide, which requires later expensive treatment.

Copper extraction refers to the methods used to obtaining copper from its ores.The conversion of copper consists of a series of chemical, physical, and electrochemical processes. Methods have evolved and vary with country depending on the ore source, local environmental regulations, and other factors.
Raw ores or regulus containing much sulphide of copper may be fused with from 4 to 6 A,T. of litharge to 1 A.T. of ore. In this case the other fluxes, except sand, may be omitted. Some assayers prefer to concentrate the copper as a regulus, and then to treat this over again; little more than the ordinary quantity of litharge is then used, and not much iron.

A "refractory" gold ore is an ore that has ultra fine gold particles disseminated throughout its gold occluded minerals. These ores are naturally resistant to recovery by standard cyanidation and carbon adsorption processes. These refractory ores require pre-treatment in order for cyanidation to be effective in recovery of the gold. A refractory ore generally contains sulfide minerals, organic carbon, or both.

with gold molecules. With many sulfide ores, the ore cannot practically be ground down fine enough to expose the gold particles. The objective of pretreatment for these ores is to remove enough of the sulfide so that at least a small portion of all gold particles are directly exposed to the elements. Processes available for treatment all involve oxidation of sulfur to form water soluble sulfates or sulfur dioxide.
