Extraction of gold using cyanide NZQA

To make gold soluble sodium cyanide (NaCN) is added and the cyanide ion forms a complex ion with the gold. This complex ion, [Au(CN)2]-, is readily soluble. Issues of gold extraction using cyanide: Cyanide is toxic to animal and plant life and may cause death if exposed to high enough doses. Free cyanide is cyanide ion (CN-) and hydrogen
