The supernatant liquid is led into settling tanks, where a further amount of "gold is deposited, r and is then filtered through sawdust or sand, the sawdust being afterwards burnt and the gold separated from the ashes and the sand treated in the chloridizing vat.
The dry method consists in an oxidizing roasting of the ores, and a subsequent chloridizing roasting with either common salt or Abraumsalz in reverberatory or muffle furnaces.
According as a preliminary chloridizing roast has or has not been given, the process is classed as roast-amalgamation or raw-amalgamation.
In a chloridizing roast chlorine produces its effect as nascent chlorine or gaseous hydrochloric acid.
