||PCT/AU2013/001169||OSTEN, Karel, John||OSTEN, Karel, John|
A method for recovery of gold from a gold-containing, refractory pyrite-rich ore or concentrate is disclosed. The method results in the production of a high grade, gold-containing solid intermediate concentrate. One embodiment comprises the steps of treating gold-containing material (100) rich in pyrite, arseno-pyrite or other iron sulphide to yield a gold-containing refractory concentrate (110) comprising a host mineral matrix rich in pyrite, arseno-pyrite or other iron sulphide, pressure oxidation (112) of the refractory concentrate (110) under acidic conditions to decompose the host mineral matrix and precipitate basic ferric sulphate (Fe(OH)S04) to produce a pressure oxidation product (114), conditioning of the pressure oxidation product (114) under acidic conditions at atmospheric pressure to convert the basic ferric sulphate (Fe(OH)S04) to soluble ferric sulphate (Fe2(S04)3) to produce a conditioning product (120), solid/liquid separation of the conditioning product (120) to produce a high grade, gold-containing solid intermediate concentrate (124), and an acidic filtrate (126).

||PCT/AU2013/001152||MURRAY GOULBURN CO-OPERATIVE CO. LIMITED||BROWN, Andrew|
The invention provides a process for purifying lactoferrin from milk, the process comprising subjecting the milk to filtration to separate it into a retentate fraction comprising lactoferrin and a permeate fraction comprising growth factors and/or RNAses, wherein prior to and/or during filtration the milk is subjected to salt treatment such that growth factors and/or RNAses flow into the permeate. The invention also provides lactoferrin obtained from the process of the invention and uses thereof.
