Pressure oxidation overview - ScienceDirect

Pressure oxidation refers to the oxidation of sulfides, such as pyrite [FeS 2] and marcasite [FeS 2 ], at elevated temperature and pressure. Oxidation releases encapsulated gold grains from the sulfides and makes the oxidation residue of the ore or concentrate more amenable for gold recovery by cyanidation in a subsequent leaching step.

Pressure Oxidation - Caldera Engineering

Pressure Oxidation (POX) is a process used to extract gold, copper, zinc, molybdenum, and uranium from refractory ore bodies. The POX process utilizes elevated temperatures (roughly 230 degrees Celsius), elevated pressures (roughly 35 bar or 510 psi), and oxygen to liberate the minerals from refractory ores.
