The current causes the gold to plate out onto the steel wool cathodes. Upon the completion of an electrowinning batch, the cathodes are removed from the cell for calcining and smelting. Calcining involves prolonged heating of the cathodes at 750 ° C, the purpose being to oxidise the impurities (iron, copper etc) that are present with the gold

Gold Fields South Deep Gold Mine How we process

Step 5: Refining and Smelting. The eluate solution is pumped through electro-winning reactors where gold is plated onto cathode steel mesh or wool. (Electrowinning is a process of recovering metals from a solution by passing a current through it). The plated gold is then washed off and dried in cylinders called calciners, inside heated furnaces.

Another thing about mercury: the article states that it's removed from electrowinning cathode material or Merill-Krowe precipitates by retorting. I'm not aware of any examples of retorting the steel wool cathodes prior to smelting. Retorting was the process used when mercury was intentionally used to recover gold by amalgamation.

The role of metallurgy in enhancing beneficiation

The gold is extracted from the cyanide solution using activated carbon. The gold is removed from the activated carbon into a solution. This solution undergoes electrowinning to deposit the gold onto steel wool, which is then smelted into an impure gold bar. These impure bars are sent to the Rand Refinery for final treatment to produce pure gold.
