Answers (1)


In the cyanide extraction process, sodium cyanide (\mathrm{NaCN}) is commonly used as a reagent to extract gold and other precious metals from their ores. Sodium cyanide forms complexes with gold ions, allowing them to be solubilized and separated from the ore material. As a result, sodium cyanide (\mathrm{NaCN}) is a byproduct of the cyanide extraction process.
