    I have to correct myself. The precipitate in that text is metallic silver for the cyanide system. And there will be a sulfite. For a thiosulfate system the precipitate is stated to be similar.
    However another (industrial) source states silversulfide to be the precipitate in a thiosulfate system.
    Others describe it as black sludge.
