About 10 years ago I was on a tour of the mining operation in Randsburg, the Yellow Aster. Someone asked how harmful was the cyanide residue in the heap leach pile or the liquid solution in the pond. We were told that after 2 days of exposure to sunlight, the cynaide was decomposed to the point that one could drink the solution in the pond. You might get sick, but cyanide would not be the cause of it.
