Pyrite Leaching Behaviour under CESL Process Conditions

Pyrite Leaching Behaviour under CESL Process Conditions H. Salomon-De-Friedberg Teck Resources Limited 12380 Horseshoe Way Richmond, B.C., Canada V7A 4Z1 ([email protected]) ABSTRACT The amount of pyrite in copper concentrates fed to the CESL Process can vary appreciably. The fraction of pyrite that oxidizes influences both capital and

Bioleaching: Introduction, Methods, Application, Copper

This leaching process takes place without direct involvement of microorganisms but they indirectly support the leaching by producing agents responsible for oxidation of minerals. It can be explained by the process of oxidation of pyrite. Pyrite is a common rock mineral that is found in association with many ores. The pyrite is initially oxidized to elemental sulphur equation 4, which is

Secondly, it is worth noting that the POX residue can be leached in an atmospheric halide leaching step to recover precious metals, such as gold and silver, that may be present in the copper concentrate. This additional step is likely to improve the

Galvanox Copper Leaching Process

This will insure that copper from the pyrite does not “drown out” the copper in the major material. The second test should be with a proven pyrite. Active pyrite is the A standard. If the candidate material reacts to pyrite or another proven pyrite but does not react with the pyrite already in the con, have a look at where in the flotation process the pyrite is being produced.

Heap leaching Wikipedia

Heap leaching is an industrial mining process used to extract precious metals, copper, uranium, and other compounds from oreusing a series of stone reactions that absorb specific minerals and re-separate them after their division from other earth materials. Similar to in situ mining, heap leach mining differs in that it places ore on a liner, then adds the chemicals via drip systems to the ore, whereas in situ mining lacks these liners and pulls pregnant solution up to obtain the minerals. Heap leaching is widely used i

The mechanism of chalcopyrite leaching in the presence of

In this process, pyrite samples are pretreated with a miniscule amount of silver and used as a catalyst in atmospheric leaching of chalcopyrite. The aim of this study was to understand the mechanism of this process and to reveal the role of silver and pyrite in accelerating the rate of chalcopyrite leaching. It is shown that this process, known as Galvanox™, is the galvanically assisted

Copper extraction Wikipedia

Copper extraction refers to the methods used to obtain copper from its ores.The conversion of copper consists of a series of physical and electrochemical processes. Methods have evolved and vary with country depending on the ore source, local environmental regulations, and other factors.

The role of galena associated with silver-enhanced pyrite

Accordingly, in the Galvanox™ process, it has been noted that pyrite samples from different sources influence the kinetics of chalcopyrite leaching differently. Recently, extensive research has been conducted to improve the catalytic properties of pyrite such that all pyrite samples accelerate the rate of copper extraction from chalcopyrite regardless of the source of pyrite samples ( Nazari

WO2012000090A1 Leaching process for copper

A method of recovering copper from chalcopyrite concentrate by stone leaching, using pyrite and silver. The catalytic properties of pyrite in the chalcopyrite leaching process are significantly enhanced by pretreating the pyrite with silver ions. Particulate pyrite is exposed to a solution containing silver ions to form silver-treated pyrite.

In this study, a process of acid leaching was used to separate and recover copper from the pyrite cinder (containing 0.60 wt.% Cu and 56.01 wt.% Fe). Both sulfuric acid and phosphoric acid systems were taken into consideration, and the effect of leaching parameters on the recovery of copper was conducted to investigate the effect of selective leaching in the two acidic systems.

Producing Copper Nature's Way: Bioleaching

The GEOCOAT™ Process A heap leaching process that is capable of bioleaching copper concentrates. It does this by coating the concentrate slurry onto a support rock, or substrate material, and stacking this coated material in a bioxidation heap. The support rock itself may be a low-grade copper ore. The ratio of support rock to concentrate is in the range of 5:1 to 10:1 by weight. The heap
