Iron Control in Hydrometallurgy - sgs

copper producer [3]. This paper details two other positive uses of iron in hydrometallurgy. The . first case describes the use of iron as an oxidant to leach metal sulphides, in particular copper and zinc sulphides. The second case describes the use of iron as a reductant for the leaching of refractory cobalt oxides. IRON AS AN OXIDANT TO

Producing Copper Nature's Way: Bioleaching

Further, through the use of biooxidation, it is now possible to leach many of the copper sulfide minerals present in the ore. While chalcopyrite remains refractory to ambient temperature bioleaching, other copper sulfide minerals - the secondary sulfide minerals - such as chalcocite, covellite, bornite, etc. - are leachable by today's technology.

High Pressure Acid Leach - Caldera Engineering

High Pressure Acid Leach (HPAL) is a process used to extract nickel and cobalt from laterite ore bodies. The HPAL process utilizes elevated temperatures (roughly 255 degrees Celsius), elevated pressures (roughly 50 bar or 725 psi), and sulfuric acid to separate nickel and cobalt from the laterite ore.

A New Process for Cobalt Nickel Separation - Teck

A synthetic leach, as shown in Table 1, was prepared from metal sulphate salts, and was intended to simulate leach liquor derived from leaching a typical nickel laterite. It was first extracted with Cyanex 272 at 10 vol/v% in Shellsol 2046AR as diluent. The objective was to extract sufficient cobalt from the leach liquor so that the resultant ...
