Leaching process for copper concentrates The University

A method of leaching copper from copper sulphide-containing concentrates, such as chalcopyrite, includes using pyrite as a catalyst for ferric reduction in order to eliminate passivation of the chalcopyrite surface, the process being carried out under conditions whereby the pyrite is not materially oxidized, for example by maintaining the operating solution potential at a suitable level.

Concept for a Hydrometallurgical Processing of a Copper

Mar 11, 2020· After the leaching, the copper is extracted by solvent extraction. After the stripping, the sulfate solution can be partly recycled as leaching agent, while metallic copper is won by electrowinning. Next, the iron has to be removed from the process stream before further treatment.

Copper Production: How Is Copper Made? ThoughtCo

Sep 26, 2019· During this reaction, copper ions are exchanged for hydrogen ions, allowing the acid solution to be recovered and re-used in the leaching process. The copper-rich aqueous solution is then transferred to an electrolytic tank where the electro-winning part of the process occurs.

New breakthrough copper recovery process developed by FLSmidth

Nov 09, 2018· The rapid leach kinetics and high copper recoveries place FLSmidth ROL’s process economics on par with stirred-tank leaching of secondary copper sulphide concentrates. The key to the high performance of the process is the use of very low energy, inter-stage or intra-stage attrition along with the activation of the mineral to enhance the

The selective leaching of copper from a gold–copper

gold leaching either using the same process at elevated temperature (40–60 °C), as patented by the authors, or using a cyanidation process. Copper selective leaching will reduce the gold losses due to a cementa-tion mechanism of gold in the presence of metallic copper as all of the metallic copper will dissolve in the pre-leaching stage.

How Hydrometallurgy and the SX/EW Process Made Copper

Since the copper ion is exchanged for hydrogen ion, the aqueous phase is returned to its original acidity and recycled to the leaching step of the process. Meanwhile, the copper-bearing organic phase is stripped of its copper by contacting it with a strongly acidified aqueous solution at which time the copper is moved to the aqueous phase while

Recovery of Copper by Solution Mining Methods

precipitate copper onto iron (Arbiter and Fletcher, 1994). This process became known as the “cementation process”, which is apparently derived from the Spanish word “cementación”, meaning precipitation. Over the next three centuries, it was the primary method used to recover dissolved copper from dilute leach solutions, before being

Leaching Mining Fundamentals

Leaching is a chemical process in mining for extracting valuable minerals from the ore. Leaching also takes place in nature where the rocks are dissolved by water. Post leaching, the rocks areleft with smaller proportion of minerals that they originally contained.
