Process for the leaching of copper oxide without the utilization of sulphuric acid wherein it comprises impregnating said copper oxide using an organic non contaminant leaching agent which consists in a aqueous solution composed by tricarboxylic acid (C 6 H 8 0 7 ) in combination with water, in a mixture with an acidity varying between pH 10 to 50; obtain copper citrate; and optionally ....

Ammonia/nitric Acid Leaching of Copper

an important advantage of the process [2] Ammonia leaching has been successfully developed, and applied to leach copper, due to its numerous advantages on the process, exceptionally its selectivity As reported in [3]; the process is more environment friendly than conventional acid heap leaching, which uses sulphuric acid to dissolve copper...

Copper Ore Hydrometallurgy and Pressure Leaching

Copper hydrometallurgy is a branch of metallurgy method to extract copper directly from those difficult-to-concentrate copper oxide ore Traditional copper hydrometallurgy process typically consists of atmospheric leaching, solvent extraction (SX) and electro-winning (EW) It can produce either copper cathode or copper sulphate crystal...

Application of SART to Heap Leaching of Gold

published SART process applied to gold-copper cyanide solutions was selected as it allows rapid precipitation of cyanide soluble copper as a relatively pure copper sulphide The process also allows effective recovery and recycle of cyanide back to the heap leach operation...

Copper Oxide Ore

Copper Oxide Ore Copper also occurs to a lesser extent in oxidized minerals (carbonates, oxides, hydroxy-silicates, sulfates) Copper metal is usually produced from these minerals by leaching, solvent extraction, and electrowinning...

chlorine leach recipe problems

Dec 03, 2009· If you have a leach of mixed stuff, put a piece of scrap copper in it - to replace out all metals that are more nobel than copper, ie silver, gold etc Or if copper ,...

High Pressure Acid Leach

Overview High Pressure Acid Leach (HPAL) is a process used to extract nickel and cobalt from laterite ore bodi 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...

Zinc Leaching and Purification

233: Hydrometallurgy

Heap leaching is an extraction process by which chemicals (usually sulfuric acid) are used to extract the economic element from ore which has been mined and placed in piles on the surface Heap leaching is generally economically feasible only for oxide ore deposits Oxidation of sulfide deposits occurs during the geological process called ....

Titanium processing

Titanium processing - Titanium processing - Extraction and refining: The production of titanium metal accounts for only 5 percent of annual titanium mineral consumption; the rest goes to the titanium pigment industry Pigments are produced using either a sulfate process or a more environmentally acceptable carbo-chlorination process (described below) that converts TiO2 into TiCl4 The latter ....

Heap leaching

This method is an acid heap leaching method like that of the copper method in that it utilises sulfuric acid instead of cyanide solution to dissolve the target minerals from crushed ore The amount of sulfuric acid required is much higher than for copper ores, as high as 1,000 kg of acid per tonne of ore, but 500 kg is more common...
