Selective leaching process for the recovery of copper and ...

A selective acid leaching process was then used to recover the copper content of the residue after filtration. In the second stage, an additional 1 N of sulphuric acid was added to the suspension in the selective leaching process, and the pH value was controlled at 1.5-2.0. The reagent sodium hydroxide (2 N) was used as leachate at a pH greater ...

Oxide Copper Leach Modeling - 911 Metallurgist

Oxide Copper Leach Modeling. In recent years interest in hydrometallurgy, particularly in the case of in-situ leaching and solution mining has remained at a high level. There are several studies published on the development of scale-up principles. D'Andrea and Runke described research on in-situ copper leaching at the Emerald Isle Mine whose ...

Copper Heap Leaching & SX-EW Slideshow - MineralsEd

Heap leaching & SX-EW is a method of extracting pure copper from oxide ore by placing the crushed ore on a pad in a heap and spraying the leaching solution, sulphuric acid, over the heap. The acid trickles through the heap and dissolves the copper mineral into solution. The leach solution collects at the bottom of the pad in a collection pond.

Copper Oxide Ore Leaching Ability and Cementation Behavior ...

Oxide minerals as described formerly can be treated by the hydrometallurgy method that contains three main steps 1) Leaching, 2) Solvent Extraction (SX) and 3) Electrowinning (EW) [7] [9] [10] There are other methods to recover copper after leaching [5].

Copper Mining and Extraction: Oxide Ores

The smelter for sulfide ores produces sulfur dioxide gas. This is scrubbed from the flue gases to make sulfuric acid for leaching copper from oxide ores. Scrubbing sulfur dioxide also protects the environment. A by-product of the smelting and converting furnaces is sulfuric acid. In what looks like a lucky coincidence, sulfuric acid is needed ...

LEACHING OF LOW-GRADE COPPER ORES: A CASE STUDY …

Oxide copper ore, mixed oxide-sulphide ores and low-grade copper sulphide ore, which, for economic reasons, cannot be enriched by flotation, may be processed by leaching methods. Agents for leaching copper can be acid, base, or salt solutions. Of all of these agents, sulphuric acid has been given the

Oxided Copper Ore Leaching

Leaching. The process requires the use of hydrochloric acid as leaching solution when treating copper ores, which may be produced in the plant itself. The operation is very simple, using sulphuric acid and NaCl as raw materials.

RECOVERY OF COPPER FROM OXIDE COPPER ORE BY …

The aim of this study was the recovery of copper from the oxide copper ore by froth flotation and agitating sulphuric acid (H 2 SO 4) leaching. The ore with 4.21% copper grade used in this study was obtained from Çorum-Dangaz region of Turkey. Native copper, cuprite (Cu 2 O), tenorite (CuO), and malachite (Cu 2 (OH) 2 /CO 3) were the
