Apr 9, 2012 . The experiments of agitation leaching were carried out in aqueous ammonia/ammonium carbonate solution, to recover copper from the flotation tailings of waste copper oxide residue. The main copper minerals contained in the flotation tailings are chrysocolla, malachite, and cuprite, with the copper grade.
Polish copper ores. A state of the art. The methods of metals recovery from copper ores with the biotechnological methods are widely known. The methods consist in bioleaching of coper ores, concentrates . a concept of the leaching method of flotation tailing from . As another example, an ammonia leaching was given. At.

Keywords: gold; cyanide; ammonia, copper minerals; chalcopyrite; bornite; djurleite. 1. Introduction ... Ruane, M. Gold recovery from the Paris mine tailings using ammoniacal cyanide Leachant. In.
Copper minerals present difficulties during the cyanide leaching of gold ores leading to excessively high consumption of cyanide (and oxygen) coupled with low extraction of gold. Copper cyanide species, if present at high levels, adversely affects the downstream processes such as the activated carbon adsorption and the.

Ammonia as an effective leaching agent has been widely used in a number of Hydrometallurgical processes. The main . Extraction of copper using ammonia solutions proceeds in.
Ammonia Leaching Processes. Ammonia leaching of copper was introduced at the Calumet and. Hecla mines in 1917. Copper was leached from.tailings and ore using an ammonium carbonate solution (Benedict, 1917; Eddy, 1919; Benedict and. Kenney, 1924). In 1924 the process was adapted to the leaching of nick.
Jun 10, 2011 . The studies on the effect of concentrations of ammonia, thiosulfate, and copper sulfate on thiosulfate leaching of Cannington tailings showed that the optimum leaching conditions (with respect to the highest silver recovery) were a thiosulfate concentration of 0.15M, and a copper sulfate concentration of.
The copper concentrate is sent to the copper smelter and 99.99% copper cathode is produced in electrowinning cells. The nickel ore is sent to the nickel refinery, where a complex set of reactions is carried out. These include leaching in autoclaves using ammonia, heated to around 200 deg F at elevated pressures of.
An extensive literature survey on the principles and applications of ammonia leaching processes in hydrometallurgy is presented in this paper.
