By doing this with no pH adjustment to the leachates copper was selectively removed as other metals present in significant concentrations in the leach liquors (iron and zinc) do not form sulfide phases at pH values <3. This approach would therefore facilitate the recovery and recycling of copper from both mineral tailings wastes.Recovery of γ-Fe2O3 from copper ore tailings by magnetization ... Six group experiments were carried out to optimize different parameters in both magnetization roasting and magnetic separation on γ-Fe 2 O 3 recovery from copper ore tailings including the ratio of coal to iron ore tailings roasting temperature roasting time airflow particle size magnetic field and the ratio of SDS. The sample was located in a programmable energy-saving tubular furnace (LTKC-6-16A) to magnetizing roast.
The iron ore deposits in India are rich in iron content but usually contains high alumina and silica. The current industrial practice results three products namely lump fines and slimes. The lump and fines with or without beneficiation are directly fed to the blast furnace and sintering plant respectively while the super fines or slimes are presently discarded as tailings. Around eight ...Process effluents and mine tailings: sources effects and ...

Impurities for Iron ore processing plants are mainly Silica Al2O3 and Sulfides.There is a copper processing plant in Chile which has a high content of Fe in its tailings. These tailings will be re-processed to recover the Fe and to produce a pellet feed concentrate.Novel method for iron recovery from hazardous iron ore ... Abstract In this paper a novel method to recover iron from iron ore tailing (IOT) was studied. The method was induced with carbothermic reduction followed by magnetic flocculation separation (MFS) and conventional magnetic separation (CMS). The effects of reduction temperature as well as the amount of coal and sodium carbonate on iron recovery efficiency were chiefly introduced according ...
Say a copper mine produced 1Mt of metal in 1999 at 90% recovery. The remaining 10% of copper around 111kt went to tailings. If the average copper price in 1999 was US$1500/tonne then that 10% represented US$166.5 million of metal. Fast forward 20 years and at today’s price US$5842/tonne if that material could be reprocessed and an extra ...Recovery of Iron Ore Tailings byColumn Flotation The concentration of iron ore by flotation is a technique consolidated worldwide for mineral particles ranging from 10 to 250 μm . In Brazil all the main pellet-feed producers use re- verse flotation being the tailing made up mostly of quartz and a concentrate constituted of iron oxides and iron hy- droxides.
considered as a copper slag. Recovery of pig iron containing copper from copper smelting slag by reduction smelting was also recently examined and successfully performed and produced the pig iron [ 9-11 ]. The flotation concentrate from gold mining tailings in Jeonnam Province was used in this research. The experiments included theProcessing of Konkola copper concen- trates and Chingola ... tailings has terminated the treatment rate would be increased to about 6 Mt per annum. This is equivalent to a finished copper production from CRO ore of about 40 000 ton per annum. In the hydrometallurgy option KCM’s total copper would be produced at the Nchanga facility (230 000 to 260 000 tonne copper/annum). There would be no need in this
After a 500-day precipitating period on a geochemical barrier the contents of nickel and copper in ore dressing tailings were found to increase 12- and 28-fold respectively. An effective sorbent of copper iron and nickel ions is a brucite-based product of hydrochloric acid treatment of vermiculite ore tailings.RECOVERY OF Co Ni AND Cu FROM THE TAILINGS OF DIVRIGI IRON ... In the Sivas-Divriği Iron Ore Concentrator 600000 t of tailings are discarded annually. There are already 1 million t of tailings deposited in ponds from the previous production activities. The presence of Co Ni and Cu in the tailings makes the beneficiation of those tailings attractive. In the experimental work sulphide concentrates were produced from these two types of tailings by ...

This fraction can vary in particle size from –200 µm down to –10 µm.
The ore passing from the furnace is cooled and fed to a second Wetherill-Rowand separator which removes the chalcopyrite as a magnetic product; the concentrate from this machine carries from 12 to 20 per cent. copper and the tailing from 0.2 to 0.5 per cent. copper varying with the quality of the ore and the amount put through.Managing tailings safely – Anglo American – Kumba Iron Ore Tailings are the materials left over following the processing of mined ore that separates the valuable metals or minerals from the host rock. Tailings are not the same as waste rock the latter being soil or rock or other material that covers or surrounds an orebody and that is displaced during mining but is not processed.
The recovery of iron from tailings has also been studied using magnetic separation after a pre-thermal treatment to transform the iron ores into magnetite . The objective of this study was to design a flotation circuit to produce pyrite concentrate of commercial interest from fresh tailings generated in a concentrator plant from the Atacama region Chile.Tailings Mineral Industry Solution For example a tailings stream in an iron ore application could be thickened to 45–50% solids Newtonian slurry in conventional or high-rate thickeners. Conversely the same tailings stream could be thickened to 65–70% solids non-Newtonian suspension using a paste thickener. Water Recovery

An effective sorbent of copper iron and nickel ions is a brucite-based product of hydrochloric acid treatment of vermiculite ore tailings.Recovery of Copper from Leached Tailing Solutions by Biosorption At the beginning in the first 4 h leaching the tailing contained 24.4 mg of copper and after the treatment the resulting concentration of copper was 45 mg/L (equivalent to 22.5 mg Cu) which means a recovery of 92%. To concentrate the copper content in the solution five 4 h leaching cycles were performed obtaining an increase in copper ...

This means that 4.3% of the copper present in the ore was lost in the tailings. (d) The % Weight Recovery is equal to the % Weight of the concentrate in Table 1. It can also be calculated from the assay values given in the table as follows: % Weight Recovery = 100·(2.09 - 0.1)(20 – 0.1) = 10%RIP PILOT PLANT FOR THE RECOVERY OF COPPER AND COBALT FROM ... value than Co. Cu recovery can be done at pH 3-3.5 after ferric removal while efficient cobalt recovery could be obtained at pH values > 4.0. Mintek previously evaluated the problem of simultaneous recovery of Cu Ni and Co via RIP . During that study it was concluded that a separate copper RIP plant followed by a Ni/Co RIP plant was
With advent of novel technologies mining companies are now figuring out ways to extract valuable metals from tailings. In gold copper sulfide and iron ore tailings the potential of extracting minerals is an opportunity. Reprocessing tailings to collect the valuable minerals can be a cost-effective approach compared to processing virgin material.XXVI International Mineral Processing Congress (IMPC 2012 ... tailings. Iron ore tailings containing around 48 - 60% Fe are generated from the iron ore washing plants and are disposed into tailing ponds without any further utility. These tailings in the form of slimes are not suitable in iron and steel making due to the presence of higher amount of gangue constituents.
