sulfuric acid copper leaching

Sulfuric acid leaching for capturing value from copper

Apr 01, 2019· Sulfuric acid leaching of copper rich slag with the optimized parameters can provide a copper rich process solution with iron as the main impurity metal. The solution can provide an attractive feed for integration into the industrial primary copper production with acceptable low Ni, As and Pb levels (43.6 g/L Cu, 9.4 g/L Fe, 0.3 g/L Ni, 0.1 g/L

Sulfuric acid injection in copper heap leaching LEWA

The leaching reagent (dilute sulfuric acid) is sprayed through sprinklers on top of the heap pile and allowed to trickle down through the heap, where it dissolves the copper from the ore. The resulting solution of sulfuric acid and copper sulfate is collected in a small pool. Copper concentration is around 65%. Next step is solvent extraction.

Copper Mining Operation Optimizes Sulfuric Acid Handling

Copper is fast becoming a critical resource as the world shifts to an increasingly lower carbon footprint, and with the growing demand comes a need for more efficient processing (i.e., refining) of the mineral ore. or leaching, to extract the metal. Natural copper, 29Cu. an accurate metering of the sulfuric acid flow was key to being

STUDIES ON THE CURING AND LEACHING KINETICS OF

existing mathematical models of heap leaching. Sulfuric acid curing is a pretreatment to accelerate the extraction kinetics of copper ores and is widely used in copper operations. The curing process involves the addition of a highly concentrated sulfuric acid to the copper ore during agglomeration. Then, chemical reactions already begin prior to

Leaching of Copper from Cuprous Oxide in Aerated

The leaching ef˜ciency of copper was reported to be about 50% in the case of leaching in sulfuric acid solution without other oxidants7–9). Although Sullivan and Oldright7 ) and Majima et al.9 observed that the intro-duction of oxygen or air enhanced the leaching ef˜ciency of copper by employing single experimental set without further

Extraction of Tin and Copper by Acid Leaching of PCBs

Feb 02, 2013· Rate of solder dissolution with time for different acid concentrations was studied. Sulfuric acid was found unable to leach the solder at low concentrations, so further study was discarded. Perchloric acid was also found ineffective. Nitric acid, a strong oxidizing agent has selective dssouton propertes for copper tn and lead. Moreover t is

UNDERSTANDING ACID CONSUMPTION AND ITS

Sulfuric acid (1.14 M made from reagent grade stock) was added at a rate of 40 microliters per minute using a syringe pump. The pH was monitored using a pH electrode throughout the course of leaching. Copper extraction was measured using a copper ion selective electrode. Data from the pH probe and copper ion selective electrode were recorded

Extraction of Tin and Copper by Acid Leaching of PCBs

Feb 02, 2013· For copper in the leached solution, sulfate bath was made by adding few drops of sulfuric acid and evaporating all the nitric acid. It was titrated to get the amount of copper present. For recovery, Cementation was carried out at 60 °C till all copper was recovered. 3. Results and Discussion

Copper extraction Wikipedia

Sulfide ores. Secondary sulfides those formed by supergene secondary enrichment are resistant to sulfuric leaching.These ores are a mixture of copper carbonate, sulfate, phosphate, and oxide minerals and secondary sulfide minerals, dominantly chalcocite but other minerals such as digenite can be important in some deposits.. Supergene ores rich in sulfides may be concentrated using

pressure leaching as well as agitated tank leaching, and there is a wide variation in the types of leach solutions that are processed by SX. The African operations have the advantage of high ore grades (3 to 5% acid-soluble Cu), and consequently signifi-cantly higher PLS copper grades than found in other regions (43 g/L Cu design at Kamoto
