Extraction of Zinc from Smithsonite by Ammonia Leaching
by ammonia leaching on cerussite flotation tailings. Initial lead and zinc grades of the ore were 13.31% and 27.86%, respectively. As a result of a series of cerussite flotation tests, a lead concentrate containing 63.25% Pb was produced with 82.76% recovery. After that, tailing of flotation was treated with ammonia (NH 3) to extract zinc.
Ammonia Leaching: An Alternate Route for Copper Recovery
The use of ammonia as a leaching agent in the recovery of copper from ores and concentrates has a number of potential benefits. These include the ability to treat ores with an acid consuming gangue, noncorrosivity, the insolubility of iron in the solution and increased selectivity. This paper reviews the previous and current use of

Processing CopperGold Ores with Ammonia or Ammonia
A low grade copper flotation tailing from Telfer containing 1.2% Cu as chalcocite and cuprite and 5 gtt Au was leached with ammonia, cyanide and ammoniacyanide mixtures to extract copper and/or gold. Direct cyanidation extracted both copper and gold but consumed about 30 kgt 1 NaCN. Preleaching the tailing with an aerated ammonia solution containing
The remediation of ammoniumcontaining groundwater discharged from uranium mill tailing sites is a difficult problem facing the mining industry. The Monument Valley site is a former uranium mining site in the southwest US with both ammonium and nitrate contamination of groundwater. In this study
A 2,000ton Copper Leaching plant for the treatment of the accumulated copper concentrator tailing was built and put into operation. During the experimental period, the first step was that of laboratory experiments or beaker leaches. The results on this small scale were so satisfactory that a
Tailings, also called mine dumps, culm dumps, slimes, tails, refuse, leach residue, slickens, or terracone (terrikon), are the materials left over after the process of separating the valuable fraction from the uneconomic fraction of an ore.Tailings are distinct from overburden, which is the waste rock or other material that overlies an ore or mineral body and is displaced during mining
Leaching ion adsorption rare earth by aluminum sulfate for
The role of AlS in the multistage leaching process is to increase the LE of IARE and to decrease the residual ammonium in tailing which in turn can reduce the emission of ammonium and the risk of landslide. 27 Therefore, the optimum ratio of ammonium sulfate to aluminum sulfate should be determined according to the LE of rare earth, the
