Copper extraction

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 ...

Accelerating Copper Leaching from Sulfide Ores in Acid ...

A copper extraction of 63% was obtained by leaching pretreated ore in mini-columns using a leaching solution of 6.3 g/L of sodium nitrate and 20 g/L of chloride at pH 1 and a temperature of 25 °C. Raising the temperature and increasing the chloride concentration did not improve copper extraction rates under the studied conditions.

Copper Ore Hydrometallurgy and Pressure Leaching-Copper-

Copper hydrometallurgy is a branch of metallurgy method to extract copper directly from those difficult-to-concentrate copper oxide ore. Traditional copper hydrometallurgy process typically consists of atmospheric leaching, solvent extraction (SX) and electro-winning (EW). It can produce either copper cathode or copper sulphate crystal.
