leaching of copper from tailings using ammonia

Copper processing is a complicated process that begins with mining of the ore (less than 1% copper) and ends with sheets of 99 99% pure copper called cathodes which will ultimately be made into products for everyday use The most common types of ore copper oxide and copper sulfide undergo two different processes hydrometallurgy and pyrometallurgy respectively due to the different

Leaching Of Plants Process US4165264A - Ammonia leaching - Google Patents An improved process for obtaining copper from a copper sulfide in which the copper sulfide is treated with oxygen and an aqueous leaching solution of ammonium carbonate to form a leach liquor which contains ammonia complexes of copper sulfate and copper carbonate the leach liquor is heated to form gaseous ammonia

Alternative lixiviants to cyanide for leaching gold ores 509 pilot-scale testwork The oxidant has varied from 0 to 20 g/L where in some cases the iron from the ore has been used Interestingly gold extraction has not always been as high as that obtained using cyanide In general reagent consumption is dependent on reagent concentration and

Abstract The leaching of copper from the tailings of Baifang Copper Mine in Hunan province in China by aqueous ammonia/ammonium chloride solutions has been studied The tailings belong to a low-grade and high-alkaline copper ore The effect of leaching time the concentration of ammonia solid/liquid ratio and temperature were investigated

As copper tailings appear in ground form the grading of copper tailings reported by Gupta and Thomas (2013) and Nitish et al (2013) has a sizeable silt fraction of 0 06–0 002 mm Copper tailings are considered to be finer than CS which usually has a dominant sand fraction Table 6 5 compares the geotechnical properties of copper tailings to those of CS which have been reported in this

Ammonia Leaching A New Approach of Copper Industry in

10/12/2013Ammonia and ammonium salts have been recognized as effective leaching agents in hydrometallurgical processes due to low toxicity and cost easy recovery and high selective recovery of metals New research findings on considerable advantages of leaching by these agents and elimination of problems associated with acid leaching have resulted in a new approach in the world to this method

Mixing the tailings with a cyanide solution or simply spraying the tailings with a cyanide solution would cause a chemical reaction to take place When gold and silver comes in contact with cyanide it liquefies Basics of Leaching - Chemical Engineering Resources Simply put leaching generally refers to the removal of a substance from a solid via a liquid extraction media The desired

Thiosulfate-copper-ammonia leaching of pure gold and there is an increasing interest towards cyanide-free leaching agents such as chloride thiourea and thiosulfate (Marsden and House 2006 Choi et al 2013) In thiosulfate gold leaching Cu2 ions are commonly used as oxidizing agents while the thiosulfate ion acts as a ligand forming a soluble gold thiosulfate-ammonia Extraction of

Ammonia leaching of sulfide copper concentrates generate buffer type liquors (pH ranges from 9 to 10) because of the excess of ammonia and significant amount of ammonia sulfate as a leaching agent Metals such as Cu Ni Co and Zn occur in ammonia systems as a cationic amminacomplexes Alkalinity of the solution and free ammonia concentration affect route of extraction (Miller et al 1981

Results of multiple regression analyses show that variations in the leaching of sulphate base cations and aluminium were strongly related to the atmospheric input of S this being the major source of actual acidification UN-2 At several sites Al leaching fluxes are higher than the acid deposition so the leaching of sulphate and nitrogen is higher than the input MultiUn At several sites
