extracting copper tailings

New approaches for extracting and recovering metals from ...

15/05/2017  Mineral tailings from two copper mines were bioleached under different conditions. • Greatest copper extraction was achieved at extremely low pH, at 45 °C and under oxidative/reductive conditions.. Copper present in tailings PLS was selectively precipitated as CuS by biogenic H 2 S.. Microbial communities were dominated by Sb. thermosulfidooxidans and Acidithiobacillus spp.

Extracting Useable Minerals from Mining Waste in Tailings

The copper that could, theoretically, be extracted from the tailings at Cobre Las Cruces, was worth $44m. At the time of writing, the copper that could, theoretically, be extracted from the tailings at Cobre Las Cruces, was worth $44m, and this figure does not even take into account the profit that could be made from the zinc that was also extracted by way of bioleaching.

Leaching copper tailings

carry from .5% to .75% copper. These dumps have already been ground to a size suitable for leaching, and hence the cost/of mining and crushing could be done away with. This would bring the cost of leaching the copper to simply the cost of extracting the copper from the ore, and refining it.

Economic Potential for reprocessing Copper Mine Tailings ...

The Cu recovery of the tailings material from Taltal was high for both leaching techniques. With bioleaching around 70 % of the copper went into solution. This was substantially more than in the control experiment with slightly higher than 50 %. In the chemical leaching more than 80 % could be extracted.

From Tailings to Treasure? Miners Make Money

Australian Broadcasting Company reports that Western Australian company Carbine Resources is investigating the technical viability of extracting an estimated million ounces of gold and 60,000 tons of copper left in the tailings at the old Mt. Morgan Mine site in central Queensland. Numerous other tailings projects are underway in Australia.

RECOVERY OF COPPER FROM COPPER SLAG AND COPPER SLAG ...

Copper extraction from the slag was typically found to be twice as high as that from the slag flotation tailings. Hydrogen peroxide was determined to be the best lixiviant. Thus, copper and iron extractions were 63.4% and 48.6%, respectively, when leaching the slag with 3 M H 2 O 2, after 120 minutes of reaction at room temperature. Copper dissolution was generally found to be the dominant ...

Contamination of heavy metals from mill tailings is a global problem. China’s Jinchuan Group Limited has stored approximately one billion tons of mill tailings which contain toxic levels of copper, nickel, and other metal compounds. To solve the problem, this work extended the principle of hydrometallurgical extraction to the recovery of copper/nickel from Jinchuan tailings and designed an ...

copper extraction and purification - chemguide

Extracting copper from other ores. Copper can be extracted from non-sulphide ores by a different process involving three separate stages: Reaction of the ore (over quite a long time and on a huge scale) with a dilute acid such as dilute sulphuric acid to produce a very dilute copper(II) sulphate solution. Concentration of the copper(II) sulphate solution by solvent extraction. The very dilute ...
