  • The influence of micro-cracks on copper extraction by

    01.01.2020· According to the fitting equations, the bioleaching time for achieving 90% of copper extraction can be calculated: 73.3 days and 83.9 days for high-pressure grinding rolls and jaw crusher, respectively. This result reveals that creating more and larger micro-cracks in the ore particles could shorten the duration of bioleaching process.

  • Application of bioleaching to copper mining in Chile

    Bioleaching of copper has occurred naturally since many centuries ago. Indications exist that during the Roman Empire copper was recovered from acidic waters. It seems that the first large-scale utilization of bioleached copper occurred in Río Tinto, Spain, back in the XVIII century.

    22.02.2018· While in bioleaching of PCBs, the copper was easily chemically leached by Fe 3+, and the addition of bacteria might not significantly increase the dissolution rate of copper. Instead, the rate of biooxidation was inhibited because of the toxicity of PCBs. Therefore, the strategy which separated the process of bacterial oxidation from bioleaching of PCBs might be a good choice.

  • Bioleaching: Introduction, Methods, Application, Copper

    To have an idea of bioleaching process copper leaching by bacteria is described as an example. Covellite, chalcocite and chalcopyrite are generally used as copper ores for bioleaching processes. Apart from containing copper, the ores also contain other elements like iron, zinc and sulphur. For example Chalcopyrite contains 26% copper, 25.9% iron, 20.5% zinc and 33% sulphur.

  • Bioleaching of Copper SpringerLink

    Natural bioleaching has been taking place for almost as long as the history of the world, but it is only in the last few decades that we have realized that bioleaching is responsible for acid production in some mining wastes, and that this bacterial activity can be used to liberate some metals. The application of the bioleaching reaction for copper has been exploited and used to develop

  • Application of bioleaching to copper mining in Chile

    Early application of bioleaching to copper mining centred in its recovery from dumps (Gentina and Acevedo, 1985; Acevedo, 2002). This is a low technology process and renders low productivities and recoveries. Nevertheless, dump bioleaching is economical, mainly because it recovers copper otherwise wasted with very modest investment and operation costs. A step in the direction of using a

    The GEOCOAT™ Process A heap leaching process that is capable of bioleaching copper concentrates. It does this by coating the concentrate slurry onto a support rock, or substrate material, and stacking this coated material in a bioxidation heap. The support rock itself may be a low-grade copper ore. The ratio of support rock to concentrate is in the range of 5:1 to 10:1 by weight. The heap is inoculated with

  • Solvent extraction of copper and zinc from bioleaching

    The solvent extraction of copper and zinc from the bioleaching solutions of low-grade sulfide ores with LIX984 and D2EHPA was investigated. The influences of extractant content, aqueous pH value, phase ratio and equilibration time on metals extraction were studied. The results show that LIX984 has a higher selectivity for copper than for iron, zinc and other metals, and has the copper
