Innovations In Copper Mining amp Extraction Producing
An associated process is biooxidation. this is the oxidation of sulfide minerals associated with but not necessarily part of the mineral of interest to be extracted. bioleaching is used today in commercial operations to process ores of copper, nickel, cobalt, zinc and uranium, whereas, biooxidation is used in gold processing and coal.Copper ores 0.2-6.0 copper ore, other minerals, waste rock0.2-6.0 (gangue) copper minerals,b iron and other metallic0.5-6.0 pyrites, byproducts, andgangue solution of copper and leaching agent20-50 (water orhao.) copper, iron (0.2-2.00/0), trace amounts of85-90 silica and aluminum oxides, and oxygen organic solvent and pregnantieachate;.
