URANIUM METALLURGY

In the metallurgical treatment of uranium ores large tonnages must be handled. Many ores are low grade so it becomes necessary to employ systems which can be operated on a continuous basis at low cost. A vast amount of research has gone into the development of suitable processes. One is solvent extraction, which has proven

Uranium Extraction Process

The plant was originally designed to treat uranium ores with low lime-high vanadium content from the Lukachukai Mountains. The process utilized is known as the “Acid Cure” and had been developed for the most part by the AEC to increase recovery of vanadium values

How to Separate Ferrous & Non Ferrous Metals Scraps

Scrap metal, both ferrous and non-ferrous, present in industrial wastes, slags, smelter bi-products, sludges, refinery sweepings, ashes, etc., can be reclaimed in most instances at a profit and thus are made available for reuse in industry. Very substantial stockpiles of these scrap metal wastes are available

Counter Current Decantation Design Formula

The principle of Counter Current Decantation is simply that, when water or solution is to act upon solids, both are made to pass, in contact, in opposite directions, so that at each end the strongest or most potent portion of either is acting upon the weakest or most exhausted portion of the other.

The recovery of dissolved gold and silver from slime

Sink and Float Separation Process

The Sink and Float Separation Process is an alternative to the progressive depletion, during the last quarter century, of ores which could be economically treated by the old methods of gravity concentration necessitated the development of more efficient methods of concentration, the most successful and widely used of these methods

Gold Leaching

Gold Leaching Process Circuit NO. CY-1

This leach plant shows the continuous counter-current decantation system, in which all the ore is first reduced to a very fine state in the grinding mill-classifier circuit, in a Gold Leaching solution. The slime overflow of the classifier, usually 70%—200 mesh, or finer, is sent to the first thickener, known as the primary thickener.

Here the pregnant

Froth Flotation Principles

The Froth Flotation Machine is universally used for all types of flotation problems. This machine finds a wide acceptance due to its flexibility in construction, which allows the machine to be adjusted to handle pulps with divergent physical characteristics, as well as the common and intricate metallurgical problems which confront

Mineral Processing Plant Design & Construction Example

Metallurgical Recovery, which consists of the percentage of mineral saved, must not be confused with economic recovery which covers the percentage of the gross value of an ore recovered as a net profit. In other words, in commercial practice the prime object is the highest possible net profit over and above all costs. Thus a lower metallurgical recovery

Coarse and Fine Particle Flotation Recovery

Coarse and Fine Particle Flotation Recovery

In The Days of gravity concentration, the art of ore dressing developed on the cardinal principle of saving the values at as coarse a size as possible. Flowsheets were designed which featured an alternation of crushing and concentrating operations. Thus an ore might be crushed to ½ inch, jigged to yield a finished concentrate and a middling

How Recover Gold by Gravity Method & Flotation

The flotation process is now used very extensively on gold ores, not only for concentrating the values without other processes, but also in conjunction with amalgamation, gravity concentration, or cyanidation leaching, to improve recoveries
