SO2 Manufacturing Process – Sulfur Burning Plant

The SO2 Manufacturing Process is “simple”, all you need is a sulfur burning plant. The flowsheet represent what you need for a sulfur burning system to produce SO2.  The manufacturing of 1 metric tonne per day of SO2 requires a sulfur-burning SO2 plant capable of smoking-up around 46 lb/hr

Arsenopyrite Gold Recovery

Having some arsenopyrite in your gold ore sample does not insure a full refractory gold processes is needed for recovery.  The presence of arsenopyrite and heavy sulphides just tells a component of fraction of the gold extraction process might have a refractory response.

Copper Precipitation & Cementation using Scrap Iron

copper cementation process Copper Cementation Cone

In the search for lower cost methods of recovering copper, the use of sponge iron or particulate iron (as distinguished from iron powder used in powder metallurgy) as precipitants in place of tin cans, detinned scrap iron, or scrap iron is an intriguing possibility. The relatively faster copper

Gold & Copper Bioleaching

Bacterial Leaching of Copper Ores

Several types of bacteria capable of living in an acid environment have been isolated from copper mine waters. The foremost of these are of the genus Thiobacillus (T.). Thiobacillus bacteria are acidophilic aerobic chemolithotrophs which grow most rapidly at a pH in the range of 2-3. T. ferrooxidans derive their energy by oxidizing ferrous iron,
