A new leaching system ([EMIm]HSO 4-K 2 Cr 2 O 7 aqueous solution) was developed for chalcopyrite leaching.. Optimum chemical conditions for chalcopyrite leaching were systematically examined. • A high copper extraction yield of 90.2% was achieved within 90 min under the optimized conditions.
Jul 01, 2017 The copper extraction and pH changes are shown in Fig. 9. It can be seen that the rate of initial copper extraction, after pre-oxidation, is quite rapid after which there is a change in rate due to iron hydroxide precipitate on the chalcopyrite surface.

About 3/4 th of Copper (Cu) produced in the world has come from Chalcopyrite (CuFeS 2), but it is the lowest standard ore of Copper. The method used to extract copper from its ores depends on the nature of the ore. Sulphide ores such as chalcopyrite are converted to copper by a different method from silicate, carbonate or sulphate ores.
What is claimed is: 1. A process for the extraction of copper from copper containing minerals such as chalcopyrite and bornite comprising the steps of: comminuting the concentrate, having a particle size of at least 40 μm, in a conventional attrition grinder and in the presence of a liquid dispersing agent, selected from the class consisting of ammonium hydroxide, potassium hydroxide and ...
Three of the processes introduced above have made great strides in solving these problems for the extraction of copper from chalcopyrite: 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.
Extraction of copper from sufidic ores, either by pyrometallurgy or hydrometallurgy, has various limitations. In this study, a solvometallurgical process for the extraction of copper from sulfidic ore minerals (chalcopyrite, bornite, chalcocite and digenite) was developed by using an organic lixiviant (FeCl 3 as oxidizing agent and ethylene glycol (EG) as organic solvent).
In the case of copper, it is worth extracting when there is about 2 kg of copper per 1,000 kg of ore (0.2%). Copper minerals are found in over one hundred varieties, although only a few have been worked for copper on a large scale. The most abundant ores are chalcopyrite and bornite, which contain both copper and iron sulphides.
A process for extracting copper from a copper-containing concentrate by comminuting the concentrate in the presence of a liquid dispersing agent which inhibits agglomeration and forms a pulp, and...
Aug 26, 2021 The copper (II) ion in the chalcopyrite is reduced to copper (I) sulfide which is reduced further to copper metal in the final stages. The iron in the chalcopyrite ends up converted into an iron (II) silicate slag which is removed. Most of the sulfur in the chalcopyrite turns to sulfur dioxide gas.
