Modern plants using good industrial practices should target on meeting releases for total dust of kg/t copper and a discharge for SO2 of 25 kg/t copper. The double contact double absorption plant. flotation recovery of the very fine particles of copper sulphides (Bulatovic and Salter, ), gold, uranium oxide and pyrite fines (Stassen ; Valderrama and Rubio, ), oxidized copper ores and copper and molybdenum sulphides (Rubio et al., ) and nickel ore (Chen et al., ). It is appear that this process is now. A new reagent system, developed by Versitech, Inc., with assistance from DOE's Inventions and Innovation Program, recovers copper minerals at a much lower pH than conventional reagents and avoids floating pyrite. The process reduces or even eliminates both the lime used in copper flotation and the accompanying carbon dioxide.

Xinhai Solutions: Xinhai Mine Research Institute carried on preliminary exploration of its processing conditions and found that the copper recovery rate was the highest in bulk flotation process. Therefore, after discussed with client, Xinhai adopted two stage closed-circuit crushing, one stage closed-circuit grinding, middlings regrinding, copper lead bulk flotation - zinc flotation - copper.   1.

In , about 60 percent of primary copper produced in the United States originated from flotation (Daniel E. Edelstein, Copper Commodity Specialist, U.S. Geological Survey, written commun., Ma ). knowledge. Traditional flotation cells achieve good recovery across a range of µm, but recovery will start to drop below 40µm or above µm. In certain special applications, normal flotation can recover particles even up to µm in size, but with lower recovery. Rinne advises that the target of coarse flotation should be in.

A study of the recovery of copper, cobalt, nickel and zinc from copper converter slag by roasting with ferric sulphate is reported. Roasting of converter slag with ferric sulphate, followed by leaching with water, was carried out in order to bring the metal values into solution.

For copper and cobalt recovery from copper slags, a binary mixture primarily formed by taking pyrite/slag ratio. The mixture of slag/pyrite which is % of Cu and % of Co was subjected to roasting at high temperatures in a closed medium for 2 hours and then roasted at air atmosphere at oC at different times.

slag followed by milling and flotation, are inappropriate for cobalt recovery from converter slag [7−8]. Recently, hydrometallurgical processes for cobalt recovery from slag by selective leaching of metal values were reported [9−12].

For low content of cobalt in converter slag, however, plentiful slag is put through the entire process. and the other three models also gave good fit to the data for copper recovery as affected by pH of pulp in flotation process (Fig.

2) the X-max calculated from the quadratic equation show that pH of the pulp will result in maximum recovery, however, the two straight lines model show that pH of is the joining point with the highest. Abstract: The recovery of copper from smeltery furnace slag by flotation has been studied.

By analysis the slag containing % copper and g/t silver is available to recovery. The effective factors such as particle size, the amount and type of collector were examined. Copper smelting slags are hard materials. Therefore,to recover their copper by flotation method, grinding should be carried out to obtain optimal particle size.

Copper smelting slags in the Bardeskan district, with work index of kwh/st, were grinded for 65 minutes to reach an acceptable degree of freedom for the flotation tests, with particle size of 80%, smaller than 70 μm.

A flotation process in which copper ores or copper converter slags are ground and firstly have added thereto benzotriazole or alkyl benzotriazole as an activator and secondly one or more collectors selected from the group consisting of xanthates, dithiophosphates, thiocarbamate esters, dithiocarbamates, mercaptans and dixanthogens and further, if desired, a promoter such as kerosene, light oil.

A study on the recovery of copper, cobalt, and zinc from copper smelter and converter slags by roasting with sulfuric acid has been conducted. Acid roasting of slags followed by hot water leaching was carried out to bring the metal values into solution.

The slags cannot be discarded due to the high content of copper and hence they are sent to a milling and flotation plant (Slag Mill Plant) for liberation and recovery of copper.

The slag from the furnaces are rapidly cooled by means of granulation with water, therefore copper minerals tend to be trapped in solid gangue phases. Copper recovery from the secondary copper slag by the flotation method is an alternate route. The partial enrichment of Sn and Ni is also possible by this method.

Obtaining high recovery in copper flotation plants has been always under investigation in recent years. Misreported copper into tailing dramatically declines copper recovery. This study aims to find the possible reasons of copper loss to tailing and present the methods to improve the performance of the Sarcheshmeh copper plant flotation circuit.
