Chalcopyrite Leaching Metallurgist & Mineral Processing

Leaching Chalcopyrite is the holy grail for hydrometallurgists (Leachers), difficult to leach as the sulfur forms a layer over the mineral and makes the leaching slow. Having said that, it is not not leachable, not unusual for ore dumps (low grade) containing chalcopyrite to be placed under leach but report low recovery +/30% TCu over several years and the rate is around 0.51% per month

Integrated piloting of a thermophilic bioleaching process

Bioleaching of the primary copper sulphide, chalcopyrite, has presented more of a challenge, since the surface of the chalcopyrite tends to passivate at the temperatures and redox potentials found in typical mesophilic bioleach processes, effectively stopping the leaching of the mineral. This behaviour can be overcome by a variety of approaches

Chalcopyrite ores are too lowgrade for traditional heatbased extraction techniques such as smelting, but they also present a challenge for biomining, because chalcopyrite is fairly resistant to oxidation by ferric iron. It''s very rare for a new ore body to be found that contains a lot of metal. Barrie Johnson

How to Separate Gold from Pyrite

In panning large samples, only one or two specks of gold could be seen, although the ore contained from 1 to 2 ounces per ton. This ore yielded only about 40 per cent, on being amalgamated, but over 90 per cent, was dissolved out by leaching the raw ore with cyanide of potassium, and similar results were obtained by chlorination.
