Silver catalyzed bioleaching of low-grade copper ores ...

01/08/2007  The efficiency of the silver catalyzed bioleaching process has been demonstrated in column experiments for both the lower K-ore and the PVD ore. Additions of silver higher than 1.4 g Ag/kg Cu slightly improved the copper extraction of the lower K-ore. However, the addition of silver to an experiment started in the absence of silver considerably improved the kinetics of copper dissolution but not for iron. Conversely, the addition of silver during the course of experiments

Bioleaching process for silver recovery: Structural and ...

01/06/2018  In this work, analysis of silver manganese pulps during the bioleaching and cyanidation processes included dissolution kinetics, FTIR, morphology, and rheological tests. The dissolution kinetics revealed that manganese dissolves up to 23% at 48 h process time, allowing the exposure and liberation of silver from the mineral ore and thus increasing the extraction and diminishing the cyanide used during the cyanidation

Silver-catalyzed bioleaching of low-grade copper ores ...

01/08/2007  The activation energy of the silver-catalyzed lower K-ore bioleaching in the range of temperature studied was calculated from the kinetic constants and the semi-logarithmic plot of the Arrhenius equation. The parabolic rate constants, k, were derived from all the leaching curves obtained in the range of temperature between 15 and 45 °C.

bioleaching experiment demonstrated that the build up of the solution can negatively affect the copper extraction during the silver-catalyzed chalcopyrite process. Copper extraction from PVD ore surpassed 60% after 300 days of bioleaching using 1.24 g Ag/kg Cu. Copper extraction was substantially affected by both [Ag] and ore particle size. For the ranges between 0.25 and 1.00 g Ag/kg Cu and between
