Removal of metals from lead-zinc mine tailings using

This study investigated metals removal from lead-zinc mine tailings using bioleaching and followed by sulfide precipitation. Metals were dissolved from the tailings by the bacteria in a bioleaching reactor. During a 10% pulp density bioleaching experiment, approximately 0.82% Pb, 97.38% Zn, and 71.37% Fe were extracted after 50 days.

Removal of metals from lead-zinc mine tailings using

Oct 01, 2017 Lead-zinc tailings used for this study were collected from a lead-zinc mine plant in Shaoguan, China. Lead-zinc mine tailings were prepared by crushing and screening the material to particle sizes below 74 μm. A representative sample of the mine tailings was pulverized to conduct the chemical and mineralogical analysis.

Recycling of harmful waste lead-zinc mine tailings and fly

Apr 15, 2017 The chemical compositions of lead-zinc mine tailings and fly ash are characterized by XRF, and the results are shown in Table 1. It is noted that the lead-zinc mine tailings contain a high content of CaO (28.09 wt%) and Fe 2 O 3 (25.09 wt%) and a certain amount of SiO 2 (14.30 wt%) and Al 2 O 3 (4.52 wt%).

Mine Tailings Dean Carter Binational Center for

Mine tailings are large piles of crushed rock that are left over after the minerals of interest such us lead, zinc, copper, silver, gold, etc., have been extracted from the rocks that con- tained them. The extraction process is only partially efficient and, as a result, a percentage of the desired minerals are left behind in the mine tailings.

Natural Colonization of Plants on Five Lead/Zinc Mine

Mar 07, 2005 Mine tailings can have a specific assemblage of plant species due to their unique physicochemical properties, and this process can be important in developing ecological theory and restoration practice.
