Quantitative Leaching of a Nigerian Iron Ore in Hydrochloric Acid

  title={Quantitative Leaching of a Nigerian Iron Ore in Hydrochloric Acid},
  author={Alafara A. Baba},
A study on the quantitative leaching of iron ore in hydrochloric acid solution has been undertaken. The elemental composition of the iron ore was also carried out using ICP-MS technique. The major elements in the iron ore include: Fe(66.7%); Al (0.2%); Si (5.2%); Ti (0.02%) and O (28.0%). Some traces of V, Ni, Zn, Ce, Cr, La, Y and Zr were also found. The effects of contact time, acid concentration, temperature, particle size and, the stirring speed on the dissolution of the iron ore have been… CONTINUE READING
