About 2.5 million tonnes of copper smelter slag are available in Küre, northern part of Turkey. This slag contains large amounts of metallic values such as copper and cobalt. A representative slag sample containing 0.98% Cu, 0.49% Co and 51.47% Fe was used in the experimental studies. Two different methods, direct acid leaching and acid baking followed by hot water leaching were used for recovering Cu and Co from the slag. The effects of leaching time, temperature and acid concentration on Cu…

Recovery of metal values from copper slags by flotation and roasting with pyrite
The recovery of copper and cobalt from ancient copper slags from the Küre region of Turkey was investigated. A fayalitic-type of ancient copper slag containing 1.24% Cu, 0.53% Co and 53.16% Fe were
Recovery of Cobalt, Copper and Zinc from Küre-Kastamonu Historical Copper Slag by High Pressure Oxidative Acid Leaching
Copper slags are solid by-products formed during the copper production process by pyrometallurgical method from sulfide copper ores. These slags usually contain significant quantities of valuable
Recovery of Copper from the Slag of Khatoonabad Flash Smelting Furnace by Flotation Method
Copper loss in the slag of Khatoonabad flash smelting furnace is estimated to be about 1–3 %. At present, the electric slag cleaning furnace is used for the recovery of copper from slag. However, due
Evaluation of sulfuric acid baking and leaching of enargite concentrates
Over the last fifty years, the treatment of enargite concentrates has not received much attention, primarily because of the availability of other clean concentrates suitable for processing with
