  Remote, low-grade deposits of platinum group metals (PGMs) can be economically recovered using novel direct leaching approaches, doing away with the need for . Advanced materials are crucial for technological applications, coexisting with an increasing scarcity of natural resources. This Special Issue, "Sustainable Utilization of Metals - Processing, Recovery and Recycling", is dedicated to the latest scientific achievements in efficient production of metals, purposing a sustainable resource use. Recovery of precious metals from electronic scrap by hydrometallurgical processing requires cyanidation and solvent extraction. As in primary gold production, cyanide dissolves the precious metals. The metal-bearing liquid is then separated from the barren phase, and the pregnant liquor is contacted with zinc metal (cementation) to precipitate the precious metals. 1. Introduction. Biohydrometallurgy holds illustrious gravity in metallurgy and minerals processing field for the development of ecologically acceptable and economically viable process for the recovery and utilization of base, precious, and strategic metals from low-grade ores, mining wastes, and : Ravichandran Rathna, Ekambaram Nakkeeran.

of valuable metals from low-grade ores and minerals as well as for the beneficiation of minerals or the recovery of metals from secondary resources such as waste pr oducts. Generally, aerobic. Recovery of silver and silver recycling is accomplished using various methods, including the Parkes process, cupellation, parting, slag fuming, and electrolysis (electrorefining and electrowinning). Silver is most often recovered from low-grade mineral ores, with less than 2% silver content. Commercial Processes for the Extraction of Platinum Group Metals (PGMs) processing from low-grade resources using relation to their potential applicability in the precious metals recovery. Dear Colleagues, We are happy to announce that a Special Issue of Metals (ISSN , impact factor ) on “Critical Raw Materials Recovery through Bio/Hydrometallurgy from Secondary Resources” will be published in Articles that deal with secondary resources (including, but not limited to, critical raw materials, technology critical elements, rare earth elements, and precious.

For example, heavy metal-contaminated soils may be cleaned up in this way, but waste rock, contaminated land or low-grade ore, may also be the sources. The recovery of the “f-block elements” comprising the 4f series (the lanthanides, cerium to lutetium) and the 5f series (the actinides, thorium to lawrencium) represents a special : $ RECOVERY OF PRECIOUS METALS FROM ELECTRONIC SCRAP by R. O. Dannenberg,1 J. M. Maurice,2 and G. M. Potter3 ABSTRACT The Bureau of Mines investigations described in this report were under­ taken to devise a process to economically recover precious metals and copper. Prior to flotation, the nickel-copper alloy, which contains over 95 per cent of the precious metals, is isolated by magnetic separation and sent for the recovery of precious metals. The copper sulphide concentrate produced by flotation contains about 70 per cent Cu, 5 per cent Ni, and 20 per cent S and is sent to the copper circuit. This invention relates to an energy efficient process for recovering Base Metals and Precious Metals from ore or concentrate, the process including the steps of constructing a heap (10) comprising ore and/or concentrate containing Base Metals and Precious Metals, and leaching and removing Base Metals by inoculating the heap with inocula of thermophilic bacteria and archaea and bioleaching the Cited by: 5.
