However some slags may contain remnant minerals that can be a potential source of metal release to the environment Acid rock drainage from waste rock Although the character of waste rock varies with the type of ore many waste rocks contain sulfide minerals associated with metals such as lead zinc copper silver or cadmium
Then the copper-bearing liquid is combined with another acid to precipitate the copper from the organic material Another process called electrowinning uses electricity to extract copper out of the PLS onto thin metal sheets The remaining liquid is known as raffinate a waste product Raffinate can contain concentrated amounts of TENORM
why minerals are mined and processed to extract metals Home / art of treating crude ores and mineral products in order to separate the valuable minerals from the waste rock or gangue It is the first process that most ores undergo after mining in order to provide a more concentrated material for the procedures of extractive metallurgy
This process is necessary because platinum even in ore needs to be removed from other substances Platinum is an incredibly rare metal that is mined and extracted in a variety of different ways depending on the technological sophistication of the miners attempting to extract it
Metals and fossil fuels the treasures buried deep in the rocks! Some of the materials hidden in Earth's crust are extremely useful to human beings People dig hundreds even thousands of feet (or meters) underground to find them They include metals like gold iron and aluminum along with fossil fuels like coal oil and natural gas
Metals are often found as compounds in ores An ore is a rock or mineral that has enough metal in it to make it worth extracting Mining copper About 200 years ago the UK was an important world source of copper and tin and there were mines in Cornwall and Devon
Mar 13 2018You can't actually melt gold from rocks if you hold a rock over a flame hot enough to melt gold and expect the gold to dribble out you're going to be disappointed The process of extracting gold from ore is a multistep one and historically it has involved the use of some dangerous chemicals including cyanide and mercury
