Mar 13, 2013 · (i) Iron by-product metals: rare Earth elements. In 2010, almost 50 per cent of REEs were produced as by-products of iron ores, mainly in Bayan Obo mines (China). Iron mineral ores in that mine contain 350 kg of iron, 60 kg of rare Earth oxides and 1.3 kg of niobium . In 2010, 54 000 tonnes of the rare Earth metals were produced from Bayan Obo

Some preliminary results on the secondary leaching of previously heap leached gold ore are presented. Alternative lixiviants for gold comprising chlorine, thiourea and thiosulphate were compared with cyanide using bottle roll tests. Chlorine was subsequently selected for column leaching tests. Column tests at 1.0, 0.1 and 0.01 gL-1 Cl2 at pH 2 were conducted

The solution is drawn off and filtered at intervals, and gold is precipitated in the filtrate by metallic zinc. This can give 97% recovery, an excellent result. There is also a chlorine process, where the gold dissolves as AuCl 2-ion when chlorine is bubbled through the ore. Open-heap cyanidation is much less hazardous than would be imagined
