gold leaching | carbon in leach - jxsc machine

Gold Leaching( carbon in leach) processis widely used in the newly built gold leaching plants in recent years, and a lot of plants are changing into CIL as well. GoldLeaching CIL process is suitable for the treatment of oxidized gold ore with low sulfur content and mud content. It is unsuitable for the gold ore with high-grade silver. Generally, the proportion of gold and silver should not exceed 1:5. The best conditions for CIL process in China: PH=10-12, sodium cyanide concentration is not less than 0.015%, the particle size of activated carbon is 1.0-3.35mm, the type of carbon is coconut shell activated carbon, and the slurry concentration is 40-45%. Gold Leaching Methods: flotation, carbon pulp adsorption, gravity beneficiation, and so on. These three methods of the leaching process and gold mining equipment manufacturing can be completed independently. Gravity separation and flotation are the common beneficiation methods used in gold ores, and great improvements have been made in the beneficiation technology and equipment. The mainstream gold extraction methods is generally by crusher, then comminuted by the ball mill, and then through gravity separation and flotation technology, the concentrate and tailings are extracted, chemically refined, and refined to produce gold.

Gold Leaching( carbon in leach) was developed from CIP( Carbon In Pulp), is characterized by less process flow, timesaver in the leaching process, thus reducing the production expenditure. Besides, advanced extraction technology improving the efficiency of gold extraction. The CIL production line is wider use than CIP in the mineral industry. Gold Processing Steps, Introduction of gold CIL production line: A. RAW MATERIAL PREPARATION: vibration feeder- conveyor belt- crusher -Crushing- grinding- leaching- desorption electrolysis- tailings dehydration B. LEACHING and elimination: The thickened material is leached from eight agitators; a qualified reagent is added to the first set of agitators, and the activated carbon is lifted from the last set of agitators to the second set of agitators via an airlift to resist electric currents The activated carbon from the second set of agitators is raised to a carbon screen to obtain gold-loaded carbon, and the remaining slurry is returned to the first set of agitators And then into the tailwater treatment phase. C. Tail Water Treatment: The tailings will be raised to pressure filter, filter cake known as tailings, through the belt conveyor and truck transport to the yard, filtrate into the circulating water tank for reuse. D. AURIFEROUS CARBON TREATMENT: Gold powder is obtained by batch treatment of gold-containing carbon by desorption and electrolysis equipment. The dust enters the furnace and turns to the bar. The gold-containing carbon after electrolysis can be returned to the final stage of the reprocessing flowchart.

In this study, waste silica from Alborz silica mineral processing factory was recycled as raw material for the production of a novel artificial stone to be used in civil construction. The size of the waste materials of this plant is less than 100 microns. Waste silica powder was mixed with unsaturated polymer resins as a binder. Under pressure, vibration and vacuum conditions, artificial stone with high compressive strength of 100MPa, the tensile strength of 37MPa and flexural strength of 98MPa was produced within 15min. Furthermore, in all of the produced artificial stones, due to the usage of resin, the flexural strength is higher than the tensile strength whereas, in natural stones, tensile strength is more than flexural strength. Moreover, using bentonite made a positive effect on the strength and quality of the stone, whereas kaolin declined the quality and the resistance of the artificial stone. Besides, the produced artificial stone has a lower specific gravity (2.14g/cm3) and water absorption (0.06g) than natural stone, which is one of the most prominent advantages of artificial stone. Whats more, low corrosion and were obtained against diluted sulfuric acid (0.0097g) and hydrochloric acid (0.0313g). Besides, due to the presence of impurities in the waste materials of Alborz silica factory, the produced artificial stones are brown. To reach the desired color, there are several metal oxides which could be added to the combination.

Residues generated from all industrial sectors such as industrial ashes and plastic wastes as well as particle residues are currently considered as an environmental problem. Mining and mineral processing operations provide raw materials needed for life. It is inevitable to produce environmental pollutions during such operations, since a great amount of material are left useless as waste. Nowadays, inappropriate disposal of mentioned residues is a worldwide problem. Therefore, finding a way to use such materials to produce useful supplies has great effect in environment protection [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8].

Silica particles are generated in glass production process, such as grinding, cutting, crushing and sieving operations. Thousands of tons waste silica are produced in mineral processing plants annually, which is a considerable amount. Such impurities are usually discarded in the nature and lead to several environmental hazards, due to the fact that the mentioned residual particles cannot return to the cycle of the nature even in long-term [9,10,11,13]. The effects of fine residual particles of silica factories on air quality were briefly addressed in environmental impacts. Also, these particles scratch delicate tissues in respiratory system, causing damage that impairs breathe ability and oxygen delivery to blood stream [14].

In Iran, fine and coarse silica particles are generated in huge amounts through the country. Glass industry generates thousands of tons residues per year which are disposed in huge landfills. Moreover, Qazvin which has numerous quarries made considerable amount of residues, about of 50,000 tons a year.

Indeed, numerous research works have been allocated to find scientific solutions for declining the environmental troubles of residues. For example, waste materials which have been applied for asphalt concrete pavement fabrication were mixed with cement concrete. Also these waste materials were used in production process of low strength materials, lightweight aggregates and construction materials such as red bricks [2, 14,16,17,18,19,20].

One of the useful solutions for reducing waste mining material hazards is artificial stones production. Artificial stones are compounds made up of crushed pieces of natural stones and resins [19,22,23,24,25]. Several researches have studied the process of artificial stone production. In Lee and Ko [23] studies, waste glass and stone fragments from stone slab processing were recycled as raw materials to make artificial stone slabs using vibratory compaction in a vacuum environment. The study was based on compaction pressure, vacuum condition, and vibration frequency. The results indicate that artificial stone slabs were made with high compressive strength of 148.8MPa and flexural strength of 51.1MPa. In a study conducted by Cruz [22], the process was provided for manufacturing outdoor artificial stone boards by methacrylate resin using vibro-compression under vacuum system. In this research, liquid methacrylate resin with 2002000 centipoises viscosity and 9099% content has mixed with methacrylate resin in 110% content and lower than 200 centipoises viscosities which result in high quality artificial stone. In the study of Chang et al. [21], waste stone sludge obtained from slab stone processing and waste silt from aggregate washing plants were recycled to manufacture artificial aggregate. The result showed that by mixing fine-powdered stone sludge with waste silt of larger particle size and applying vibratory compaction, the compressive strength was obtained to above 29.4MPa. A new technique on mechanical behavior of artificial and natural stones has developed by Dos Santos et al. [26] based on youngs modulus (E) and temperature from 20 to 200C. The results indicate that youngs modulus (E) of each materials determined at ambient temperature, and the engineered stones keep almost the same value of E after thermal ageing or thermal shock up to 160C. An investigation was carried out by Souza Silvaa et al. [27] for evaluating the mechanical and physical properties of produced artificial marble based on calcite marble waste and epoxy resin. The results indicated that the artificial stones exhibit a maximum flexural strength of 31.8MPa, maximum compressive strength of 85.2MPa and water absorption below 0.05%. The effects of alkali dosage, slag content and curing age on compressive strength of artificial flood-prevention stone have been evaluated by Wang et al. [28]. The results showed that the specimen made from optimal mix proportion can meet the requirement of flood-prevention stone and the main product in alkali-activated process is CSH gel. In a research conducted by Peng and Qin [29], the mechanical behavior and microstructure of artificial stone was studied. Based on their results, artificial stone slabs obtained in this work has high compressive and flexural strengths of 170.9 and 73.5MPa under a compaction time of 3min and a curing time of 60min.

As a matter of fact, the practical possibility of using artificial stone instead of natural one is based on the technical advantages, such as the lower density of the polymeric resin (~1g/cm3) in comparison with the natural stone (~2g/cm3), which makes the artificial stone significantly lighter. Another advantage of artificial stones is lower amount of pores and flaws. Whereas, high porosity and microstructural defects in natural ornamental stones lead to contamination and brittleness, since outside fluids can penetrate to natural stone through pores and propagate cracks. Despite abovementioned positive points of artificial stones, it should be noted that some of them are not resistant enough in high traffic areas, as the materials are vulnerable to abrasion [11, 30, 31].

This work is an investigation on the production of artificial stone by waste silica from residue industrial materials. As a novelty, it is the first time that the size of the residues is less than 100 microns and silica has got impurities. These impurities are difficult to separate from waste materials whereas they are fruitful to increase artificial stone strength. As these impurities cause several environmental problems in the region, this is an appropriate way to abolish them. The main objective of this work is to produce a novel product using process techniques of vibration, vacuum and pressing, which has superior mechanical and physical properties as well as resistance to chemical reactions. Therefore, the production of artificial stone using impure silica declines environmental pollution and also economizes the production process in civil construction applications.

Also, a high purity silica sample (purity over 99.9%) with size of 100 micron were used to consider the effect of super pure silica on produced artificial stone. Moreover, orthophthalic unsaturated polymer resins were used as a binder. Figure1 show the structure of orthophthalic unsaturated resin. Sulfuric acid and hydrochloric acid with 10% concentration were used in this experiment. Cobalt (12%) and Methyl Ethyl Ketone Peroxide (2%) were also added to the resin as resin hardeners. Bentonite and kaolinite (Lushan mine in Iran) were used to evaluate the quality of artificial stone. After finding best powder-resin ratio, bentonite and kaolin were used to consider which better filler is.

First, waste materials were sieved and fine particles smaller than 100 microns used for experiments. Then, orthophthalic unsaturated polymer resins added as a binder. For primary tests, 3 distinct mixtures with different powder-resin ratio have tested.

The mixture is mixed to obtain homogeneous material. Incomplete mixing of materials and resins makes inhomogeneous mixture. Moreover, a complete mixing accelerates polymerization reaction and accordingly increases the strength of artificial stone. It should be noted that, mixing time is extremely crucial since resin is hardened in short period of time. Therefore, production process should be done very quickly. After finding best powder to resin ratio, bentonite and kaolin (3%3min) were used to investigate which filler is better. Then, vibration press machine used in vacuum condition. The mixture is placed in a steel vessel and allowed to vibrate in 50Hz for 3min. In this machine, obtained paste became completely homogeneous, and air inside particles has released. After vibration stage, material has immediately pressed by 3 tons in 4min until the block of artificial stone got the mold shape. In fact, Operation time for mixing, vibration and pressure should be less than 15min, since resin is hardened within 15min. In next stage, the block is heated at temperature of 90C for 55min to complete polymerization process of resin to reach final strength of the artificial stone as well as releasing moisture. Then, blocks has kept in a desiccator jar to return room temperature, around 22C.

Criterion of determining best composition is maximum compressive and flexural strength. In this regard, compressive, tensile and flexural strength experiments have been done based on ASTM C39, ASTM C496 and ASTM C78 standards, respectively. Specific gravityis the ratio of the weight of a given volume of materials, including permeable and impermeable voids in the particles, to the weight of an equal volume of water. The specific gravity and water absorption of the novel artificial stone were measured according to ASTM C642 standard. The resistance to chemical attack has conducted according to the Brazilian NBR 15845 standard. After being subjected to the chemical attack for 24h of specific reagents, the specimens had corresponding weight loss determined. Moreover, the pore size has studied from the desorption branch of the isotherm using DFT method (Quanta chrome Instruments, 19942006).

One of the most important factors in production process of artificial stone is powder-resin ratio. For testing different compositions, the content ratio of powder was increased from 70 to 85%. Table2 and Fig.2 show the average compressive, tensile and flexural strength of artificial stone in 10 samples with powder/resin ratios of 70/30, 80/20 and 85/15 in same experimental condition. The results show that maximum compressive, tensile and flexural strength were obtained in 80/20 powder/resin ratio. Figure3 shows manufactured artificial stone with a powder/resin ratio of 80/20 and 85/15. According to Figs.2 and 3, artificial stone with powder/resin ratio of 80/20 has maximum strength, because of lower porosity in this ratio, also increasing powder amount (over 80%) makes brittle compound which may burst in loading operation. Pore size distributions in different powder/resin ratio (70/30, 80/20 and 85/15) are shown in Fig.4. Pores diameter is between 315 and 310 microns in 70/30 and 85/15 powder/cement ratio respectively. Pore size has decreased to 38 microns in 80/20 ratio. So pore size distribution has got broader in more and less ratio of 80/20.

Resin additives or resin hardeners include cobalt and methyl ethyl ketone peroxide. The process of hardening and polymerization cannot be done without these materials. These additives and resin are complementary and they are not added to the resin before its consumption to prevent early hardening. The process of mixing resins and hardeners should be done very well to reach a homogenous mixture because it spreads hardener particles throughout the mixture and consequently, polymerization would accelerate. In above mentioned conditions artificial stone would reach higher resistance. If resin does not mix well with hardeners, the mixture will not be homogeneous, the reaction between resin and hardener will not be done well and the hardening procedure will perform very slowly or not at all.

Figure5 shows the difference between compressive strength, flexural strength and tensile strength of artificial stones with different compounds. As is seen, higher compressive strength is obtained in 80/20 powder/resin ratios, using 3% bentonite and 50Hz vibration. After vibratory compaction, artificial aggregate packing improved and reached a more compacted structure with higher compressive strength. It seems that compressive strengths, regardless of groups, tended to increase with 3% bentonite; while it descended by pure silica. Pure silica does not have positive effect and decrease artificial stone strength. Figure6 shows artificial stones containing kaolin and bentonite. Applying bentonite makes positive effect on stone quality, while kaolin has opposite result. Bentonite component significantly affects properties of artificial stone, and hence is of importance in construction engineering. Important properties of bentonite include water absorption and swelling, viscosity and thixotropy of aqueous suspensions, colloidal and waterproofing properties, binding and surface properties (properties and uses of Bentonite, [32]). Thus, bentonite increases compressive, tensile and flexural strength of stone without affecting the color and other characteristics of artificial stone. On the other hand, kaolinite does not have positive effect on artificial stones properties. The reason is kaolins properties such as soft consistency and earthy texture. Also, it is easily broken and can be molded or shaped, especially when wet [33].

In whole produced artificial stones, because of resin and plastic properties, flexural strength is higher than tensile strength whilst natural stones do not resistant against bending and tensile strength is more than flexural strength. The values of the compressive, tensile and flexural strength of quartz natural stone are obtained 25, 19 and 16MPa, respectively which is lower than the values in the artificial stone.

According to Fig.5, impurities in primary waste materials which contain 96% silica and various impurities are desirable and increase the quality and strength of artificial stone. After vibratory compaction, the artificial aggregate packing at each ratio distinctly improved and reached a more compacted structure with higher compressive strength.

Prevent tailing production in purification process. Given that all raw materials are used without any purification, the process of producing artificial stones produces low amount of tailings and this is one of the most important results achieved in this research.

It is generally agreed that temperature is crucial factor in mechanical properties of artificial stone. Figure7 shows compressive, tensile and flexural strength of artificial stone with 3% bentonite at different temperatures. Maximum compressive strength (110MPa) has obtained at 90C. This parameter has decreased slightly in more and less temperatures. At temperatures more than 90C, the stone is baked more that reduces compressive strength below 50MPa. At temperatures lower than 90C, setting process would not be done well which decrease stone quality. Figure8 shows produced artificial stones at 130C with compressive strength of 45MPa. It is perceived that artificial stones behave more like an elasticplastic material in comparison to more brittle/elastic behavior of natural stones. By increasing temperature, the polymerresin matrix starts contributing with its rheological behavior to mechanical properties of composites.

Table4 shows specific gravity, porosity and water absorption values. It is observed that produced artificial stone has lower specific gravity, which is one of the most prominent advantages of artificial stones properties. Specific gravity of natural granite is 2.7g/cm3 that is almost 30% heavier than artificial stones, while specific gravity of artificial stone in present study is 2.14g/cm3. Binder used in this study is an unsaturated polymer resin which has viscous behavior. On the other hand, once the structure compacted, the air trapped between aggregates during mixing cannot be easily removed. Air can only be eliminated when compaction is conducted in a vacuum condition. Removing air leads to a lower porosity in production process of artificial stone. So, there are fewer discernible pores in densified structure formed under the vibration of 50Hz which has compressive strength of 110.12MPa.

According to Table4 water absorption of 0.06% gained by this method is significantly lower than other methods. High water absorption of 0.25% and 0.38% reported by Borselino et al. and Carvalho et al., respectively. One of the reason is that the porosity of this method is lower than other methods [34, 35]. A possible explanation is that this artificial stone can be sealed with low water absorption.

The produced artificial stone is brown due to the presence of impurities in waste powders of Alborz silica factory. For various colors, it is necessary to add various metal oxides such as titanium oxide, chromium oxide, copper oxide, zirconium oxide and so on. Figure9 shows the artificial stones with 3% titanium oxide content with white color. Metal oxides are used up to 3wt% depending on the quality of silica powder in mixture. Table5 shows the effect of metal oxides on artificial stone strength. Based on conducted experiment, using metal oxides does not make a significant impact on strength of artificial stone. So, they can be used for dying the stone for specific usage. It is interesting that titanium oxide gives white color, combination of titanium oxide and copper oxide makes the artificial stone red and zirconium oxide is a great agent for giving cream color to artificial stone.

The sample with powder/resin ratio of 80/20 along with bentonite additive has been used for acid test. First, artificial stone has weighted accurately, and then it is placed within a dilute acid (Sulfuric acid 10%) for 24h. It makes an opportunity to investigate whether artificial stone is resistant enough against corrosion or not. Artificial stone has weighed after being dried. The difference between initial weight (before being placed in the dilute acid) and final weight (after being dried) indicates the degree of corrosion. The corrosion rate was 0.2%0.03. It is less than corrosion in natural stones (5%) in same condition. So, the results reveal that produced artificial stone is resistant enough against dilute acid. In other words, weight reduction is very low and the corrosion is ignorable.

The same procedure has been done to assay the resistance of the produced artificial stone against another dilute acid (hydrochloric acid 10%). The average corrosion rate for 10 samples was 0.65%0.03. It is higher than the amount of corrosion in sulfuric acid test but lower than the corrosion in natural stones (7%) in same condition. Considering the results, Hydrochloric acid causes more corrosion in the artificial stone than Sulfuric acid. So it is better to use this kind of artificial stones where it is less likely to contact with Hydrochloric acid.

In this research paper, artificial stone production using waste material from Alborz silica mineral processing factory has investigated to find the most optimum method of mass production. The maximum compressive strength of artificial stone (110MPa) obtained in 80/20 powder/resin aggregate ratios, using 3% bentonite at 90C while the strength has decreased slightly in other combination. Thus, bentonite increases the strength of the artificial stone without affecting the color and other characteristics. Besides, produced artificial stone has lower specific gravity (2.14g/cm3) and water absorption (0.06g), which are prominent advantages of artificial stone. To have desired color, there are several metal oxides which can be added to the combination. The results showed that using metal oxides does not make a significant effect on artificial stone strength. Also, the corrosion rate using Sulfuric acid and Hydrochloric acid (10%) is 0.2%0.03 and 0.65%0.03, respectively. It is less than corrosion amount in natural stones (5% and 7%) in same condition. Moreover, artificial stone production costs 30 $ per square meter, while natural quartz is 50 $ per square meter. So, this artificial stone has a good quality and can be used in civil construction.

Get Solutions Name:* Email:* Phone Message:* Calcium Carbonate Manufacturing Process At first, the raw materials, such as limestone, calcite and marble are mined from the quarry. Then these raw material slumps are carefully selected, washed to ensure the high quality of finished calcium carbonate powder. And then these dried and cleaned raw materials will go through first and secondary crusher, such as jaw crusher and hammer crusher, to become the required feed sizes. At this time, these materials are ready for further grinding. Firstly, the raw material is put into feed silo, from which raw material is transported to the ball mill through vibrating feeding device. In the ball mill, with the impact of media balls, these raw materials are ground to fine calcium carbonate powder. And then the materials from the ball mill will be blown through classifier. The required fine ground calcium carbonate powder will be delivered to the product silo, while the coarser material will be returned to ball mill for regrinding. And the final product will be packed and stored for usage. Of course, except the core machine such as grinding mill, classifier, there are also other transporting system, dust collector system, and packing systems. Besides, the whole calcium carbonate production process can be fully automatic and be controlled by operation panel. Calcium Carbonate Production Process Get Solutions Name:* Email:* Phone Message:* Application of Calcium Carbonate Powder Due to its special properties, ground calcium carbonate powder can be used in many areas. For example, the calcium carbonate powder are usually applied in paper, construction, paint, plastic, glass and other industries as filler, adhesives and so on.

graphite mining | processing equipment | flow chart | cases - jxsc

Description Pure graphite is a mineral form of the element carbon (element #6, symbol C). It forms as veins and disseminations in metamorphic rocks as the result of the metamorphism of organic material included in limestone deposits. It is an extremely soft mineral and it breaks into minute, flexible flakes that easily slide over one another. This feature accounts for graphites distinctive greasy feel. This greasy characteristic makes graphite a good lubricant. Because it is a solid material, it is known as a dry lubricant. This is useful in applications where wet lubricants, such as oil, cannot be used. Graphite is the only non-metal element that is a good conductor of electricity. Natural graphite is used mostly in what are called refractory applications. Refractory applications are those that involve extremely high heat and therefore demand materials that will not melt or disintegrate under such extreme conditions. One example of this use is in the crucibles used in the steel industry. Such refractory applications account for the majority of the usage of graphite.

From 1890 to 1920, underground mining of graphite was practiced in New York and Pennsylvania. From 1942 until the end of World War II, only open-pit methods were used, because working weathered rock was relatively easy. Graphite was mined underground at Dillon, Montana, during World War II, but shortly thereafter mining ceased because it was too costly to compete with Sri Lankan graphite.

Madagascar operations are entirely open pit, but in Bavaria, Korea, Mexico, and Sri Lanka, because of the depth and physical characteristics of the deposits, underground mining is practiced. Mexican underground mining operations are 100400 m below the surface, measured on the angle of the vein. Some of the older mines in Sri Lanka reached depths in excess of 450 m on a vertical plane. For many years, mining operations in Sri Lanka were primitive and ore extraction was slow and cumbersome. The mines were mechanized after World War II.

Madagascar operations also were primitive because low labor costs prohibited mechanization. After 1938 the mines began to use mechanical equipment to remove the overburden, and bulldozers and tractors easily removed the graphite-bearing schists.

Worldwide demand for graphite steadily increased throughout 2012 and into 2013. This increase resulted from the improvement of global economic conditions and its impact on industries that use graphite.

Principal import sources of natural graphite were, in descending order of tonnage, China, Mexico, Canada, Brazil, and Madagascar, which combined accounted for 97% of the tonnage and 90% of the value of total imports. Mexico and Vietnam provided all the amorphous graphite, and Sri Lanka provided all the lump and chippy dust variety. China, Canada, and Madagascar were, in descending order of tonnage, the major suppliers of crystalline flake and flake dust graphite.

During 2013, China produced the majority of the worlds graphite. Graphite production increased in China, Madagascar, and Sri Lanka from that of 2012, while production decreased in Brazil from 2012 production levels.

Uses Because graphite flakes slip over one another, giving it its greasy feel, graphite has long been used as a lubricant in applications where wet lubricants, such as oil, can not be used. Technological changes are reducing the need for this application.

Natural graphite is used mostly in what are called refractory applications. Refractory applications are those that involve extremely high heat and therefore demand materials that will not melt or disintegrate under such extreme conditions. One example of this use is in the crucibles used in the steel industry. Such refractory applications account for the majority of the usage of graphite.
