matte smelting-leaching (4). Because of long processing times en countered with conventional treatment of PGM sulfide concentrates and the ultimate probable dependence on a foreign smelter and refinery to produce the platinum group metals, alternative processing of Stillwater Complex concentrates is
The end product is a silver concentrate, a by-product which is sold to external customers or turned into pure silver at Bolidens own smelters. A new business model for nickel was introduced in Harjavalta in 2015, in which Boliden sells nickel matte to external customers.
The smelter employs approximately 800 people. The smelter is one of only a few in the world that can treat complex copper concentrates. Blister copper and sulphuric acid are smelter products. The blister copper is delivered to refineries in Europe and Asia for final processing to copper metal.
Concentrates shipped to the smelter usually contain 70 to 75 percent tin metal. On the other hand, the complex sulfide ores found in underground deposits, such as those of Bolivia, require more complicated mineral processing, often involving froth flotation, in order to produce a clean tin concentrate. Even then, Bolivian concentrates may ...
Chanderiya Lead-Zinc Smelter (CLZS) is one of the largest zinc-lead smelting complexes in the world.

Jan 01, 2019 The smelter was built in the early 1960s to treat concentrate from the nearby Tsumeb copper mines. Construction of the site was completed in 1962 and the smelter was officially commissioned in 1963 by Tsumeb Corporation Limited (TCL).
Jan 13, 2021 After charging the matte, the feed is immediately begun. The feed consists of copper concentrate with added silica flux. Assays of the concentrate and mineral composition are shown in tables 2 and 3. Conversion is begun after smelting about 1 hour in order to build up a pool of matte and slag and to heat the matte to about 1,250 C.
Feb 23, 2016 The main impurities (deleterious or penalty elements) in complex concentrates are Sb, As, Bi, Cd, Cl, F, Pb, Hg, U and Zn. Each element has a threshold level above which a smelter will charge a penalty in addition to treatment/refining charges (TC/RCs). There may also be an upper limit over which the smelter will reject the concentrate.
Jul 06, 2020 With the gradual decrease in the grade of copper ores being processed, copper concentrates have become more complex with higher impurity and gangue content. This trend has had a detrimental effect on smelters as they have to increase throughput to maintain copper metal production, while increasing operating costs due to processing the increased amounts of secondary products
May 18, 2021 In 2021, the cash cost per tonne of complex concentrate smelted is expected to range between US$450 (N$6 371,46) and US$520 (N$7 362,58) per tonne, unchanged from the previously issued guidance ...
Concentrate Concentrate Furnace Matte Smelting Ore Anglo Converting Process (at Rustenburg) Our configuration differs from our competitors - we have a broad footprint across all 3 Bushveld limbs.

Apr 13, 2021 A lack of concentrates supply has caused smelter treatment charges to tumble. ... Smelter economics are complex with multiple variables
The Kivcet process was developed in the former U.S.S.R. for smelting complex copper concentrates containing lead, zinc and other impurities. Dried concentrate is introduced tangentially into a small water-cooled cyclone where it is autogenously flash smelted with technical oxygen. The products pass into a partition chamber where they melt and ...
Jun 02, 2021 The zinc concentrate produced at the existing concentrator plant will be treated in the smelter using the conventional roast-leach-electrowinning (R-L-E) process. The full process would involve the treatment of 680 000/tpa of zinc concentrate to produce 300 000/tpa of high-grade zinc ingots for export.

Treating complex elements requires blending with clean concentrates. Complex Concentrates Market Tsumeb is a niche complex concentrate treatment facility with core arsenic capability. The complex market concludes multi-year agreements and attracts TC premiums to the clean market of $30 to $50/t.
Mar 12, 2016 The object of this Concentrate Marketing post is to draw attention to the benefits of modern milling practice, thus enabling the miner and mill operator to plan their operations so as to net the highest commercial return.By making such products as will be in demand, they may thus take advantage of conditions existing in the various smelters where the concentrates must be sold.
Jan 19, 2020 The Kamoa-Kakula 2020 Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) included the construction of a smelter complex, based on Metso Outotecs direct-to-blister furnace technology that is suitable for treating Kakula-type concentrates with relatively high copper/sulphur ratio, and low iron.
Each of the unit operations of the smelter is described in greater detail below. Figure 1 shows how concentrate is handled at the smelter. Figure 1 Concentrate handling at Zimplats Smelter FILTRATION PLANT Thickened concentrate (45% solids) is pumped from the thickener into one of the two receiving tanks equipped with agitators.
Kosaka Smelter has been changed to a custom smelter and devoting to treat the complex sulfide copper concentrates in the world from this change. For the last decade, a progressive diversification of the smelter input has been taking place, impure and complex sulfide concentrate being introduced in increasing proportions compared with the period ...
One considers a typical copper concentrate as having about 25% copper and some minor quantity of impurities, preferably rich in precious metals. In practice, smelters purchase all variety of concentrates and blend them to provide a suitable feed for their operations. However, each smelter has differing
Jul 03, 2017 The Smelter now treats concentrate ranging from a low of 16% copper to a high of over 30% copper with an average grade of 22% copper. Treating this very low grade concentrate required development of new strategies to manage furnace heat balance
Copper smelting plants separate elemental copper from copper concentrates through multiple sulphide oxidizing stages. The considered smelting process includes a continuously functioning flash smelting furnace (FSF) and several Pierce-Smith converters operated in batches. Automating scheduling provides advisory information to operators.
