topic 1-concepts of an ore deposit - slideshare,ore deposits may be considered as: ore deposit is an occurrence of minerals or metals in sufficiently high concentration to be profitable to mine and process using current technology and under current economic conditions. commercial mineral deposits (i.e., ore: suitable for mining in the present times) or non-commercial ore deposits (i.e., protore: problems in mining, transportation, prices....etc). 13 prof. dr. h.z. harraz presentation mining.2 overview of technology and mining | evolutionary and,phosphate mining is confined to florida, north carolina, idaho, utah, and wyoming. newly mined sulfur comes from the offshore gulf of mexico and western texas, but recovered sulfur comes from many sources, such as power plants, smelters, and petroleum refineries..

this type of mining is particularly damaging to the environment because strategic minerals are often only available in small concentrations, which increases the amount of ore needed to be mined. environmental hazards are present during every step of the open-pit mining process. hardrock mining exposes rock that has lain unexposed for geological eras.
why use gravity concentration? gravity concentration is often an effective and economic unit operation, with low capital and operating costs. the process can also be environmentally favorable, as little to no reagents are used in the process. 911 metallurgy can help you determine if your ore process could benefit from gravity concentration.
in countries like chile, which is actually the first world copper producer, many mining operations process from 10 000 to 40 000 tons of ore per day and produce between 10 000 and 200 000 tons of copper per year by using heap or dump bioleaching of minerals such as oxides, chalcocite, covellite, chalcopyrite, and others. similar situations take
limestone deposits are found throughout the world. they are “mined” in a process known as “quarrying.” this process varies depending on the use of the product. if it is to be made into cement, it is needed in small pieces so that it can be ground
phosphate-bearing rocks are mined to produce phosphorus, an essential element used in industry and agriculture. the process of extraction includes removal of surface vegetation, thereby exposing phosphorus rocks to the terrestrial ecosystem, damaging the land area with exposed phosphorus, resulting in ground erosion. 
phosphorite, phosphate rock or rock phosphate is a non-detrital sedimentary rock that contains high amounts of phosphate minerals. the phosphate content of phosphorite varies greatly, from 4% to 20% phosphorus pentoxide. marketed phosphate rock is enriched to at least 28%, often more than 30% p2o5. this occurs through washing, screening, de-liming, magnetic separation or flotation. by comparison, the average phosphorus content of sedimentary rocks is less than 0.2%. the phosphate
(d) the % weight recovery is equal to the % weight of the concentrate in table 1. it can also be calculated from the assay values given in the table, as follows: % weight recovery = 100·(2.09 - 0.1)(20 – 0.1) = 10% (e) the enrichment ratio is calculated by dividing the
during mining, tailings (heavier and larger particles settled at the bottom of the flotation cell during mining) are directly discharged into natural depressions, including onsite wetlands resulting in elevated concentrations . extensive pb and zinc zn ore mining and smelting have resulted in contamination of soil that poses risk to human and ecological health.
stage 1: crushing and grinding the ore from the mine contains about 2% copper. to get at the copper the first stage is crushing in huge cylindrical ball mills. ball mills crush the ore into a fine powder. (courtesy of rio tinto.) stage 2: froth flotation
set the crucible directly on the charcoal. load more charcoal around the crucible. turn the hair dryer on low to force air into the chamber below the charcoal. if the temperature fails to get high enough to melt your ore, turn the hair dryer up to high. be very careful not to get the charcoal so hot that it causes the ore to liquefy and then bubble.
many other policy reforms led the cement industry to expand in capacity, process, technology and production. today, there are 128 large plants and 332 mini cement plants in the country, producing variety of cement. question 49. why does indian cement have a large demand in the international market and whom do we export to? answer:
impact crushers are commonly used to crush rocks with a silica contain under 5% such as coal, limestone, and phosphate. the only reason why you would use an impact mill/crusher or a hammer mill on a high-silica rock is because it might be sticky in nature and rich in clay. such high abrasion/high silica impact/hammer crusher operation see extremely high maintenance costs having to be endured.
like nitrogen, phosphorus in npk fertilizer can come from both organic and inorganic sources: common inorganic sources of p in npk blends. the primary source of inorganic phosphorus is phosphate rock. crushed phosphate rock can be applied to soils directly, but it is much more effective if processed to be more readily available for plant uptake.
in the /sesquicarbonate/ process, the crushed ore is dissolved in hot (95 °c) return liquor, clarified, filtered and sent to cooling crystallizers where sodium sesquicarbonate... is formed. carbon is added to the filters to control any crystal modifying organics. the sesquicarbonate crystals are hydrocloned, centrifuged, and calcined (110-175 °c) using either indirect steam heat or combustion gases.
comminution, an energy-intensive process, usually begins with blasting of rock in the mining operation followed by crushing in large, heavy machines, often used in stages and in combination with screens to minimize production of particles too fine for subsequent treatment (sidebar 3-3). grinding is usually done in tumbling mills, wet or dry, with as little production of fine particles as possible.
the basics of copper mining and processing. mined from open pits, copper ore must be crushed as part of the process that occurs between extraction and production. using today’s compact mining equipment, copper ore is extracted from the mine. after the ore is crushed, it’s roasted, which helps to convert sulfides to oxides.
the eggshells do add many of the minor and micro nutrients need by the plants and one report does state even large pieces of eggshells do no harm in the soil. there seems to be evidence that eggshells finely crushed are underestimated as a liming agent but are also less water soluble which can be a good thing as the calcium will remain longer
a crusher is a machine designed to reduce large rocks into smaller rocks, gravel, sand or rock dust. crushers may be used to reduce the size, or change the form, of waste materials so they can be more easily disposed of or recycled, or to reduce the size of a solid mix of raw materials, so that pieces of different composition can be differentiated. crushing is the process of transferring a force amplified
coal is primarily obtained by surface mining (sometimes called “ strip mining,” but not by the industry) and underground mining. there are two main sources of power plant coal in the united states: (1) pennsylvanian-age coals in eastern basins like the appalachian, illinois, and black warrior, and (2) paleocene-age coals in western states such as wyoming, colorado, and montana.
this is why most fertilizers contain nitrogen compounds and why industrial fertilizers are essential in order to produce enough crops to feed the human population. humans now add as much or more industrially fixed nitrogen (~150 billion kilograms) to the environment each year, than is naturally fixed [1, 2]. one hundred and fifty billion kilograms (~330 billion pounds) of anything is hard to imagine, but this is equal to the weight
chondroitin is a naturally occurring substance formed of sugar chains. chondroitin is believed to help the body maintain fluid and flexibility in the joints. glucosamine is sugar protein that helps your body build cartilage (the hard connective tissue located mainly on the bones near your joints).
prolonged exposure to low concentrations or short term exposure to high concentrations may result in adverse health effects. rate of onset: immediate persistence: hours - days odor threshold: ~1 ppm source/use/other hazard: used in many industries; very corrosive to skin/mucous membranes as well as metals & other materials.
after it is mined, spodumene is heated to 2012 degrees fahrenheit and then cooled to 149 degrees. it's then crushed and roasted again, this time with concentrated sulfuric acid. ultimately, sodium carbonate, or soda ash, is added, and the resulting lithium carbonate is
