Chemical processing methods are applied in processing of low grade, complex ores or certain mineral resources to recover concentrates (metal). These chemical methods are very closely connected with the study of mutual action of the chemical agents and the mineral. It is very important to have the basic and analytical knowledge of chemistry to recover quantities of pure metals from the solution. syllabus Informing the students about the laboratory equipment, techniques and work procedures as well as modi operandi in a laboratory. Practice in blocs: Leaching by stirring, leaching under pressure – Bayer’s method. Segregation facility, oxidizing roasting, sulphatizing roasting. Extraction on the principle of cation exchange, extraction on the principle of anion exchange, determination of ion-exchange capacity, copper cementation.
