This book is concerned with the theoretical principles of hydrometallurgical processes and engineering aspects. The hydrometallurgical processes of production of copper are discussed and leaching of chalcopyrite as the main sulphide mineral of copper processed in industry is used as an example. The book is suitable as a university textbook for students of metallurgy.
- Examines the different techniques involved
- Discusses the production of specific metals using hydrometalluric processes
- Looks at the future of hydrometallurgy
