Abstract

A composite mixture of three typical Cu/Zn complex ores, namely black-, yellow- and altered-ore, from Cayeli deposit in Turkey, was used for leaching experiments under atmospheric pressure in ferric sulphate solutions, In order to study the reaction kinetics of the copper and zinc dissolution in the temperature range from 50 to 80-degrees-C; also in the presence of a solvent for elemental sulphur, such as CCl4.
