Production of cobalt from copper-cobalt ores on the

2020-9-1  A specific cobalt flotation circuit is run at KCM’s Nchanga concentrator. The ore from the Nchanga open pit contains pockets of ore with higher grades of cobalt, typically about 0.3% cobalt and 1.3% copper. This ore is processed in campaigns through the cobalt flotation circuit, which is illustrated schematically in Fig. 11. The concentrate

Production of Cobalt from the Copper–Cobalt Ores of

For mixed oxide-sulphide ore, recoveries are lower: up to 80% of the copper and 60% of the cobalt in the sulphides and only 60% of the copper and 40% of the cobalt in the oxides (Crundwell et al

As part of a study investigating the influence of mineralogical variability in a sediment hosted copper–cobalt deposit in the Democratic Republic of Congo on flotation performance, the flotation of nine sulphide ore samples was investigated through laboratory batch kinetics tests and quantitative mineral analyses. Using a range of ore samples from the same deposit the influence of mineralogy

Ores Containing Cobalt Cobalt Institute

Cobalt is almost always a by- or co-product of mining for other base metals, chiefly nickel and copper. Large quantities of cobalt also occur on the sea floor, contained within manganese nodules and cobalt-rich crusts, although they are not economically viable with current technology and economic conditions.
