    The sulfuric acid with low concentration causes fewer amounts of Fe and other impurities dissolution in more leaching times. But, sulfuric acid leaching could not recover the sulfide slag copper in high efficiencies, due to sulfur layer formation on the slag particles during the leaching process [8, 17].

    Sulfuric acid (H. 2. SO. 4. ) is a strong acid. It is an odorless, clear to dark brown, oily liquid that is corrosive. Sulfuric acid has many industrial purposes and is produced in greater quantities than any other chemical worldwide. In metal mining, sulfuric acid is used to leach copper oxide minerals.

    Producing Copper Nature's Way Bioleaching

    Summary. Bioleaching involves the use of microorganisms to catalyze the oxidation of iron sulfides to create ferric sulfate and sulfuric acid. Ferric sulfate, which is a powerful oxidizing agent, then oxidizes the copper sulfide minerals and the copper contained is then leached by the sulfuric acid formed.

    Sulfuric acid, the leaching agent, is brought on site in large tankers. The sulfuric acid is diluted and sprayed or dripped over oxide ore, which dissolves the oxidized minerals completely in the solution. The solution, pregnant with the dissolved metals, is then piped to the SX EW plant that separates out the copper into 99% pure bars.
