Mar 01, 1977· Previous processes, both pyrometallurgical and hydrometallurgical, for treating zinc silicate ores are reviewed. Some comparisons are made with the new continuous leaching process recently developed by the Electrolytic Zinc Company of Australasia .Cited by: 9

Zinc oxide is prepared commercially by two methods: the American process, which uses zinc ore and concentrate, and the French process, which uses zinc metal. Some 54% of US zinc oxide production is from zinc ore and concentrate , 33% from slab zinc and 13% from secondary material.
Oct 01, 2014· The conventional process of zinc recovery from sulfide ores involves concentrating the low grade ores by the flotation technique, roasting the concentrate to form zinc oxide, leaching of the resultant calcine with dilute sulfuric acid, followed by electro deposition of zinc from purified leach solution, i.e., the roasting, leaching, electrowinning process.Cited by: 106
Zinc smelting is the process of converting zinc concentrates into pure zinc. The most common zinc concentrate processed is zinc sulfide, which is obtained by concentrating sphalerite using the froth flotation method. Secondary zinc material, such as zinc oxide, is also processed with the zinc sulfide.
Zinc processing, the extraction of zinc from its ores and the preparation of zinc metal or chemical compounds for use in various products. Zinc is a metallic element of hexagonal close packed crystal structure and a density of 7.13 grams per cubic centimetre. It has only moderate hardness and can be made ductile and easily worked at temperatures slightly above
