1994-7-1  The use of oxidising agents such as ferric ions in the leaching of sphalerite is of importance in all the zinc processes that are in operation or under development. Addition of ferric ions to the leaching solution serves to raise the potential an- odically at the mineral surface and thereby facilitate the dissolution of sphalerite.

A detailed mineralogical assessment of sphalerites

2011-7-1  For instance, it suggests that milling to a finer grain size will not remove or reduce the iron and manganese content. Another concern to processing will be the variable mineral chemistry of sphalerite, which might cause some sphalerites to display a delayed response during flotation or misreport to the lead concentrate.

The dissolution of sphalerite with 8.2% iron was found to follow a two-electron process at low overpotentials, while a total of 6 electrons were needed at high overpotentials. The activation energy was determined as a function of potential. For chloride solutions the activation energy was found to be 58±3 kJ/mol at 0.25-0.8 V.

2019-9-11  Sphalerite is the main Zn mineral in the Lappberget ore body and occurs in massive sulfide lenses, veins and disseminations. It commonly contains pyrrhotite or chalcopyrite inclusions. Results from this study show varying concentration of Zn, Fe and Mn (Figure 3), allowing four sphalerite populations to be identified: 1) Zn-rich (Fe- and Mn-poor), 2) Fe-rich, 3) Mn-rich and 4) Fe- and Mn-bearing.

2006-3-1  The addition of metal ions (such as copper or zinc ions) to mineral pulps containing sphalerite is generally performed with a view to ‘activating’ the mineral surface for enhanced collector adsorption, or to form a hydrophilic metal hydroxide layer at the mineral surface to reduce or prevent sphalerite recovery (Klassen and Mokrousov, 1963, Allison et al., 1975).
