    • November 14, 2014

The process route for the production of base and platinum‐group metals from natural sulfide ores commonly requires recovery of sulfide minerals concentrate through flotation which is then fed to smelting furnaces and subsequent conversion of high‐iron furnace matte into an iron‐lean converter matte. This is followed by pre‐treatment through cooling of the iron‐lean molten matte, physical processing of the solidified matte and hydrometallurgical metal extraction. This presentation looks into basic mineral processing techniques in extraction of base metals and PGMs.
