Copper reagent research to make waste profitable

A $583,207 project could lead to chemistry and chemical reagents that improve the processing of low-grade copper and gold ores by helping reject waste minerals.

 New chemistry and chemical reagents will be developed to efficiently and economically reject the waste minerals.

New chemistry and chemical reagents will be developed to efficiently and economically reject the waste minerals.

The Australian Research Council-funded University of Queensland project will seek to achieve this by depressing pyrrhotite in the copper and gold flotation process and make the copper component in gold-copper...
