Description Hydrometallurgy has emerged as a leading technology in recent times. This branch of metallurgy has become extremely successful in a number of areas of extractive processed. It is also credited with tremendous potentialities. Current interest in the field of hydrometallurgy is profound. Hydrometallurgy processes offers a number of significant advantages over pyrometallurgy. In particular, the diversity of the process can applied to various metal resource recovery with high purity. The outline of this course includes: 1. Introduction 2. Acid leaching process 3. Alkalies leaching process 4. Ferric and cupric ions leaching process 5. Chlorine and cyanide leaching process 6. Solution purification process 7. Metal recovery process The purpose of this course is to provide the student with basic knowledge of hydrometallurgy and to enhance the training as a engineer of resources engineering.
