A review of nickel, copper and cobalt recovery by chelating ion exchange resins from mining processes and mining tailings

Mining Engineering, 2019, Vol. 71, No. 1, pp. 37-38
Botelho Junior, Amilton Barbosa; Dreisinger, David B.; Espinosa, Denise C.R.


ABSTRACT:

Chelating resins can be used to recover important metals from different sources, and it is important to understand which resin is most suitable for each metal [1]. This review  benefits the mining industry because chelating resins can be used to recover metals from low-grade ores and mining tailings, increasing the industrial process efficiency [2–4]. 

   Furthermore, the use of chelating resins in mining processes and mining tailings has the common problem of metals contamination, with iron being the main contaminant in low-grade ores and tailings. Understanding how contaminants decrease ion exchange efficiency is significant for industries [5].
