  • SKORPION ZINC: LESSONS LEARNT IN THE OPERATION OF THE

    ABSTRACT. The firsttime appliion of a purely hydrometallurgical route for the exploitation of an oxide ore to produce special highgrade zinc was realised at Skorpion Zinc using the Modified ZincexTM technology. The essential process comprises leaching, solvent extraction (SX), and electrowinning. The main functions

    the solvent extraction process (Skorpion Zinc) (Souza,. 2005). The traditional hydrometallurgical production of zinc from its sulphides comprises roasting, leaching and elec trolysis (Feneau, 2002), namely the RLE process. This pro cess was devised to treat zinc sulphide concentrates and basically includes a zinc sulphide

    Optimum processing conditions for these materials were also briefly investigated. Leaching test work showed that it would be possible to obtain recoveries in excess of 93% on the EAF dust, 96.9% from the zinc dross and 98% from the flue dust samples in the Skorpion process, using the normal process conditions of 50°C,

    Loed in the southwestern Spergebiet region in Namibia, Skorpion Zinc is one of the few mines in the world with an economically viable oxide zinc deposit. The ore is processed in a sulphuric acid atmospheric leaching circuit, followed by solvent extraction and electrowinning. Zinc casting is used to obtain the 99.995%

    It is concluded that ferric leaching of sphalerite in a sulphate medium under atmospheric or pressure leach conditions are suitable processes for Skorpion Zinc. These processes present advantages over all other zinc processing options when elemental sulphur is preferred as the final deportment for sulphide sulphur.
