Aug 01, 2008  Sullivan concluded that ferric chloride is a better chalcopyrite leaching agent than ferric sulphate and that the effect was more marked at high temperatures. Dutrizac et al. (1969) found that, in a temperature range between 50 and 100 °C, the chalcopyrite leaching rate was linear in chloride medium and parabolic in sulphate medium.

A comparative study of electrochemical leaching and chemical leaching of chalcopyrite was done to elucidate the leaching mechanism of chalcopyrite with FeCl3. The leaching rate of chalcopyrite exhibits a half order dependency on the FeCl3 concentration, whereas it is independent of the FeCl2 concentration. The mixed potential of chalcopyrite exhibits a 72 mV decade−1 dependency upon

COPPER HYDROMETALLURGY AND EXTRACTION FROM

Chloride and its compounds, including metal chlorides, are effective oxidants. Ferric chloride and cupric chloride oxidise many materials rapidly and can be generated readily by electrolysis or oxidation with chlorine. For rapid and complete leaching of copper sulphides, and chalcopyrite in particular, strong oxidising conditions are necessary.
