Development of a Biotechnological Process for Reprocessing Flotation Tailings from Almalyk Mining and Metallurgical Complex, Rep. of Uzbekistan
Trial tests on biotechnology of flotation tailings processing from copper-concentrating factory at Almalyk Mining and Metallurgical Complex are carried out. Suitability of flotation tailings to processing by a method of heap bacterial leaching is experimentally determined. It is shown, that extraction of copper from flotation tailings makes 56 %, biooxidation of chalcopyrite makes more than 62 %, and pyrite - 87-92 %.
