Utilization of Zinnwaldite Wastes for Recovery of Lithium and Rubidium Compounds
Department of Metals and Corrosion Engineering, Institute of Chemical Technology, Prague
Chemical and mineralogical characteristics of zinnwaldite wastes deposited in the Cínovec area and of zinnwaldite concentrates prepared by dry magnetic dressing of the wastes were determined. A study of structure changes in sintering of zinnwaldite concentrates with a mixture consisting of CaSO4 and Ca(OH)2 (gypsum method) was carried out. The influence of sintering conditions on Li and Rb extraction from sintering products in water was described.
