Extraction of Platinum Group Metals

About 80% of the worlds' reserves for platinum group metals (PGMs) are in South Africa's Bushveld Igneous Complex. Processing of PGM involves comminution, flotation, smelting, converting, base metals refinery and precious metals refinery. Due to increasing chrome content in the feed and the challenges associated with operating high chrome feed, alternative routes to smelting of PGM are

Aspects of SAF Smelting of Ferrochrom

The preprocessing of the run-of-mine ore to produce concentrates and pellets is clearly targeted at enhancing the reduction characteristics of the ore to ensure maximum reduction takes place through gaseous reduction. The effects of preprocessing on the kinetics of reduction have been reported in a number of studies [24-29].

Conversely, addition of a strongly oxidizing agent (potassium permanganate) resulted in toxic effects in plates incorporating more than 40--80 microgram of compounds and elicited a dose-effect mutagenic response at 10--40 microgram per plate. These effects could be ascribed to oxidation of chromium from the trivalent to the active hexavalent state.

Iron ore is converted into various types of iron through several processes. The most common process is the use of a blast furnace to produce pig iron which is about 92-94% iron and 3-5% carbon with smaller amounts of other elements. Pig iron has only limited uses, and most of this iron goes on to a steel mill where it is converted into various
