Keywords: Copper / nickel / cobalt; other nonferrous, precious metals; pyrometallurgy
Scope: Invited papers only will be published in this topic covering pyrometallurgical processes developed to recover metals from complex ores. The term complex refers to multi-metal sulfide resources, which often present inclusions and intricate structural or alteration patterns. Also included are orebodies such as multi-metal oxide ores that complicate processing due to the diversity of minor elements they contain. This topic will present a state-of-the-art picture of the high-temperature processing of complex ore, from historical to best available technologies.
