ore extraction process hydrometallurgy is a method for obtaining metals from their ores. it is a technique within the field of extractive metallurgy involving the use of aqueous chemistry for the recovery of metals from ores concentrates and recycled or residual materials. metal chemical processing techniques that complement hydrometallurgy are pyrometallurgy vapour metallurgy and molten salt electrometallurgy. hydrometallurgy
hydrometallurgical extraction of copper from the waste material was performed using sulfuric acid as leaching agent. solid residue after copper leaching step was leached by thiourea in the presence of ferric ion fe2so43 as an oxidant in sulfuric acid solution in order to extract gold.
