Environmental factors of lead zinc processing plant

Sep 10, 2017 Therefore, it is likely that environmental factors were responsible for the trends in the spatial distributions of heavy metals. In addition, all soil samples were collected entirely from lead-zinc mine areas. Typically, high concentration distributions of heavy metals may be largely explained by extensive mining activities

    LEAD ZINC EXTRACTION PROCESSES

    are used for production of lead zinc depending on the type of raw material used as a charge. In the pyrometallurgical process, ore concentrate containing lead, zinc, or both is fed, in some cases after sintering, into a primary smelter. Lead concentrations can be 50-70%, and the sulfur content of sulfidic ores is in the range of 15-20%
