Investigation on selective rhenium leaching from molybdenite roasting flue dusts

Ali Entezari; Mohammad Karamoozian; M Eskandari Nasab

Volume 4, Issue 2 , July 2013, Pages 77-82


  The possibility of selective leaching process was investigated during molybdenite flue dust leaching to recover its rhenium content. The results show that addition of alcohols to water makes the medium less favorable for molybdenum transfer into aqueous phase. On the other hand, addition of small amounts ...  Read More

Case Study
Adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy Inference System application for hydrothermal alteration mapping using ASTER data

Saeed Mojeddifar; Hojatollah Ranjbar; Hossain Nezamabadipour

Volume 4, Issue 2 , July 2013, Pages 83-96


  The main problem associated with the traditional approach to image classification for the mapping of hydrothermal alteration is that materials not associated with hydrothermal alteration may be erroneously classified as hydrothermally altered due to the similar spectral properties of altered and unaltered ...  Read More

Estimation of 3D density distribution of chromites deposit using gravity data

Ali Nejati Kalateh; Amin Roshandel kahoo

Volume 4, Issue 2 , July 2013, Pages 97-104


  We inverse the surface gravity data to recover subsurface 3D density distribution with two strategy. In the first strategy, we assumed wide density model bound for inverting gravity data and In the second strategy, the inversion procedure have been carried out by limited bound density. Wediscretize the ...  Read More

Case Study
A developed approach based on grinding time to determine ore comminution properties

Negar Saeidi; Dariush Azizi; Mohammad Noaparast; Soheila Aslani; R Ramadi

Volume 4, Issue 2 , July 2013, Pages 105-112


  In this paper, iron ore sample from the Chadormalu was investigated to determine some comminution properties. Chadormalu deposit is one of the largest iron ore mine in Iran, which is located in Yazd province. The representative ore sample contained 57%Fe, 0.9%P and 0.17%S. The sample was crushed; afterward, ...  Read More

Case Study
Metal extraction competence of plants on waste dumps of magnesite mine, Salem District, South India

N Mathiyazhagan; Natarajan D

Volume 4, Issue 2 , July 2013, Pages 113-124


  An ex-situ experiment to assess the metal extractive potential of fourteen agriculture plants (Vigna unguiculata, Gossypium hirsutum, Jatropha curcas, etc.) was conducted on Magnesite mines which had above permissible levels of Cadmium and Lead. There was no much difference in the total chlorophyll a ...  Read More

Case Study
Predicting peak particle velocity by artificial neural networks and multivariate regression analysis - Sarcheshmeh copper mine, Kerman, Iran

Hassan Bakhsandeh Amnieh; Alireza Mohammadi; M Mozdianfard

Volume 4, Issue 2 , July 2013, Pages 125-132


  Ground vibrations caused by blasting are undesirable results in the mining industry and can cause serious damage to the nearby buildings and facilities; therefore, controlling such vibrations has an important role in reducing the environmental damaging effects. Controlling vibration caused by blasting ...  Read More

Case Study
Approximate resistivity and susceptibility mapping from airborne electromagnetic and magnetic data, a case study for a geologically plausible porphyry copper unit in Iran

Maysam Abedi; Gholam-Hossain Norouzi; Nader Fathianpour; Ali Gholami

Volume 4, Issue 2 , July 2013, Pages 133-146


  This paper describes the application of approximate methods to invert airborne magnetic data as well as helicopter-borne frequency domain electromagnetic data in order to retrieve a joint model of magnetic susceptibility and electrical resistivity. The study area located in Semnan province of Iran consists ...  Read More
