Sulfide Ore - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

Sulphide ores are a major source of Cu, Ni and precious metals. A basic principle of the extraction processes is to blow air into the molten sulphide in order to oxidise (1) S, which forms a gas and (2) Fe, which forms predominantly FeO and then partitions to a slag phase which covers the matte.
