Investigations were conducted by the U.S. Bureau of Mines to develop flowsheets for the recovery of tungsten and gold from four Alaskan scheelite-bearing ores. Basic gravity concentration and cyanide leach tests were performed on all samples. About 46 pct of the tungsten and 30 pct of the gold from one sample were recovered in a gravity concentrate containing 24 pct wo3 (tungstic oxide) and 119

Production of High Purity APT from Scheelite and Complex

73% of the tungsten resources in China are scheelite and 41% of themare high molybdenum content ores, respectively, and their dressing becomes increasingly difficult. Such situation calls for new and advanced processes that can treat complex ores and still attain high overall recovery of tungsten.

SCHEELITE (Calcium Tungstate)

Scheelite is an important ore of tungsten which is a strategically important metal. Scheelite is named for the discoverer of tungsten, K. W. Scheele. Although most of the world wide production of tungsten comes from the mineral wolframite, scheelite is especially abundant in the US and provides the United States with most of its supply.

Two techniques were investigated for removing cao from scheelite (cawo4) prior to electrolysis. In the first technique, a crude tungstic oxide (wo3) containing 0.15 percent lime (cao) was prepared by digesting scheelite concentrates in hot hydrochloric acid. This oxide was used as cell feed to produce tungsten of 99.9-percent purity. The second technique used a high-temperature, two-phase separ

Tungsten: Properties, Production, and Applications

Tungsten occurs naturally in the environment as in rocks and minerals combined other chemicals, but it doesn't exist as a pure metal. The two major minerals of tungsten are wolframite and scheelite. Wolframite [(Fe,Mn)WO 4)] is found in quartz veins and pegmatites associated with granitic intrusions [5]. Wolframite is strong, very dense, and
