Mining Industry

In the mining industry, lime products are used to refine and condition metal ores and non-ferrous metals such as Copper, Zinc, Nickel, Gold, Silver and Aluminum.

For this application, lime products are used in the froth flotation of Copper, Nickel and Zinc and are used in Gold and Silver processing to ensure proper pH in the leaching circuit.  They are also used in Aluminum processing to precipitate impurities and regenerate caustic.

In addition to its refining capabilities, lime products can be used in the mining industry to scrub acid gasses from smelting operations, to dry and stabilize mining waste sludge and as a reagent in mining water treatment plants.
