This comprehensive technical reference provides an overview of aqueous metallurgy and its applications in mineral processing operations. The text presents the physicochemical principles of various water-based processes, including interfacial phenomena, hydrometallurgy, and metallurgical kinetics. Written as a text for college- and graduate-level instruction, the book presents the fundamental principles of water-based metallurg and includes review questions and answers for each chapter. It is a valuable reference for those studying mineral processing, resource recovery, and the corrosion of metals and alloys. The book also offers a practical reference for environmental and chemical engineers, chemists, and mineral processing engineers who are responsible for mineral processing plant design and operations.
