Book Review- Pressure Hydrometallurgy ‘12

I thank Prof. Fathi Habashi, of Laval University, Canada, for this review of the proceedings of the symposium on pressure hydrometallurgy held at the Conference of Metallurgists.

Autoclaves have been commercially used for the extraction of aluminum, nickel, cobalt, zinc, uranium and copper, for the oxidation of refractory gold feeds, and for the purification and recovery of various metals and metal by-products. New construction materials and improved reactor design extended the application of this technology.

The book is divided into the following sections:

- Refractory gold [ 6 papers]
- Modeling [ 3 papers]
- Process development [ 9 papers]
- Copper [ 6 papers]
- Zinc [ 10 papers]
- Platinum group metals [3 papers]

Pressure Hydrometallurgy ’12, edited by M.J. Collins, D. Filippou, J.R. Harlamovs, and E. Peek, ISBN: 978-1-926872-10-0, is published by Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum.
