EXTRACTION AND SEPARATION OF TANTALUM AND

2020-6-30  The extraction of niobium and tantalum from tantalite can be divided into three activities, viz., acid treatment of the ore to bring the niobium and tantalum values into solution, separation of niobium and tantalum by solvent extraction and preparation of pure niobium pentoxide and tantalum pentoxide by precipitation followed by calcination.

Tantalum Processing TIC

Processing: extraction and refining. The extraction and refining of tantalum, including the separation from niobium in these various tantalum-containing mineral concentrates, is generally accomplished by treating the ores with a mixture of hydrofluoric and sulfuric acids at elevated temperatures. This causes the tantalum and niobium values to

Extraction of Nb and Ta from a coltan ore from South Kivu

2021-3-15  An alkaline roasting of a coltan bearing ore from the Numbi deposit (South Kivu, the DRC) was investigated with particular focus on the extraction kinetics of Ta and Nb. Isothermal roasting experiments were carried out to study the effects from KOH to ore mass ratio, particle size and roasting temperature on the degree of Ta and Nb recoveries.
