Article
Full-text available
Test work was conducted to investigate the effect of magnesia and alumina crucible wear in laboratory-scale smelting tests on titaniferous magnetite (titanomagnetite) in terms of iron and vanadium recoveries as well as slag properties. The study was motivated by the desire to develop capacity to provide technical support to the minerals industry in...
Preprint
Full-text available
A literature investigation of the Fe-V-O ternary oxide system was conducted on all available phase equilibria and thermodynamic property data at 1 atm total pressure. Limited data is available for high temperature conditions at reduced oxygen partial pressures. The results were used in designing the experimental setup and planning. In this paper we...

Rare earth elements (REEs) are commonly extracted from various resources using hydrometallurgical processes. However, these processes tend to be unselective, with high co-extraction of gangue components. Co-extraction of gangue elements is undesirable as it complicates downstream separation and purification processes. Preliminary tests were conduct...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Rare Earth Elements (REE) have unique magnetic, luminescent and electrochemical properties making them applicable in various industries. REEs are currently extracted by conventional hydrometallurgical processes which have high REE and gangue metals recoveries, rendering them unselective. Preliminary sulphation roasting tests were conducted to show...

Chapter
The current liquidus surface and phase equilibria established in air for fluxed titaniferous magnetite (titanomagnetite) slags conforming to a composition of 37.19% TiO2, 19.69% SiO2, 13.12% Al2O3, and 30.00% of various ratios of CaO+MgO were reviewed at applicable PO2 using FactSage simulation and phase composition of a real plant titanomagnetite...

Laboratory-scale tests were conducted at Mintek for the production of titanium powder from particulate Kroll sponge by the hydrogenation- dehydrogenation (HDH) process. The aim of this work was to produce titanium powder for powder metallurgical consolidations. The work involved the production of titanium powder at optimized conditions, which inclu...
