ABSTRACT:
In this study, the Taguchi method was used to determine the optimum conditions for leaching of dolomite ore in hydrochloric acid solutions. The experimental parameters were leaching temperature, solid-to-liquid ratio, acid initial concentration, leaching time and stirring speed. The following optimum leaching parameter levels were found: temperature 50°C, solid-to-liquid ratio 2%, acid concentration 20 g/cm3 (2 mol/dm3), stirring speed 450 rpm, leaching time 5 min. Under the optimum process conditions, the dolomite ore leaching efficiency was about 83%.
