Main purpose of this study was to investigate the production of high carbon ferromanganese by smelting a manganese ore located in Erzincan. Time, charge basicity, fluorspar addition and coke to ore weight ratio were used as experimental variables. After characterization of the ore, a mixture of 100 grams of uncalcined manganese ore and carefully weighed amounts of coke powder, lime, fluorspar and scrap iron were put into a conical graphite crucible. The graphite crucible with its contents was covered with a graphite lid and placed in an electronically controlled muffle furnace. The furnace was heated to 1600 oC and held at this temperature for a predetermined time and cooled to room temperature. The crucible was taken out of the furnace and the metal and slag phases formed were removed from the crucible by breaking the crucible and carefully weighed. Finally, the metal and slag phase were subjected to chemical analysis. The experimental results show that Erzincan manganese ore can be used in the production of high carbon ferromanganese.

Optimization of conditions to produce manganese and iron carbides from Denizli-Tavas manganese ore by solid state reduction
Akıl, Cem; Geveci, Ahmet; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2007)
Main purpose of this study was to find the optimum conditions to produce a charge material for ferromanganese production or steelmaking with high content of iron and manganese carbides from Denizli-Tavas manganese ore by carbothermic reduction and investigate the effects of temperature, time, amount of active carbon addition and CaO addition on this reduction. The ore was calcined and then mixed with active carbon and CaO. Experiments were performed in a horizontal tube furnace that can be heated up to 1700...
Production of precipitated calcium carbonate from marble wastes
Sezer, Nurettin; Arol, Ali İhsan; Department of Mining Engineering (2013)
The aim of this study was to investigate the production of precipitated calcium carbonate from marble wastes. Limestone is used as the source for the production of precipitated calcium carbonate. Marble wastes primarily constitute of CaCO3. As the major content of the marble waste and limestone are the same, marble wastes can be used as an alternative source for the production of precipitated calcium carbonate. By this way, both the adverse environmental effects of marble wastes can be prevented and the was...
Recovery of germanium and other valuable metals from zinc plant residues
Kul, A.; Topkaya, Yavuz Ali (Elsevier BV, 2008-06-01)
The main purpose of this study was to characterize and to extract germanium from the copper cake of Cinkur Zinc Plant. The physical, chemical and mineralogical characterization of the ground copper cake sample obtained from Cinkur showed that it was 84% below 147 pin containing 700 ppm germanium. The copper cake also contained 15.33% Cu, 15.63% Zn, 1.66% Cd, 1.33% Ni, 0.64% Co, 0.35% Fe, 2.62% Pb, 12.6% As, 0.18% Sb and 3.42% SiO2. The mineralogical analysis indicated the complex nature of the copper cake w...
EVALUATION OF LOW GRADE IRON ORE DEPOSIT IN ERZINCAN-TURKEY FOR IRON ORE PELLET CONCENTRATE PRODUCTION
SİVRİKAYA, OSMAN; Arol, Ali İhsan (2012-01-01)
In this study the separation possibility of gangue minerals from a low grade magnetite ore with 45% Fe from an iron ore deposit located near Erzincan-Turkey was investigated. The iron ore deposit consists of mainly magnetite mineral. Hematite is the second iron oxide found in the deposit. The gangue minerals contain mainly SiO2 and Al2O3 impurities. The main object of the research is to investigate the production of a concentrate suitable for iron ore pellet production. The concentrate for pellet production...
Investigation of the pre-concentration possibility of scandium ores
Altınsel, Yiğit; Altun, Naci Emre; Topkaya, Yavuz Ali; Department of Mining Engineering (2018)
This study was aimed at investigating the possibility of obtaining a scandium (Sc) pre-concentrate from Eskişehir-Mihalıççık scandium bearing clayey ore through mineral processing methods namely attrition scrubbing, enhanced gravity separation by using falcon concentrator, magnetic separation and flotation concentration. In this context, the study began with the characterization of the run-of-mine Eskişehir-Mihalıççık scandium ore by performing mineralogical, XRD and chemical analyses. Mineralogical analysi...
