Enhanced dissolution of tantalite/columbite following milling

Welham, N


A tantalum/niobium concentrate has been ball-milled for up to 50 h in a laboratory mill without apparent phase change, other than a decrease in unit cell symmetry and some amorphisation. The extent of dissolution in a mixture of hydrochloric acid and sodium fluoride increased with milling time. For a powder milled for 50 h, over 95% of the concentrate were solubilised in 24 h compared with ∼ 50% in 48 h for a 2-h milled powder. The kinetics of dissolution changed with the milling time,...[Show more]
