Galena Processing Plant

Galena is the natural mineral form of lead sulfide. It is the most important lead ore mineral. Galena is one of the most abundant and widely distributed sulfide minerals. It crystallizes in the cubic crystal system often showing octahedral forms. It is often associated with the minerals, calcite and fluorite.

Galena deposits often contain significant amounts of silver as included silver sulfide mineral phases or as limited solid solution within the galena structure. These galena’s have long been the most important ore of silver in mining. In addition zinc, cadmium, antimony, arsenic and bismuth also occur in variable amounts in lead ores. Selenium substitutes for sulfur in the structure constituting a solid solution series. The lead telluride mineral has the same crystal structure as galena. Within the weathering or oxidation zone galena alters to anglesite (lead sulfate) or lead carbonate.

Galena Processing Technology

In order to recover Lead out of Galena, Smelting process is required. We at Gravita are capable of furnishing equipments & machines for Lead Smelting operations. The advantages we have in our system that the same set of Equipments are able to process various Lead bearing raw material. However the % of Lead produced differ from type of Raw material used. In case of Galena Processing, the important aspects are the presence of other elements which there by reduces the outcome of Lead.
