Leaching of rare earth elements from bastnasite ore (third part)
RWTH Aachen University, IME Process Metallurgy and Metal Recycling, Aachen, Federal Republic of Germany



The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme (Call identifier FP7-NMP-2012-LARGE-6) under grant agreement n°309373


Sulfuric acid dissolution of rare earth elements from bastnasite ore was studied after reductive smelting with carbon as a reducing agent at 1600°C. The two-step strategy: 1.carbothermic reduction, and 2.dissolution with sulfuric acid at 70°C was applied under atmospheric pressure aiming at an increased selective extraction of rare earth elements from slag containing rare earth elements.
