Comparison of Methods for Recovering Metal Values from Salton Sea KGRA Brines.
Geothermal Res Council Trans 1982 Oct; 6:111-113
The Bureau of Mines is investigating methods for recovering metal values from geobrines. Two precipitation techniques were evaluated for recovering selected metal values from Salton Sea Known Geothermal Resource Area brines. Lime addition precipitates more than 95 pct of the iron, manganese, lead, and zinc, while sulfide addition precipitates more than 90 pct of the lead and zinc and lesser amounts of iron and manganese. A comparison of these techniques and a discussion of the respective advantages and disadvantages are presented.
