The extractable sulfide minerals are pentlandite ((Ni,Fe) 9 S 8) which contains a small amount of cobalt, and the most abundant pyrrhotite ((Fe n−1 S n) or (Ni,Fe) 7 S 8).Chalcopyrite is another major mineral for nickel sulfide ores that must be considered when choosing extractive processes.

Publisher Summary. This chapter is designed to illustrate the general principles of applied mineralogy. Applied mineralogy in the mining industry is the application of mineralogical information to understanding and solving problems encountered during exploration and mining, and during processing of ores, concentrates, smelter products, and related materials.

Robinson, Introduction to Optical Mineralogy by Wil. Sulfide mineral, sulfide also spelled sulphide, any member of a group of compounds of sulfur with one or more metals.

Most of the sulfides are simple structurally, exhibit high symmetry in their crystal forms, and have many of the properties of metals, including metallic lustre and electrical conductivity. They often are strikingly coloured and. The Sulfide Class minerals comprise an economically important class of minerals.

Most major ores of important metals such as copper, lead and silver are sulfides. Strong generalities exist in this class. The majority of sulfides are metallic, opaque, generally sectile, soft to average in hardness and they have high densities, black or dark-colored streaks, and an igneous origin.

The sulphide minerals are compounds of the metals with sulphur. Nearly all these minerals have a metallic luster, i.e., the peculiar shining appearance of metals, such as gold, silver, copper, lead, tin, iron, etc.

They are all heavy minerals and nearly all are of economic importance. Iron Pyrites or Pyrite. FeS2. — Color, pale brass-yellow. Several review volumes that chart the applications of these developments in mineralogy and geochemistry are available (Tossell and Vaughan, ; Cygan and Kubicki, ).

An important feature of the sulfide minerals is the diversity of their electronic structures, as evidenced by their electrical and magnetic properties (see Pearce et al.

The most common sulfide mineral found under crustal conditions is pyrite (FeS 2) which is formed at temperatures below °C during diagenesis, metamorphism, late-stage magmatic crystallization and hydrothermal activity, or through exsolution and recrystallization of higher-temperature sulfide phases during cooling.

Pyrite is an example of a. The second edition of Introduction to Mineralogy follows the highly successful first edition, which become an overnight market leader.

Mineralogy of Sulfides. INTRODUCTION. Sulfide minerals are compounds in which sulfur is combined as an anion with a metal (or semi-metal) cation or cations. The definition is commonly widened to include minerals in which the anion is As or Sb, sometimes together with S, and to include Se and Te minerals.

The crystal structures, electrical and magnetic properties, spectroscopic studies, chemical bonding, thermochemistry, phase relations, solution chemistry, surface structure and chemistry, hydrothermal precipitation processes.

Over the last decade there has been an increasing interest in deep-sea mineral resources that may contribute to future raw metal supply. However, before seafloor massive sulfides (SMS) can be considered as a resource, alteration and weathering processes that may affect their metal tenor have to be fully understood.

This knowledge cannot be obtained by assessing the surface exposures alone Cited by: 3. This book covers the entire spectrum of mineralogy and consolidates its applications in different fields. Part I starts with the very basic concept of mineralogy describing in detail the implications of the various aspects of mineral chemistry, crystallographic structures.
