The copper–sulphur equilibrium phase system is relatively complicated. Beforeonly two binary sulphide minerals of copper were known, chalcocite, Cu 2 S, and covellite, CuS.

Although it was known that chalcocite forms solid solutions up to the composition Cu 18 S, the mineral digenite of the same composition was only described in For thousands of years the mineral chalcocite (pronounced KAL-kuh-site) has been a highly prized source of copper.

Its chemical composition is % Cu and % S. In some areas of the interfacial region the precipitates are rooted to the Ni–Cr end-member. This reaction morphology indicates the existence of the three-phase equilibria TiNi 3 +Cr ss +Ni ss and TiNi 3 +Cr ss +TiNi in the Ni–Cr–Ti system at this by:   Abstract.

Phase equilibria in the quaternary Ni-Re-Nb-Cr system at K have been determined by using the graph method combined with equilibrated alloys that were characterized with electron probe microanalysis and x-ray diffraction by: 4. The isothermal phase equilibria were established at the temperature of °C, which is lower than the temperatures of the major transformation observed in the Pr–Co–In sintered magnets [2] (those transformations were additionally studied for a selected polythermal section).Cited by: 7.

Phase equilibria of the Na,K,Mg,Na,K,Mg,Ca//SO 4,Cl-H 2 O system are studied at 50°C via translation in the crystallization range of glaserite (3K 2 SO 4 Na 2 SO 4).It is found that glaserite as the equilibrium phase of the investigated system at 50°C participates in the formation of 21 invariant points, 21 monovariant curves, and 34 divariant by: 2.

Thirty-two alloys were prepared for the °C phase equilibria study with compositions as shown in Fig. 1 and Table 1.

However, most chalcocite occurs in the supergene enriched environment below the oxidation zone of copper deposits as a result of the leaching of copper from the oxidized l class: Prismatic (2/m), (same H-M symbol).

The mean values and 1-sigma variations for supergene enrichment chalcocite are, for sedimentary copper chalcocite are (), and for hypogene chalcocite is ().Although the three populations show considerable overlap in the weakly fractionated range, 64% of the sedimentary copper measurements are less than, and 65% of the chalcocite from supergene enrichment has values greater than + by: 2.

In this work, phase relations and thermal stabilities of equilibrium phases in the Cu-Ni-S system have been reviewed. The calculated phase diagram of Cu-Ni system has been validated. Chalcocite Ore Zones at Las Minerale.

Fragments of the phase diagrams that have not been studied previously are calculated for the boundary ternary systems, with calculations for Si-B-C being Cited by: 1. Copper occurs in nature in many forms; chalcocite (Cu2S) is one form found in copper ores located in the western United States.

To recover metallic Cu (for pennies, wire, and many other uses) chalcocite is leached in an acid solution of ferric sulfate to form cupric sulfate.

The reasons for this is its high copper content (67% atomic ratio and nearly 80% by weight) and the ease at which copper can be separated from sulfur.Where Chalcocite is mined Cleavage and fracture Chalcocite will be mined in Red Chris mine 80 km from Dease Lake.

The mine is not yet in the proses of mining but they are in construction of the mine. Chalcocite has a conchoidal fracture and a prismatic cleavage. Alaskan Minerals.the solid phase CuS forms after the transfer of 50% of copper into the solution [2].

Two distinctive stages of the reaction have also been found by Warren [3] in the process of pressure-leaching of chalcocite in sulfuric acid. Stanczyk and Rampacek [4] have also observed.
