FAYRAM, T.S. and ANDERSON, C.G.. The development and implementation of industrial hydrometallurgical gallium and germanium recovery. J. S. Afr. Inst. Min. Metall. [online]. 2008, vol.108, n.5, pp.261-271. ISSN 2411-9717.
The Gordonsville Operation of Pasminco US Inc. along with the Center for Advanced Mineral and Metallurgical Processing (CAMP) at Montana Tech studied, developed and implemented a pilot-scale hydrometallurgical facility for the industrial recovery of germanium and gallium. This paper describes the joint testing and engineering programme that culminated in this successful process.
