    Abstract:

    The industrial area around RTB Bor encompasses about 9,190,940 tons of techno genic deposits of copper smelting slag with an average of 0.715% copper content. As part of a project to recuperate copper from these deposits, this work investigates the effect of the rapid cooling of these slags on their physicochemical milling and flotation properties.
    Two sets of samples from these deposits were analyzed and compared. The first set of samples were analyzed as is, without any pre-treatment. The second set of samples were melted in a furnace and then quenched and granulated in the water.
    Both sets of samples were analyzed and compared in terms of their physicochemical, milling and flotation properties. This included the results of chemical and SEM - EDS tests, Bond Work Index in rods and balls mills, milling kinetics and flotation parameters. The analysis and comparison served to draw proper conclusions on the copper recovery of each set of conditions.
