Scandium Resources in NatureScandium is found in approximately 800 different minerals. There are very few scandium minerals on their own, due to the fact that they are often part of a symbiosis. You can find many minerals that are scandium-rich, including ilmenite and rare earth ores, wolframite and rare earth magnetite as well as rare earth iron ores, phosphorite, and vanadium-titanium magneticite. The mine contains most of the scandium.
Materials Used in the Production of Scandium Oxide Powder
Scandium oxide is made from waste materials that contain scandium, such as waste residue, soot in metalurgical work, and scandium concentrate after vanadium-titanium magneticite beneficiation.1. The majority of the sandium-containing material is waste that has been left over from tungsten extraction. Scandium oxide 0.05%) can be found in the original ore of wolframite. Scandium oxide is 150600g/t after the extraction. Pretreatment involves dissolving the waste in hydrochloric acids. The resulting ScCl3 solution then becomes the raw material to obtain scandium oxide. 2. A waste liquid containing scandium (mainly after the extraction of titanium form ilmenite) is considered to be a “scadium-containing” fluid. Scandium oxide 15-20g/m3 is the primary raw material to extract scandium dioxide from ilmenite. 3. Scandium-containing soot is mainly the soot from sponge titanium’s chlorination. Pretreatment of the soot results in acid-dissolved scandium liquid, which is used as raw material to extract scandium oxide. 4. Scandium concentrate, mainly from scandium magnetite beneficiation. Sc 27g/t of vanadium magnetite is present, and Sc 112-114g/t after beneficiation. ScCl3 is obtained by dissolving the scandium concentrate in hydrochloric acids. It is used as raw material to extract scandium dioxide.
