Moreover, various compounds that are formed naturally from iron ore such as iron chloride, iron hydroxide, iron sulfate, and iron arsenate are anticipated to promote sizeable growth of the iron market over the conjecture period.
In acidic pH, iron hydroxide is dissolved in the solution and in highly alkaline pH values, the produced iron hydroxides are converted into Fe(OH)4-which is more soluble than ferric hydroxide.
The first is when the iron sulfide changes into iron sulphate and the second is when iron sulphate changes into orange iron hydroxide.
Coprecipitation methods [11] such as lanthanum hydroxide [12-14], iron hydroxide [15-17], yttrium hydroxide [18], and magnesium hydroxide [19] are also effective as other preconcentration methods to complement chelating resin technique, because both oxoanion-forming elements and cation-forming trace elements can be concentrated using this method.

Also present were small transparent grey grains (with a distinctly higher lustre) of alkali feldspar that contained tiny metallic hematite flakes and small orange patches, possibly iron hydroxide. When exposed to short-wave UV radiation, the calcite veins fluoresced weak reddish pink, whereas the volcanic glass remained inert (Figure 14).
Normally sulphide minerals react with oxygen and water to produce sulphuric acid and iron sulphide or iron hydroxide. Reaction of pyrite with oxygen and water is discussed by many researchers (Banks et al., 1997; Zaihua et al., 1991; Powell, 1988).
The hexavalent chromium ions enter the solution and are separated from the iron hydroxide precipitate as the sludge is dewatered.
Several methods for hydrogen sulfide removal have been developed including biological fixation process, liquid-phase absorption with either water or NaOH solution, and adsorption on solids such as activated carbon, iron hydroxide or oxide [3-6].
