Abstract Scope Increasing demands for copper and copper sulphate with diverse industrial applications has prompted the development of a low-cost and eco-friendly technique as a substitute for conven-tional ore treatments by reduction-roasting route, requiring high energy consumption. In this study, hydrometallurgical treatment of a Nigerian malachite through acid leaching and solvent extraction was investigated. The effects of leachant concentration, reaction temperature and par-ticle size were examined. The rate of ore dissolution increased with increasing H2SO4 concentra-tion, temperature and decreasing particle size. At optimal leaching conditions, 96.2% of the ore reacted with 2.0 mol/L H2SO4 solution at 75 ░C within 120 minutes. The calculated activation energy was 25.41 kJ/mol, supporting the proposed diffusion controlled mechanism for the disso-lution process. The leach liquor at optimal conditions was further beneficiated to obtain high grade industrial copper sulphate using a combinations of solvent extraction and precipitation methods, leading to 98% process efficiency.
