Zirconium and Hafnium Statistics and Information U.S ...

Zirconium and hafnium are contained in zircon at a ratio of about 50 to 1. Zircon is a coproduct or byproduct of the mining and processing of heavy-mineral sands for the titanium minerals, ilmenite and rutile, or tin minerals. The major end uses of zircon are refractories, foundry sands (including investment casting), and ceramic opacification.

Production of nuclear grade zirconium: A review ...

2015-11-1  Zirconium and hafnium occur most commonly in nature as the mineral zircon (ZrSiO 4) and less commonly as baddeleyite (ZrO 2). In general, the commercial nuclear grade zirconium production route involves ore cracking, Hf separation, calcination, pure chlorination and reduction to the pure metal. The flowsheet is shown in Fig. 1. Zircon is a by ...
