2000-12-4 · Cadmium occurs primarily as sulfide minerals in zinc, lead–zinc, and copper–lead–zinc ores. Beneficiation of these minerals, usually by flotation or heavy-media separation, yields concentrates which are then processed for the recovery of the contained metal values. Cadmium follows the zinc with which it is so closely associated.
