Agitation leaching copper production sx ew

LX-SX-EW aims to concentrate the aqueous copper solution from a few g/l to around 40-50 g/l and to eliminate the chloride, ferrous, manganese and other impurities that may cause problems in the downstream electrowinning process. There are six different methods for leaching: heap, dump, in-situ, agitation, autoclave and vat

    SX-EW technology involves leaching (the process of dissolving useful ingredients with a solution) in atmospheric conditions of copper ore heaps by means of diluted sulphuric acid. Folowing leaching, the pregnant leaching solution is transported via a drainage system to the next stage. In an SX-EW reactor, the first process to take place is solvent extraction, which involves setting and

    By the use of the SX/EW process, copper can now be extracted away from the iron and other impurities in solution and further purified and reduced to metallic metal by electrolysis without ever having to be melted. Further, through the use of biooxidation, it is now possible to leach many of the copper sulfide minerals present in the ore
