The leaching, solvent extraction and electrowinning (LX-SX-EW) process is a widely used method in the production of copper from low-grade oxidized ore. Copper is the most common metal to be processed by LX-SX-EW, but the process can also be used to extract, purify and concentrate other metals, such as nickel, cobalt and zinc.

Heap Leaching

With copper, the usual recovery system is SX-EW (solvent extraction/electrowinning) while with gold ores ion exchange using carbon columns can be used to produce a purified solution for gold electrowinning. Agnico-Eagle's Pinos Altos Heap Leach in Mexico Heap leaching operations present lower operating costs compared to typical gold ore milling.

Copper Ore Hydrometallurgy and Pressure .Traduire cette page

Traditional copper hydrometallurgy process typically consists of atmospheric leaching, solvent extraction (SX) and electro-winning (EW). It can produce either copper cathode or copper sulphate crystal. Hydrometallurgy is advantageous in flexible capacity, minimized investment and less complicated equipment, functioning as an effective supplementary to copper pyrometallurgy. Pressure leaching ...

The operations are typically heap and dump leaching, with permanent pads (rather than on–off pads) to minimize operational costs. The SX circuits are often configured for series–parallel or all-parallel operation, as this maximizes copper production by treating high volumes of low-grade PLS. At most sites, the high PLS flow rates give extraction organic-to-aqueous (O:A) flow rate ratios ...
