This volume recognizes the growing role of solvent extraction and electrowinning technology in the world copper business. This well-established, remarkable hydrometallurgical achievement fills an important role in our technical ability to extract copper in an efficient and cost-effective way.This proceedings documents the present status of the SX-EW business.
At the core of BASFs solvent extraction offering is an extensive range of LIX oxime extractants that are widely used in the purification of copper leach solutions. Oxime formulations can be tailored to meet individual customer requirements and are suitable for a wide range of leach solutions.

Keywords Copper solvent extraction, dynamic simulation, first principles modeling, mixer-settler. 1. INTRODUCTION During the last two decades the copper leaching, solvent-extraction and electrowinning LXSXEW process has become an important option in the production of copper from low-grade oxidized ore.
Aug 03, 2017 In Chile, the worlds largest copper producer, solvent extraction process SX will soon be used to produce 50 of that countrys copper. Therefore, attention has to be drawn towards the development of suitable methods for leaching copper minerals as well as to developing and refining extraction methods 19 .
Copper solvent extraction has been adapted to deal with the leach liquors from a . number of these flowsheets, some of which have been or are currently operating. The challenges to conventional solvent extraction posed by leach liquors from . concentrates have been discussed by Kordosky 1 and Tinkler 2. Compared with heap
Zn and 0.03 gL Pb. The recovery of copper from this leach solution was curried out by solvent extraction using Lix 984, diluted in Escaid 110. McCabe - Thiele distribution isotherms showed that at pH 1.7 total and selective copper extraction can be realized with o a 1.51 in 3 extraction stages. Stripping of the loaded

Heap leaching amp SX-EW is a method of extracting pure copper from oxide ore by placing the crushed ore on a pad in a heap and spraying the leaching solution, sulphuric acid, over the heap. The acid trickles through the heap and dissolves the copper mineral into solution. The leach solution collects at the bottom of the pad in a collection pond.
The Copper Chloride Leaching Process consists of the following main steps Concentrate repulp. Atmospheric chloride leaching. Leaching residue thickening, filtration, wash, and stabilization. Copper solvent extraction conversion from chloride to sulfate Silver recovery from raffinate. Copper

the copper industry occurred in the first two dec-ades of this century, whenopen pit mining, flo- tation concentration,and the reverberatory smelter were adapted to porphyry copper ores. With the exception of leaching-solvent extrac-tion-electrowinning, the basic methods of cop-per production have remained unchanged for 65 years.

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.

INTRODUCTION The most important operation in hydrometallurgy is leaching of properly prepared raw material by means of a specific chemical compound leaching agent. Usually leaching agents and process conditions are selected depending on the material type
Biological leaching in combination with solvent extraction SX and electrowinning technology has been successfully used to extract copper from low-grade sulfide ores.
equations in Table 1. Currently, leaching in combination with the solvent extraction and electrolysis account for 20 of the total amount of copper produced in the world 19, 20. These methods are most widely used in the USA and Chile. Table 1. Reactions for leaching copper minerals and pyrite
The second step is solvent extraction, in which two immiscible un-mixing liquids are stirred and allowed to separate, causing the cooper to move from one liquid to the other. The pregnant leach solution is mixed vigorously with a solvent. The copper migrates from the leach solution into the solvent.
Jun 01, 2012 Solvent extraction of copper from Pregnant Leach Solution was carried out using LIX 984N-C. Effect of different operational factors such as equilibrium pH pHe, extractant concentration, strip solution concentration, phase ratio was examined to optimize the condition for selective and quantitative extraction of copper.
