SX-EW (solvent extraction and electrowinning) KGHM ...

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 ...

Solvent extraction and electrowinning - Wikipedia

Solvent extraction and electrowinning (SX/EW) is a two-stage hydrometallurgical process that first extracts and upgrades copper ions from low-grade leach solutions into a solvent containing a chemical that selectively reacts with and binds the copper in the solvent. The copper is extracted from the solvent with strong aqueous acid which then deposits pure copper onto cathodes using an ...

How can you increase the copper recovery of your SX-EW ...

An alternative to recycling the bleed is to electrowin the copper from the bleed; this low copper, high acid solution can then be sent to either the raffinate for higher leach recovery, or E1 for higher SX recovery. When using the untreated EW bleed (approximately 5 g/L copper) to leach the ore, it is less effective than a copper-free leach ...

Copper recovery by L/SX/EX in 1968 In 1968 there were only two widely practiced copper leaching processes using dilute sulphuric acid. The first process, vat leaching of high-grade copper oxide ore followed by EW of copper from the leach solution, produced low quality copper cathode at relatively high cost. In 1968 the tonnage of high-
