Project @ a Glance

Contents on the CD Rom

  • In Copper Plants, during electrolysis, pure copper is deposited on the cathode plates and impurities which are soluble and fall to the bottom of the cell as anode mud or sludge.
  • Gold, like other precious
    metals (Ag, Pt, Pd), is
    extracted from the anode sludge created by the electro-refining process
  • Copper concentrates often contain precious metals like Au and Ag.
  • Recovery of these metals from anode slime is economically attractive and also it is environmentally
  • Temperature plays a critical role on dissolution of gold
    from copper anode slime
  • Recovery of gold from copper anode slimes is a multi-stages process
  • There are more than 650 operating and planned copper mines, 140 smelters and 250 refineries world wide
