Development of SX-EW Process for Copper

2007-4-25  SX-EW Kchnology is a two step process. First, the metal in the pregnant (leach) solution is extracted using an organic reagent (solvent) and stripped from the solvent in a purified state using concentrated acid. Second, the metal is recovered from the acid solution as high purity cathode copper

SX-EW copper and the technology cycle - ScienceDirect

2002-9-1  Traditional copper processing is termed pyrometallurgy as it involves high temperature smelting. In contrast, SX-EW is a hydrometallurgical process involving the dissolution and reprecipitation of copper from solution. There are three fundamental steps to SX-EW: ore leaching, solvent extraction, and electrowinning.

Development of SX-EW Process for Copper

This paper reviews the progress made to date for processing copper oxide and sulfide ores through the application of Solvent Extraction-Electrowinning (SX-EW) process technology. SX-EW Kchnology is a two step process. First, the metal in the pregnant (leach) solution is extracted using an organic reagent (solvent) and stripped from the solvent in a purified state using concentrated acid.

Benefits of Agglomeration in an SX-EW Process for

The Solvent Extraction Electrowinning (SX-EW) process offers a cost-effective, low impact way to process previously unprocessable or uneconomic deposits of copper. Combined with heap leaching and agglomeration, the effectiveness of this process is further increased. While the SX-EW process has its roots in copper and is most well-known in this ...

What is an SX/EW plant? Florence Copper

2016-3-24  SX/EW technology was initially developed in Miami, Arizona, approximately 45 miles northeast of Florence, and several SX/EW facilities are scattered throughout Arizona today. Once copper laden solution, also known as pregnant leach solution (PLS) is recovered from wells on the Florence Copper property, it goes for processing at the SX/EW plant.
