A pilot program has started to determine the feasibility of processing and separating precious metal residues from anodic sludge material from Cuprom.
The recovery of gold and silver from anodic slime is carried out in two broad phases:
During the refining of copper, anode slimes are collected from the base of the electrolytic cells. Depending on the sources they are obtained from, there are two different types of slime. The first is produced during the production of copper concentrate, which has a relatively high content of gold, silver, tellurium and selenium, and the second is produced during recycling.
