Copper SX-EW Course in Zambia - Hydrometallurgy

copper sx ew

IMPROVE THE PERFORMANCE OF YOUR Cu SX EW

 

WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND

Solvent extraction-electrowinning continues to transfor m the performance of copperoperations. This 4-day course is designed to provide technical staff with the knowledge, skills and insight required to understand copper solvent extraction and electrowinning, to improve plant operations, and to improve control of operations.
Attendees will practice the principles of their learning through case studies and discussion groups, using specific practical examples.
