The treatment of copper refinery anode slimes

There are numerous viable approaches to the treatment of anode slimes from electrolytic copper refining. Of particular interest in the treatment of slimes are the behavior and recovery of selenium. The understanding of the process chemistry involved in the treatment of anode slimes should be aided considerably by recent work on the formation and characterization of slimes.

High-selenium copper refinery anode slimes form two separate and dynamically evolving series of compounds with increasing electrolysis time. In one, silver is progressively added to non-stoichiometric copper selenides, both those originally present in the anode and those formed subsequently in the slime layer, and in the other, silver-poor copper selenides undergo a dis-continuous ...

2017-12-29  Copper Anodes: In copper processing, a copper anode is an intermediate product from the smelting furnaces which is used as a copper source from which to make copper cathodes during electrolysis. In electrolysis, it is the positive terminal. Oxidation occurs at the anode. The anode is replaced when it’s been eroded too far and risk falling apart.

Mössbauer study of gold in a copper refinery -

1993-4-4  Introduction Copper-refinery anode slimes are abundantly pro- duced during the electrolytic refining of copper. The gold is concentrated in the anode slimes, from which it is recovered as a valuable by-product. In many refiner- ies, the value of the gold by-product is 25 to 50% of that of the produced copper [1,2]. Despite the eco- nomic ...
