Fenix conducted laboratory trials at Sepon mine site for LXML, followed by extensive on site pilot studies and a feasibility study to recover copper from the site process tails using single stage RIP from highly viscous 40% solids tailings.
Project Activities included:
- Laboratory testwork to define optimal resin type, resin %, residence time and operating conditions
- Preliminary economic evaluation to justify progress to pilot scale
- Design, install and operation of pilot site on site, conducted in two campaigns spanning 3 months of on site testing using real plant pulps.
