Hydrometallurgy is the chemical tool kit for extracting metals from their ores, or indeed from concentrates or waste materials.  Conceptually, it has an almost unlimited range of applications.  As a result, it is becoming an increasingly important cornerstone of the sector.

Issues

  • Energy efficient/water efficient reactions
  • Lower grades of ore
  • Impurities/complex mineralogy
  • Solvent extraction
  • Environmental management
  • In situ leaching/closed loop systems
  • Catalysis
