Selection of Complete Recovery of Precious Metals in the Processing of Copper-Nickel Alloys in Hydrometallurgical Way


Article Preview

This article deals with the key aspects of how to determine the dissolution potential of copper-nickel base alloys containing precious metals in a lab environment and select conditions for their dissolution. The work indicates the composition of the anode under research and presents the dependence graphs of the potentials on time and stress. It also explains the effect of some impurities on the process.
