Copper electrowinning from gold plant waste streams

Although the current efficiency for gold electrowinning is expected to decrease as copper codeposits with gold the rate of gold electrowinning should remain the same whether copper is present in the solution or not This is because at a specific applied potential the limiting current for gold Gold is recovered by removing the cathodes from the electrowinning cell and washing with water hoses in a small tank The gold and copper content of the PLS is typically 115 gt and 1100 gt respectively giving a coppertogold ratio of approximately 10001
