Novel LixTRATM leaching technology for copper heap and dump leach processes

The ever-increasing demand for minerals and metals poses major challenges for the mining industry, especially when faced with depleting ore grades and more complex ore mineralogy. The industry is therefore in need of new sustainable extraction.

To meet these challenges in the copper industry, BASF Mining Solutions has developed LixTRA™ Technology for Heap and Dump leach processes. LixTRA™ provides the industry an opportunity to increase metal recovery, reduce mining costs and extend the life of the mine in an environmentally sound and sustainable manner.
