Stages copper processing in zambia

The first large-scale copper SX plant in the world was commissioned at the Nchanga Tailings Leach Plant (TLP) in Zambia in 1974, with a daily production of 200 t Cu cathode (Holmes et al., 1976). The mixer–settlers, configured as four trains each comprising three extraction and two stripping (3E–2S) stages, are long and narrow (aspect ratio of 2.9:1)
