Clean TeQ Water Engaged by EnviroCopper to Demonstrate its Unique CLEAN-IX® Metal Recovery Technology
2 December 2021
Clean TeQ Water has been engaged by EnviroCopper to demonstrate its unique CLEAN-IX® metal recovery technology to extract copper from a leachate produced at their Kapunda project in South Australia. CLEAN-IX® could provide substantial benefits to the project due to its ability to produce highly concentrated product streams suitable for final product formation, with substantially lower resource consumption than traditional processes.
EnviroCopper recently won the Premier’s Award for Innovation and Collaboration in the resource sector for their In Situ Recovery (ISR) technique, which aims to minimise the environmental and social impacts of mining. The Kapunda project plans to see a historical mineral deposit revitalised as Australia’s first fractured rock copper ISR installation.
