A Copper Hydrometallurgical Plant Dysfunctions Related to Changes in the Feed Mineralogy: Case of ROM Ores from the Mutanda Deposit (DR Congo

The hydrometallurgical processing of copper–cobalt oxide ores in the former Katanga region of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) allows copper to be produced as cathodes and cobalt to be produced as hydroxides. Copper and cobalt are mostly present as malachite and heterogenite, respectively, in the run-of-mine (ROM) ores used as the feed to hydrometallurgical…
