    FWGR COPPER ELUTION CIRCUIT

    JULY 2021
  • DRDGOLD Limited’s Far West Gold Recoveries (FWGR) operation south-west of Johannesburg is currently retreating material reclaimed from the Driefontein No.5 dam.

The reclaimed material contains high levels of copper which competes with gold for cyanide in the leach and co-adsorbes on to activated carbon. Copper and gold is removed from the carbon and subsequently recovered together in the electro winning process.

A consequence has been that gold purity in the bullion was low due to high levels of copper. Copper in bullion incurs penalty charges of between 1 and 5% at refinery level; FWGR has been allocated 98% of its gold production with 2% lost to refining charges.
