BKM Copper Project is located in Central Kalimantan, Indonesia. The ore is amenable to acid leaching and the proposed development is based on conventional open-pit mining, heap leaching, solvent extraction (SX) and electrowinning (EW) to produce copper cathodes.
Asiamet engaged NewPro to undertake a Definitive feasibility study for the BKM Copper Project.
Before commencing the heap leach DFS, NewPro also studied four different process options;
Case 1 – Heap Leaching
Case 2 - GalvanoxTM
Case 3 - GalvanoxTM with secondary pyrite concentrate product
Case 4 – Pyrite/Copper bearing mineral flotation concentrate transported by slurry pipeline
