Copper Anode Sludge processing for Gold & Silver

Here is an interesting project for these troubled days..!
In Copper Plants, during electrolysis, pure copper is deposited on the cathode plates and impurities which are soluble and fall to the bottom of the cell as anode mud or sludge.
Gold, like other precious metals (Ag, Pt, Pd), is extracted from the anode sludge created by the electro-refining process
Recovery of these metals from anode slime is economically attractive and also it is environmentally friendly
