Tour Description

12380 Horseshoe Way, Richmond, BC, Canada, V7A 4Z1

As part of Teck Resources, CESL focuses on sustainable external and internal growth opportunities, technology transfer and improvement projects. CESL technology can treat a wide range of concentrates through to metal in an environmentally sound manner, including those which are challenged by low-grades and contain deleterious elements. Recent projects include:

  • Economical treatment of arsenic-bearing Cu concentrates yielding LME grade A cathode and highly stable residues
  • Sustainable processing of mercury-bearing Cu concentrates; with mercury deportment to a controlled sulphide product
  • Processing of bismuth-bearing Cu concentrates to improve salability

  • Nickel
  • Extensive testing of bulk concentrates (eg. Cu-Ni) to recover all payable metals
  • Economical treatment of lower grade Ni concentrates; including those with elevated Mg content
  • High recovery of platinum group metals from processing of various Ni- and Ni-Cu concentrates

  • In addition to the proprietary CESL technology, CESL frequently works with partners to evaluate a variety of hydrometallurgical technology applications using its extensive bench, pilot, and demonstration facility in Richmond, British Columbia.
