Oxalates were effectively recycled in PP6 and PP7 campaigns to lower the fresh
reagent requirement. The reagent consumptions in the PP6 and PP7 campaigns
were 36% to 59% lower than PP5. Oxalates were not recycled under the PP5
campaign. In general, oxalic acid consumption ranged from 296 kg/t in PP5 (COMP
B) to 121 kg/t in PP6 (COMP C). When RE oxalates are not recycled, high losses of
REEs may occur in barren PLS.
