With Doe Run having closed its Herculaneum smelter in 2013, having found that further environmental upgrades were not economically feasible and that its proposed new electro-winning lead production process too expensive to install, primary lead smelting has increasingly become centered on the Far East --mainly in China and South Korea.
McKeen's experience has allowed him to specialize in the metallurgical industry (for the production of mineral concentrates by crushing, grinding, material and slurry transport, flotation, gravity separation and heavy media separation) and hydrometallurgical industry (for the production of high purity metals and inorganic chemicals by leaching ores/concentrates, solvent extraction, precipitation and electro-winning).
These stockpiles will provide the feed for the Stage 2 solvent-extraction and electro-winning (SXEW) plant for the first three years of operations.
The study evaluated an open-pit, heap leach, solvent extraction, electro-winning project capable of producing 17 000 tonnes per annum of copper with a 11-year mine life.
The T'Boli Project is now fully equipped, including a trained local workforce, a fully constructed and commissioned Carbon-In-Leach (CIL) gold-silver processing plant, gravity concentrator, electro-winning circuit, tailings storage facility and powerhouse.

Domestically, the copper scrap market suffered in the late 20th century as domestic copper smelters and electro-winning refineries were the subject of great scrutiny by the United States EPA.
The USD80m contract, awarded by Phelps Dodge Mining Company, covers the supply of a crusher, conveyor, solvent extraction electro-winning plant and infrastructure for a mine near Safford in Arizona.
The Escondida project includes an open pit mine, in-pit crushing and conveying, covered stock pile, concentrator, the slurry pipeline, a 5-9's (meaning 99.999 percent pure) copper electro-winning plant, a filter plant, bulk concentrate storage and a deepwater ship-loading facility.
Processing will include crushing, agglomeration, heap leaching and electro-winning. Capital costs for a 100,000 oz/y heap leaching operation are placed at $25-30 million; operating costs for a 5,000 t/d ore production rate are estimated at about $8/t.
