Blister copper (content of 99% copper) was prepared in advance as a thick plate, pure copper flakes as a cathode, with Sulfuric Acid (H2SO4) and copper sulfate (CuSO4) mixture as electrolyte. After power is applied, copper dissolves from the anode into copper ions (Cu) and moves to the cathode. Electrons will be obtained upon reaching the cathode and pure copper (also known as Electrolytic Copper) will be deposited at the cathode. Blister copper impurities in lively copper and zinc with copper will be dissolved as ions (Zn and Fe). Since these ions are more difficult to precipitate than copper ions, electrolysis can be avoided by appropriately adjusting the potential difference during electrolysis. Than the inactive copper impurities such as gold and silver deposition in the bottom of the cell. The copper plate so produced is called "electrolytic copper" and of high quality and can be used to make electrical products. Sediment in the bottom of the cell called "anode mud", rich in gold and silver, is a very valuable material, with high economic value.
