The problem was the investigation of electrowinning of zinc by using a mercury cathode, employing a neutral solution of zinc sulphate and containing small amounts of zinc, in the order of ten grams zinc per liter and less. The purpose of this study was on the base of the laboratory experiments to investigate the operational data that might possibly be applied in practice or industry.
