Heap leaching Wikipedia

The mined ore is usually crushed into small chunks and heaped on an impermeable plastic or clay lined leach pad where it can be irrigated with a leach solution to dissolve the valuable metals. While sprinklers are occasionally used for irrigation, more often operations use drip irrigation to minimize evaporation, provide more uniform distribution of the leach solution, and avoid damaging the exposed mineral. The solution then percolates through the heap and leaches both the target and other minerals. This process, called the "leach cycle," generally takes from one or two months for simple oxide ores (e.g. mo

PRETREATMENT OF COPPER ORE PRIOR TO HEAP LEACHING

Pretreatment of copper ore prior to heap leaching includes crushing and agglomeration processes which were studied in this thesis research. Crushing is a high energy consuming process. In mining operations generally jaw and gyratory crushers are used for primary crushing and cone crushers are used for secondary crushing. During the past couple of decades High Pressure Grinding Roll (HPGR

Heap Leaching an overview ScienceDirect Topics

2.1 Leaching. Most copper leaching is done by piling broken ore (∼0.5% Cu) into flat-surface, 3–10m high, 10 4 –10 5 m 2 heaps of ore and then sprinkling dilute sulfuric acid lixiviant on to the heap surface. The lixiviant trickles down through the heap and leaches copper from its minerals to produce a pregnant leach solution containing 1–5kg Cum −3.

Particle size distribution for copper heap leaching

In the heap leaching process, inclusions of the valuable minerals (copper bearing minerals) are to be dissolved from ore particles. The copper bearing minerals have some unknown grain size distribution, texture/exposure, and spatial distribution in the ore particles. In order to build a heap for copper recovery, the mined ore is crushed to an

Evaluation of stucco binder for agglomeration in the heap

Copper ore Heap leaching abstract It is known that the presence of excess fines in heap leaching operations may cause low recovery due to reduced heap permeability and/or channeling of lixiviant flow. These problems are mitigated to some extent by agglomeration pretreatment prior to heap leaching. Sulfuric acid leach solution is the conven-tional liquid bridge used for copper ore

Investigation of Affecting Parameters on Heap Leaching

economics of heap leaching are strongly governed by the trade-off between the slow rate and limited extent of leaching from large particles and the cost of crushing finer [12]. Most affecting parameters on copper extraction in heap leaching method are ore and gangue mineralogy, size

Dump and Heap Leaching HydroJex

Crushed ore heap leaching involves reducing ROM ore to a predetermined optimal target size distribution, sometimes with topsizes as small as 12.5 mm (0.5 in.) or even finer through multiple stages of crushing. Crushing increases surface area and mineral liberation which, in turn, result in higher, more economic recovery. Crushed ores are often agglomerated to bind fines and clays with the

Heap Leaching: Is it something that could be an

29/11/2019· Heap leaching is an industrial mining process used to extract precious metals, copper, uranium, and other compounds from ore using a series of chemical reactions that absorb specific minerals and re-separate them after their division from other earth materials. Similar to in situ mining, heap leach mining differs in that it places ore on a liner, then adds the chemicals via drip systems to
