Heap Leaching Basics

How Heap Leaching Works. As seen in the flow chart below (figure 1), the ore, after being removed from the ground, is crushed down into fine particles. Traditionally, the fine particles would typically go from crushing straight to a heap, where leaching solution would be applied, and the metal would leach …

The heap leaching of copper bearing ores is improved by using sodium nitrate as an oxidizing chemical reactive in a sulphuric acid leaching solution. In particular, the ore is crushed to <6 mm and stored in heaps less than twelve meters high. The heaps are irrigated with a dilute solution consisting essentially of sulphuric acid and sodium nitrate to produce a leach product.

Heap Leaching

Heap leaching is a low-cost method that is most suitable for treatment of low-grade materials that do not justify the higher costs of grinding and agitation leaching. Ores can be treated either at a run-of-mine size or as crushed material, with the optimum size determined as a trade-off between gold recovery and crushing …

Cost Efficient Crushing Trial for Heap Leach

Since this is a test heap I would highly recommend agglomerating especially at the crush size you are looking at. You will need to add cement and water to the material and find a way to agglomerate it - you can do this using the CV if you have enough transfer points. Make sure you let the material cure a few days before leaching starts.

Heap leaching

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 the ...
