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

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

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.

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-

Copper Mining and Processing: Processing Copper Ores

Heap Leaching is the process of using percolating chemical solutions to leach out metals. Heap leaching is very commonly used for low-grade ore, which would otherwise not be economical to send through a milling process. Following mining, transporting, and crushing to a consistent gravel or golf ball-size, the crushed ore is piled into a heap on

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.

A Brief Note on the Heap Leaching Technologies for the

Heap leaching is a low-cost technology used in industrial mining to recover precious metals such as gold and uranium, along with several other highly sought after metals like copper, from their primary resources (ores and minerals). For many decades, there has been a growing demand for heap leaching due to its environmental benefits. Heap leaching provides mining operators with a benign
