OVERVIEW OF GANGUE MINERALOGY ISSUES IN OXIDE

2016-11-29  Copper heap leaching projects are sometimes evaluated without adequate attention to mineralogy, despite the fact that ore and gangue mineralogy is probably the single most important parameter affecting operating costs and recoveries and can change significantly from one area of the resource to another. A wide range of mineralogy issues needs to be

2020-12-1  1. Introduction. Heap leaching is a low-cost, flexible hydrometallurgical process for recovering valuable metals from low-grade ores (Nosrati et al., 2012).In this process, the ore bed must be porous and permeable to permit flow of the leach solution (Lewandowski and Kawatra, 2009a).However, fine particles usually migrate into the porous structures and clog the natural flow paths, because of ...

Copper Heap Leaching SX-EW Slideshow - MineralsEd

2019-2-27  Heap leaching SX-EW is a method of extracting pure copper from oxide ore by placing the crushed ore on a pad in a heap and spraying the leaching solution, sulphuric acid, over the heap. The acid trickles through the heap and dissolves the copper mineral into solution. The leach solution collects at the bottom of the pad in a collection pond.

Solution mining is conveniently divided into three main categories: heap leaching, dump leaching, and in situ leaching. In situ leaching (ISL) involves the application of a specific lixiviant to dissolve en masse minerals within the confines of a deposit or in very close proximity to its original geologic setting.
