heap leaching recovery

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 as a key technology for recovery of values ...

2016-10-01  Optimally, heap leaching should be a low-cost technology for the recovery of values from low-grade ores, suitable especially for remote mine sites. However, the complexities that govern the leach kinetics are often underestimated, resulting in underperforming heaps.

Heap leaching a stack of gold - MiningFeeds

2018-04-25  Heap leaching can take anything from a couple of months to several years. In the case of gold recovery, heap leaching generally requires 60 to 90 days to leach the ore, compared to the 24 hours required by a conventional agitated leach process. Gold recovery is also usually only 70% compared with 90% recovery in an agitated leach plant.

Heap Mining Efficiently Leaches Lower Grade Gold from S

As a rule of thumb, one gram per ton of ore can make a profitable heap leach mine. At a 75% gold recovery, it takes 41 tons of ore on the pad to recover one ounce of gold. However, all the material in the mine is not ore. Most mines will have 2-3 tons of waste material to 1 ton of ore.

Although the heap leaching is a low cost-method, it usually has recovery rates of 60-70%, though there are exceptions. It is usually most profitable with low-grade ores. Higher-grade ores are normally put through more complex milling processes where elevated recoveries justify the extra cost. The method chosen depends on the properties of the ore.

Look before you leach: Dynamic Simulation of Heap Leach ...

Heap leaching is a conceptually simple process but has several characteristics that make modelling the flowsheet quite complicated. Fundamentally, it is a slow process. There is a substantial time lag between stacking ore and producing the final product. During this time the soluble inventory builds up and impacts the recovery and solution tenor. An insufficient stacking rate may not be ...

Heap leaching as a key technology for recovery of values ...

Heap leaching technology is finding increasingly widespread application to recover values from low-grade ores, especially in the gold and copper industry. The particular attractiveness of the process is the relatively low-cost recovery of the target metal at site without the need for energy intensive comminution, providing the process can be combined with a selective solution recovery ...

(PDF) Heap leaching as a key technology for recovery of ...

In heap leaching the ore is crushed, usually to below 1 in. (25 mm), and heaps are much more carefully engineered to maximise percolation of leach solution through them. The higher investment in operating the process is offset by significantly higher recoveries (typically N 70%) and the process is applied often to low-to intermediate grade ores.

One of the advantages of heap leaching versus conventional milling and using either carbon-in-pulp (CIP) or carbon-in-leach (CIL) for gold recovery is the lower cost. However, along with that lower cost comes a lower recovery rate. Gold recovery is also usually only about 55% to 75% compared with roughly 90% recovery in an agitated leach plant.

Heap leaching is the method most commonly chosen for copper recovery from oxide ores. An acidic solution is used to leach the metal, dissolving the copper into what is referred to as a pregnant leach solution (PLS). This solution is collected and purified by solvent extraction (SX).
