Agglomeration technique improves heap leaching process

Jul 05, 2018How agglomeration improves heap leaching. A few key ways in which agglomeration results in improved copper (or other metal) recovery in the leaching process are improved heap permeability, an early start to the leaching process, increased particle penetration and improved particle strength control. Greater heap permeability

Agglomeration Drums in the Heap Leaching Process

A LOOK AT THE HEAP LEACHING PROCESSWHAT IS AN AGGLOMERATION DRUM?CONCLUSIONHeap leaching is a hydrometallurgical approach to ore beneficiation. Upon removal from the ground, mined ore is sent through a crusher to break the ore down into fines. The ore fines are then heaped, into a large pile. This mound is then irrigated with a special solution (referred to as the leachate) that is dependent upon the type of ore being extracted. In the case of copper, sulfuric acid is used, because it reacts with the copper to create Copper Sulfate, a by product that has many poteRead More

Heap leaching

In 2011 leaching, both heap leaching and in situ leaching, produced 3.4 million metric tons of copper, 22 percent of world production. The largest copper heap leach operations are in Chile, Peru, and the southwestern United States. Although heap leaching is a low cost process, it

Agglomeration Heap Leaching AusIMM

Heap leaching is a low capital cost alternative to conventional processing techniques for gold recovery from areas that contain small gold particles in a porous host rock. For successful heap leaching the ores to be leached must maintain good permeability after being stacked into heaps so that the leach solutions can percolate evenly through them.

Heap leaching is used to extract gold, copper, silver, uranium, and iodine. This method was first employed to extract copper at the Bluebird mine in the US in the early 1960s, and then by several gold mines in the western parts of the US a few years later. Since then, heap leaching has been adopted successfully by many mines across the world.

REVIEW OF AGGLOMERATION PRACTICE AND FUNDAMENTALS IN HEAP

Jan 31, 2007ABSTRACT This article reviews agglomeration practices for precious metal and copper heap leaching. Both industries prefer drum to conveyor agglomeration, particularly for clayey ore or ore having a high fines content. Precious metal heap leaching operations opt for cement in a dosage from 2.5 to 10 kg cement/t of ore (520 lb/ton) added to a cyanide solution.
