the chemistry of copper heap leaching

Heap Leaching an overview ScienceDirect Topics

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.

Heap leaching Wikipedia

Heap leaching is an industrial mining process used to extract precious metals, copper, uranium, and other compounds from oreusing 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 ore, whereas in situ mining lacks these liners and pulls pregnant solution up to obtain the minerals. Heap leaching is widely used i

THE GEOCHEMISTRY OF COPPER LEACHING

Mar 12, 2012 The degree to which the ore and gangue minerals are soluble in the leach solution and the rates at which they dissolve determine copper leach kinetics and acid consumption. Of the common rock-forming minerals, only quartz, rutile, and zircon are insoluble in leach solutions. Flow Through Mineral Reactor

The heap leaching of nickel laterites is problematic in that the GAC is around 500 kg/t and this has also restricted the commercialisation of nickel heap leaching. Typical GAC for a copper heap leach is 10 to 40 kg/t H2SO4 acid and GLC for a gold heap leach is 0.3 to 1 kg/t NaCN.

Ans: The heap leaching is a kind of industrial mining process which is useful for the extraction of precious metals, uranium, copper and several other compounds from their respective ores. This is done with the help of a series of chemical reactions that tend to absorb specific minerals and tend to re-separate them once they undergo a division

Heap leach pads constitute a common practice in the mining industry. In their design and management it is not common to take into account criteria based on coupled hydro-mechanical-chemical (HMC) processes, and these are of paramount importance for two reasons: (i) they could play an important role on the physical stability of the pad and; (ii) they are keys for the metallurgical efficiency
