heap leaching copper extraction:

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 t

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.

Improvements in Copper heap leaching by use of wetting

leaching conditions must aim on shorter leaching times as well as on a higher copper extraction rate, thus to an increase in copper productivity and lower costs per ton of copper. Because leaching processes include interactions between solid (ore) and liquid (sulfuric acid) phases such improvements may be achieved by the use of wetting agents.

Nov 29, 2019  Since the middle of the 16th century, heap leaching was practised in Hungary for copper extraction. In 1969, gold heap leaching began in Nevada (birthplace of modern heap leaching) and in the middle of the 20th century, the United States Bureau of Mines began applying this technology. Gold and silver heap leaching first began at Cortez in 1969.
