copper ore crushing heap leaching

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

PRETREATMENT OF COPPER ORE PRIOR TO HEAP LEACHING

Pretreatment of copper ore prior to heap leaching includes crushing and agglomeration processes which were studied in this thesis research. Crushing is a high energy consuming process. In mining operations generally jaw and gyratory crushers are used for primary crushing and cone crushers are used for secondary crushing.

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.

Copper Mining and Processing: Processing Copper Ores

This process uses aqueous (water-based) solutions to extract and purify copper from copper oxide ores at ordinary temperatures, usually in three steps: heap leaching, solvent extraction, and electrowinning. Heap Leaching and Solvent Extraction of Oxide Ore. Heap Leaching is the process of using percolating chemical solutions to leach out metals.

Dump and Heap Leaching HydroJex

Crushed ore heap leaching involves reducing ROM ore to a predetermined optimal target size distribution, sometimes with topsizes as small as 12.5 mm (0.5 in.) or even finer through multiple stages of crushing. Crushing increases surface area and mineral liberation which, in turn, result in higher, more economic recovery.

4 Factors Influence the Effect of Heap Leaching Method

Generally, the smaller the ore size, the shorter the leaching time and the higher the leaching rate. In practice, the ore particles that have been crushed to 5~20 mm are sent to heap leached. If the content of ore fines -200 mesh exceeds 35%, the conventional heap leaching method will cause the surface of the ore heap to form a groove flow
