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

Copper extraction from primary copper sulfide ore from a typical porphyry copper deposit from Antofagasta, Chile, was investigated after leaching with a chloride-ferrous media at two temperatures. The study focused on whether this chemical leaching system could be applied at an industrial scale. Leaching tests were conducted in columns loaded with approximately 50 kg of agglomerated ore; the ...

Copper Mining and Extraction Sulfide Ores

The smelter for sulfide ores produces sulfur dioxide gas. This is scrubbed from the flue gases to make sulfuric acid for leaching copper from oxide ores. Scrubbing sulfur dioxide also protects the environment. For example: FeO(s) + SiO 2 (s)→ FeO.SiO 2 (slag) This is very similar to the removal of impurities in the blast furnace. The liquid ...

In situ recovery of copper sulfide ores: Alternative ...

01/09/2020  Application of ISR to copper extraction has been until now restricted to acid leaching of oxidized copper ore bodies which are naturally fractured and have good permeability, enabling good copper recoveries at low operating costs (Thoreau, 1998; M3 Engineering, 2013; M3 Engineering, 2017). However, copper sulfide ores are normally located at greater depths and within a more consolidated

Copper ore leaching processing - agnqtech

Copper ore leaching processing. The above flowsheet shows a basic copper mine process, from mine to metal. There are two distinct types of copper ore, the sulfide ore and the oxide ore. The sulfide ores are beneficiated in flotation cells, while the oxide ores are generally leached. First the copper ore from a open pit mine is blasted, loaded and transported to the primary crushers. Then the ...

Primary Copper Ore Leaching by Leaching Solution

Copper ore is classified into three groups; primary copper sulfide, copper oxide and secondary copper sulfide. Leaching copper from primary copper sulfide, such as chalcopyrite, with sulfuric acid takes longer time than from copper oxide and secondary copper sulfide. As such, an oxidant is required to extract copper from chalcopyrite. In this study, column leaching tests were carried out using ...

Copper Mining and Processing: Processing Copper Ores ...

The leaching reagent (dilute sulfuric acid) is sprayed through sprinklers on top of the heap pile and allowed to trickle down through the heap, where it dissolves the copper from the ore. The resulting “pregnant” leach solution of sulfuric acid and copper sulfate is collected in a small pool. The copper compound can now be seen at concentrations of between 60-70%.

The curing process involves the addition of a highly concentrated sulfuric acid to the copper ore during agglomeration. Then, chemical reactions already begin prior to irrigation of the heap, transforming the initial copper species into new copper species which are easier to solubilize once the leach solution is provided to top of the heap. The present study aims to provide a means for the ...

Optimization of sulfuric acid leaching of roasted ...

26/08/2020  Chalcopyrite (CuFeS2) is commonly used ore in production of copper, but leaching of this ore is very slow and inefficient due to “passivation” during leaching at atmospheric conditions. In this study, in order to overcome drawbacks of the passivation layers, the concentrate supplied from Eti Bakır A.Ş. Küre Plant in Turkey was roasted at 600 °C for 1 h and after leached.
