Heap Leaching of Copper Ores – State of the Science

2019-1-1 · Heap leaching is practised in three main types of applications: sulphuric acid leaching of copper oxide ores, cyanide leaching of gold ores as well as the oxidative acid leaching of secondary copper sulphide ores, usually with the assistance of certain microorganisms and, more recently, in the presence of chlorides (CaCl2, sea water).

2010-9-5 · Heap leaching of oxidized, complex, and waste copper ores of the Volkovskoe deposit is considered. Based on the results of an investigation, the preliminary granulation of milled ore with sulfuric acid (25–75 kg/t ore) is recommended. Introduction of this procedure leads to a decrease in the leaching time by 15–30% and allows one to obtain solutions more concentrated by copper. For 90 ...

Abstract Heap leaching of malachite–atacamite ores with high silica gangue using sulphuric acid is reported. The base metals were present in the ores in copper rich nodules with a network of fine strings rich in cobalt and manganese along the quartz grain boundaries. It was observed that leaching of copper was quicker and the corresponding recovery of copper was consistently higher when the ...
