The low. Precious Metal Heap Leach Design and Practice Daniel W. Kappes1 ABSTRACT Heap leaching of gold and silver ores is conducted at approximately mines worldwide. Heap leaching is one of several alternative process methods for treating precious metal ores, and is selected primarily to take advantage of its low capital cost relative to other g: Au & Ag. Methods similar to heap leaching can be employed: dump leaching and vat leaching (vat leaching is the treatment of sand or crushed ore in bedded vats with rapid solution percolation). Typically, heap leaching is chosen for basic financial reasons – for a given situation, it represents the best, or safest, return on by: chalcopyrite ores, it is increasingly becoming a target for heap bio-leaching research and development programs. Satellite dump leaching operations have been operated in the past, but copper recoveries have been low and leach kinetics very slow, possibly due to an accumulation of reaction products at the mineral g: Au & Ag.

Heap leaching is a tried and tested mining technique enabling the processing of different kinds of ores which could not otherwise be exploited under viable economic conditions. Modern day heap leaching, which has a relatively low level of energy consumption, is for exampleFile Size: 1MB. Dump leaching is an industrial process to extract precious metals and copper from ores.. Dump leaching is similar to heap leaching, however in the case of dump leaching ore is taken directly from the mine and stacked on the leach pad without crushing where, in the case of gold and silver, the dump is irrigated with a dilute cyanide solution that percolates through the ore to dissolve gold and Co-products: Tailings, Gangue, Slag, Clinker, Chat, Red . A related technology, dump leaching, is based on the same principles as heap leaching, but usually uses uncrushed run-of-mine (ROM) material, usually containing sulfide minerals, or spent residue Missing: Au & Ag.
