The heap leaching of copper ores is an example of such a trend, where heap leaching was initially applied only to the acid leaching of oxide ores. The most important factors to be considered in oxide heap leaching are the copper dissolution, acid consumption, and gangue chemistry. The rate at which acid can be supplied to the heap is

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.

Leaching Practices at Mantos Blancos

The main oxide copper minerals present in Mantoverde ore are brochantite, malachite, chrysocolla and pitch limonite; while in Mantos Blancos oxide ore, atacamite is the predominant species with a minor amount of chrysocolla. Mantos Blancos oxide plant was commissioned in 1960 with a capacity of 6,000 t/d using vat leaching to dissolve the copper.

Reasons for Copper Ore Sorting cont. • Pre-concentrate feed into high-grade and low-grade stockpiles: Optimize multiple process streams i.e. send ore to either mill, heap leach or smelter. Allows smaller mills to be built or increase capacity of an existing mill. Manage ore blending programs more effectively.

Heap Leaching: Extending Applications E & MJ

While heap leaching for copper was under discussion in the 1920s, he said, leaching of residual material in old stopes began in 1923 at Bisbee, Arizona, USA. This was followed by the in-situ leaching of ore left over from block caving at several mines, including Ray and Miami; in the late 1950s, Miami created a block-cave stope specifically for

metal ores (<1% copper, <1g/ton gold, < 0.5% nickel) previously considered uneconomical, became feasible with introduction of heap leaching technologies (Marsden, 2009). In consideration of ore types, a generalized diagram showing the applicable ore beneficiation technologies for oxide and sulphide ores versus ore grade is given in Figure 2.
