Copper Heap Leaching & SX-EW Slideshow - MineralsEd

2019-2-27 · Heap leaching & SX-EW is a method of extracting pure copper from oxide ore by placing the crushed ore on a pad in a heap and spraying the leaching solution, sulphuric acid, over the heap. The acid trickles through the heap and dissolves the copper mineral into solution. The leach solution collects at the bottom of the pad in a collection pond.

Evaluation of stucco binder for agglomeration in the

2016-12-4 · Copper ore Heap leaching abstract It is known that the presence of excess fines in heap leaching operations may cause low recovery due to reduced heap permeability and/or channeling of lixiviant flow. These problems are mitigated to some extent by agglomeration pretreatment prior to heap leaching. Sulfuric acid leach solution is the conven-
