There is a substantial time lag between stacking ore and producing the final product. During this time the soluble inventory builds

Optimization Of The Heap Leaching Process Through Changes

The heap leaching process is modeled by production campaigns, whose start is determined by the availability of inventories of the crushing phase, the development of the campaign corresponding to the production of each heap, the limited production capacity due to available physical space, and the downstream storage capacity.The heap leaching process is modeled by production campaigns, whose start is determined by the availability of inventories of the crushing phase, the development of the campaign corresponding to the production of each heap, the limited production capacity due to available physical space, and the downstream storage capacity.Cyanide heap leaching had been proposed as an alternative to the classic crush-mill-float- smelt-refine route for processing platinum group metals PGMs from the Platreef ore body.

Most copper leaching is done by piling broken ore 0.5 Cu into flat-surface, 310m 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 15kg Cum 3.
