Copper Leaching Method - Metallurgist Mineral Processing ...

19.04.2019  The actual cost of copper produced by leaching methods is, however, not of so much importance as the fact that ore may be handled in this manner which is not amenable to reduction by any other process. A siliceous oxidized copper ore carrying from 1.5 to 2.0 per cent, metal may be profitably leached under favorable conditions; there are no other metallurgical

Acid Leaching - Copper Ore Treatment Method

23.05.2017  COPPER LEACHING. The application of hydrometallurgical leaching to oxide and combined oxide and sulfide ores depends mainly on obtaining solvent at low cost and in holding initial plant costs within feasible limits. Dilute sulfuric acid-ferric sulfate has been found to be an excellent solvent for oxide minerals as well as for such sulfide forms as chalcocite and covelite

The first step in the process was to ascertain the amount of copper that was contained in the ore, in order that, after leaching, we could figure the ex-­ traction. This was carefully done by the Iodide Method. We made eight or ten determinations, taking between three and five grams of the ore to test each time, and

Improvements in Copper heap leaching by use of wetting agents

Modelling copper heap leaching Leaching implies a reaction between solid particles and a liquid phase. The “shrinking core” model describes the leaching process of an idealized oxide copper ore particle [1]. This particle reacts from the surface inwards. During the continuous reaction a leached rim is formed, composed mainly of gangue. The rim encloses a shrinking unleached

Copper Heap Leaching SX-EW Slideshow - MineralsEd

A leaching solution of weak sulphuric acid is sprayed over the rock on the pad and allowed to percolate through to the base. As the solution passes through the heap, the copper-bearing mineral dissolves into solution. The copper-bearing solution accumulates in the collection pond and is piped to a nearby SX-EW plant for metal recovery. Leaching

How Hydrometallurgy and the SX/EW Process Made Copper the ...

A second technology that has aided in the production of environmentally clean copper is that of bacterial leaching or bioleaching. This is used as an adjunct to the SX/EW process in situations where sulfide copper minerals must be leached. Modern commercial application of bacterial leaching began in the 1950s at Kennecott's Bingham mine near Salt Lake City, Utah. It was

Recovery of Copper by Solution Mining Methods - Arizona

Solution mining of copper replicates a natural process of dissolution and reprecipitation that has occurred for millions of years and continues today. Known as supergene enrichment, this natural process has been observed at many of the world’s copper deposits. It occurs when hypogene (i.e. primary) ores, containing sulfide minerals such as pyrite (FeS 2), chalcopyrite (CuFeS 2)

Ammonia leaching was based on the extraction of easy to leach copper from chalcocite and bornite (70–80% of copper), extraction of chalcopyrite (and the majority of gold and silver) from the leaching residue by flotation for processing in the smelting plant, with the removal of pyrite, containing almost 70% of the sulphur of the original concentrate. The plant was closed in 1977
