Heap leaching is a conceptually simple process but has several characteristics that make modelling the flowsheet quite complicated. Fundamentally, it is a slow process. There is a substantial time lag between stacking ore and producing the final product. During this time the soluble inventory builds up and impacts the recovery and solution tenor. An insufficient stacking rate may not be apparent until 6 months later,

Copper Heap Leaching SX-EW Slideshow

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.

Precious Metal Heap Leach Design and Practice

In the simplistic sense, heap leaching involves stacking of metal-bearing ore into a "heap" on an impermeable pad, irrigating the ore for an extended period of time (weeks, months or years) with a chemical solution to dissolve the sought-after metals, and collecting the leachant ("pregnant solution") as it percolates out from the base of the heap.

The leaching period is 2 – 4 days and gold recovery lies in the order of 70 – 80%. The cheapest but slowest technique is heap leaching. It is a process usually applied to low grade gold ore. Basically the ore is piled to a given height on an inclined impermeable surface, a so called leach pad.
