Low-grade ore was processed using the heap leaching technology. The heaps were arranged on two sites on which approximately 7.2 million tons of low-grade ore have been treated. After the termination of uranium production, wastes from Heap Leaching Site I (next to the mill) have been relocated to WRP III (2.2 million tons) as the first step. Wastes from Heap Leaching Site II (the site was constructed in the
Heap leaching is a tried and tested mining technique enabling the processing of different kinds of ores which could not otherwise be exploited under viable economic conditions. Modern day heap leaching, which has a relatively low level of energy consumption, is for example
Heap leaching (HL)is a flexible and economic mineral processing method, commonly used to extract gold from low-grade gold ores. In this process, ore is firstly crushed to fine particles. By spraying leaching solution to the large piles, the gold-containing solution is leached.

Sep 05, 2018 Using sodium cyanide as gold leaching reagents at the early stage, great economic indicators were achieved in the 300tpd gold heap leaching plant in Mongolia. However, because of the high toxicity of sodium cyanide , it is easy to cause a major accident and leads to unimaginable consequences if not well used and managed.
Nov 11, 2013 Mining industry is heavily invested in mining various precious metals from their natural ore deposits. Copper ore deposits are found across the world and heap leaching of copper has been implemented effectively for years. The ore is broken down to copper ions and elemental sulfur in the heap. Acid plants are used in mines to replenish the raffinate leaching the heaps which consists of

The heap is sprayed with the leaching solution which percolates or flows down through it and dissolving and carrying away the metals as it goes. The solution is then collected, sent to a processing plant for treatment to separate the valuable elements, reconditioned, and sent back to the heap for another cycle.
