    Copper Ore Leaching Process

    Heap Leaching Copper Ore with Agglomeration. Crushed copper ore is first typically processed via heap leaching. An effective leaching step is critical to SXEW as it sets the stage for how much copper can be recovered. For this reason the heap leaching step is commonly preceded by agglomeration of the ore in a rotary drum agglomerator

    COPPER(II) EXTRACTION FROM AMMONIA LEACH SOLUTION

    Abstract: Hydrometallurgical processing of copperbearing materials (ores, concentrates, byproducts) is usually done with the use of acidic or ammonia leaching. In the case where a leaching feed material contains significant amounts of carbonate rocks and iron minerals the second method is preferential due to a higher process selectivity. However, it can also be problematic considering ...

    It was observed that leaching of copper was quicker and the corresponding recovery of copper was consistently higher when the ore particle was finer. The recovery of copper measured at different leaching times revealed that the efficiency of the process was better enhanced by refinement of the ore particle size than by increasing the concentration of sulphuric acid in the lixiviant from 60 to ...
