A Brief Note on the Heap Leaching Technologies for the

Heap leaching is a low-cost technology used in industrial mining to recover precious metals such as gold and uranium, along with several other highly sought after metals like copper, from their primary resources (ores and minerals). For many decades, there has been a growing demand for heap leaching due to its environmental benefits. Heap leaching provides mining operators with a benign ...

Agglomeration Drums in the Heap Leaching Process

Agglomeration Drums in the Heap Leaching Process

Heap leaching, a process by which metals such as gold and copper are recovered from ore, has long been a method of choice in ore beneficiation, with applications growing all the time.. While this process has proven to be efficient, often chosen for its cost-effectiveness, the efficiency of the heap leaching process can be further improved through the addition of an agglomeration drum.

The heap leaching process is used to extract metals such as gold, copper, and nickel and may be used on low grade ores and mining tailings which are generally considered to be of no commercial value. The process also produces yellowcake, a concentrate leached from uranium ore used in the production of nuclear reactor fuel.
