Ammoniacal Percolation Leaching of Copper Ores:

2013-7-18  Abstract. The general feasibility of ammoniacal percolation leaching of copper sulphide ores has been demonstrated. The rates are comparable to those of conventional ferric sulphate-sulphuric acid systems, but without the attendant problems of carbonate or iron dissolution, For the ore column heights studied, the copper leaching rate increased

What Is the Percolation Leaching Process? Xinhai

2020-5-11  The percolation leaching process is a kind of leaching method in which the leaching agent penetrates the fixed ore bed in a top-down or horizontal manner by means of gravity or pressure. It is the key to ensuring the economic benefit of the concentrator to choose the appropriate percolation leaching way.

Metal extraction from ores by heap leaching SpringerLink

Heap leaching low-grade ores has become a major contributor to the extraction of economically important metals, notably copper and gold. The state-of-the-art in heap leaching is reviewed with emphasis on process engineering. Rock leaching, including rock pore diffusion and mineral kinetics, solution flow, and retention in ore heaps during percolation leaching, and bio

Accelerating leaching of copper ore with surfactant and

Accelerating leaching of copper ore with surfactant and the analysis of reaction kinetics. To solve the problem of low permeability and lower extraction rates of high-mud ores, a surfactant was added as a penetrant to the pregnant leaching solution during column leaching tests. On the basis of the theories of physical chemistry and seepage flow

Percolation leaching method Keyes, Harmon E.

It is generally known in metallurgical leaching practice that there is a minimum degree of fineness to which ore particles may be crushed for subsequent percolation leaching. The reason for this is because the leaching column becomes clogged by the fine material, thus preventing the desired rate of solution percolation.
