Agglomeration of fine-sized copper ore in heap

2020-12-1  Agglomeration through geopolymerization can produce agglomerates suitable for acid heap leaching, which can solve the permeability problem of low-grade copper ore with high fine particles or clays content in heap leaching. Future research will consider the impact of agglomeration conditions based on geopolymerization on heap leaching.

Agglomeration technique improves heap leaching

2018-7-5  Copper heap leaching with agglomeration. Heap leaching relies on a leaching agent moving through a bed of heaped ore to extract the metallic components: Crushed ore is stacked on a leaching pad and irrigated with the leaching agent. The leaching agent chemically reacts with the metal in the ore to dissolve the copper

Agglomeration Drums in the Heap Leaching Process

The heap leaching approach to ore beneficiation is a growing trend in the mining industry, with applicability to various metals outside of copper and gold. Agglomeration is a valuable tool in maximizing recovery during the heap leaching process. FEECO has been a leader in the agglomeration industry for over 65 years and provides agglomeration drums to heap leaching operations around the world. Our

Evaluation of stucco binder for agglomeration in the

2011-7-1  Copper heap leaching operations frequently require a high level of acid, which makes the pH of the heap leach solution very acidic. A binder in copper heap leaching should withstand the very acidic environment and should not interfere with maintenance of a high bacterial population survival (Lewandowski et al., 2010). Reactions of the binder and the agglomeration solution may occur during agglomeration, transport, and stacking prior to irrigation for heap leaching.

2009-5-16  When this happens, solution flows around sections of the heap, leaving them un-leached or only partially leached, which lowers overall recovery. Agglomeration is one method which is being used to resolve this problem. Agglomeration causes the smaller particles to adhere to the surfaces of the coarser ore particles, which prevents fines from migrating. However, current practice is to agglomerate the ore

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.

Evaluation of stucco binder for agglomeration in the heap

2017-6-21  Agglomeration Liquid bridge Copper ore Heap leaching abstract It is known that the presence of excess fines in heap leaching operations may cause low recovery due to reduced heap permeability and/or channeling of lixiviant flow. These problems are mitigated to some extent by agglomeration pretreatment prior to heap leaching.

Binders for heap leaching agglomeration SpringerLink

Agglomeration techniques are widely used by industry to form fine particles into larger masses that are easier to handle and process. One area where agglomeration is potentially useful is in heap leaching operations. Without agglomeration, fine particles travel through the heap, clogging the spaces between the larger particles and resulting in poor leach solution flow.

Effect of compaction on binder performance in

Heap leaching efficiency is reduced by poor solution flow characteristics (channeling and ponding), which result from compaction and fines migration. Agglomeration of the ore can prevent compaction and immobilize fines, but copper leaching requires an acid-resistant binder to stabilize the agglomerates. Until now, there has not been a satisfactory way to evaluate whether a binder was effective
