It is the only known benign alkaline leach system which allows the simultaneous leaching of copper and precious metals an can be applied to minerals throughout the geometallurgical spectrum associated with Cu and CuAuAg deposits. Conditions for leaching are mild (20 176;C60176;C, atmospheric pressure).
Reported at a cutoff grade of 0.175 CuEq%; assuming an open pit extraction scenario, a copper of US$3.25 per pound and a molybdenum price of US$ 9.00 per pound, and a metallurgical recovery of 90 percent for copper and 80 percent for molybdenum.

Copper heap and dump leaches in southern Spain were common by about 1700. Gold and silver heap leaching began with the first Cortez heap leach in 1969. 100. To provide a basis for this chapter, technical and/or cost data were gathered from 37 of these few million tonnes at a grade of 7 grams of gold per tonne (0.22 oz/ton). Heap leach

Quoted operating costs (2002), based on current technology for leaching dumps and inplace ore, are between US$0.18 and US$0.22 per pound of cathode copper, which are competitive with the unit costs of smelting/refining. Heap leaching has the additional cost of mining and transporting to the leach pad.
3 Cash costs per ounce, allin sustaining costs per ounce, C1 cash costs and allin sustaining costs per pound are nonGAAP financial performance measures with no standard meaning under IFRS. For further information please refer to endnote 1.
Copper recovery using leach/solvent extraction/electrowinning technology 65 (Figure 2) and a catalytic amount of LIX 63, was copper from the leach solution, produced low quality copper cathode at relatively high cost. In 1968 the tonnage of high from the bottom of the heap was collected in a pond created

Water Consumption at Copper Mines in Arizona by Dr. Madan M. Singh The oxides are exposed to acid in a heap leach; this liberates the copper ions and the resulting solution is then sent to the solvent extraction (SX) process followed by It takes about 500 gallons of water to treat a ton of copper (0.25 gallons/lb of Cu) in the
The largest copper heap leach operations are in Chile, Peru, and the southwestern United States. Although the heap leaching is a low costprocess, it normally has recovery rates of 6070%, although there are exceptions. (as high as 1,000 kg of acid per tonne of ore, but 500 kg is more common.)
The economic viability of these mines depends on keeping operating costs per tonne of ore below the payable revenue per tonne. For these mines, energy is a significant fraction of operating cost and the main source of GHG emissions.
For 1999 and beyond, mining cost per ton is expected to be in the range of $0.85 to $0.90. The depth of the pit and the height of the heap leach pad impact the truckhaul cycle time and unit cost, which is the most significant component of mining costs.

Heap leaching of gold and silver ores is conducted at approximately 120 mines worldwide. Heap leaching is one of several alternative process methods for treating precious metal ores, and is selected primarily to take advantage of its low capital cost relative to other methods. Thirtyseven different heap leach operations with a total production of 198

The lixivant consumption and or GLC rates and thus the unit cost per tonne of ore; 2. Typical GAC for a copper heap leach is 10 to 40 kg/t h4SO4 acid and GLC for a gold heap leach is 0.3 to 1 kg/t NaCN. the recovery of native metals from the fines or to treat the higher grade fines separately in an mill / agitation leach. 3. The Art of
The rest comes from mines using dump or heap leaching, solvent extraction and electrowinning to produce cathode copper. Most copper mines are large, low grade, open pits. Typically, these operations treat over 50,000 t/d of ore with copper head grades below 1%, and sometimes as low as 0.3%.
Copper extraction refers to the methods used to obtaining copper from typically as the endstage of a heapleach operation. copper and charge for this service via treatment charges (TCs) and refining charges (RCs). The TCs are charged in US$ per tonne of concentrate treated and RCs are charged in cents per pound treated, denominated in
GoGold's heap leach facility was financed and built within 18 months and production began in June 2014. The main byproduct which is leached along with the silver is copper. The amounts of copper leached have been within the expected range and have not overly impacted cyanide consumption. Average Cost per Tonne Mining and
