Learn About the Heap Leaching Process Mining Techniques

Jan 10, 2019Heap leach mining is an industrial hydrometallurgical process, where the metal contained in an ore body is extracted by dissolution. The target mineral is leached with an aqueous solution whereby the mineral is dissolved into what is called a "pregnant" solution which, is then captured and later recovered downstream in the processing line.

In Situ Leach Mining (ISL) of Uranium World Nuclear

There are two operating regimes for ISL, determined by the geology and groundwater. If there is significant calcium in the orebody (as limestone or gypsum, more than 2%), alkaline (carbonate) leaching must be used. Otherwise, acid (sulfate) leaching is generally better. In this case the leach solution is at a pH of 2.5-3.0, about the same as vinegar.
