Cu Leaching Using Regenerated Ferric Sulphate

ies, regenerated ferric sulphate leach processes were proposed for copper sulphide minerals and for zinc sulphide minerals, whereby SO. 2 /O. 2. mixtures were used to regenerate ferric sul-phate, either in-situ (during the leach) or ex-situ (in a separate reactor). Initial results have been presented for copper and zinc sulphide minerals (19,20).

Heap Leaching - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

Most copper leaching is done by piling broken ore (∼0.5% Cu) into flat-surface, 3–10m high, 10 4 –10 5 m 2 heaps of ore and then sprinkling dilute sulfuric acid lixiviant on to the heap surface. The lixiviant trickles down through the heap and leaches copper from its minerals to produce a pregnant leach solution containing 1–5kg Cum −3.
