:: Improved Heap Leaching Through Optimised Ore Sizes

It has been long recognised that the efficiency of heap leaching is influenced by the size distribution within the ores and the proportion of fines.

Agglomeration to minimise fines is commonplace. However, the optimum agglomeration method and size for maximum recovery is poorly understood.

Significantly improved efficiency may be possible with better understanding. AMIRA, with the University of Utah, has developed project P986 to develop this knowledge base.

Companies interested in supporting this research and accessing the resultant technologies should contact Terry Braden.
