Reviews: Book Description
Hardbound. The Principles and Practice of Leaching focuses on advances in the leaching of metals from various ores and concentrates. The articles presented in this volume represent thirteen countries scattered through five continents. This is a reflection of the international effort being expended to advance the theory and practice of leaching. A range of topics related to leaching are included in the book e.g. copper and nickel leaching; zinc leaching; gold and silver leaching; biological and heap leaching. Within these topics there is evidence of much progress in understanding the nature of leaching processes and the applying of new ideas to commercial practice. The design of commercial leaching processes through advanced mathematical modelling is also emphasized.
