Uranium Mining and Milling Wastes An Introduction

In the most cases, sulfuric acid is used as the leaching agent, but alkaline leaching is also used. As the leaching agent not only extracts uranium from the ore, but also several other constituents like molybdenum, vanadium, selenium, iron, lead and arsenic, the uranium must be separated out of the leaching solution.

Heap Leaching Oxide and Sulfide Copper Ores

This study has indicated that higher recoveries and lower acid consumptions can be obtained in heap leaching if the ores are crushed, a high degree of ore solution contact is achieved, an optimum, controlled time of leach is used, and relatively large volumes of low strength solutions are circulated through relatively thin heaps. A controlled form of heap leaching may consist of the following

Cyanide Use in Gold Mining Earthworks

Heap leaching In the open, cyanide solution is sprayed over huge heaps of crushed ore spread atop giant collection pads. The cyanide dissolves the gold from the ore into the solution as it trickles through the heap. The pad collects the now metal impregnated solution which is stripped of gold and resprayed on the heap until the ore is depleted.

Heap leaching

OverviewProcessEnvironmental ConcernsSee alsoExternal links

The mined ore is usually crushed into small chunks and heaped on an impermeable plastic or clay lined leach pad where it can be irrigated with a leach solution to dissolve the valuable metals. While sprinklers are occasionally used for irrigation, more often operations use drip irrigation to minimize evaporation, provide more uniform distribution of the leach solution, and avoid damaging the exposed mineral. The solution then percolates through the heap and leaches both the target and other minerals. This process
