Evaluation of stucco binder for agglomeration in the heap ...

2016-12-4  For heap leaching operations, the use of cost effective bindersfor agglomeration is being considered to prevent agglomeratebreakdown and to limit the migration of fines. Copper heap leach-ing operations frequently require a high level of acid, which makesthe pH of the heap leach solution very acidic. A binder in copperheap leaching should withstand the very acidic environment andshould not interfere with maintenance of a high bacterial popula-tion survival (Lewandowski et al., 2010). Reactions of the binderand the agglomeration solution may occur during agglomeration,

Agglomeration Drums in the Heap Leaching Process

Heap leaching, a process by which metals such as gold and copper are recovered from ore, has long been a method of choice in ore beneficiation, with applications growing all the time.. While this process has proven to be efficient, often chosen for its cost-effectiveness, the efficiency of the heap leaching process can be further improved through the addition of an agglomeration drum.

ABSTRACT This article reviews agglomeration practices for precious metal and copper heap leaching. Both industries prefer drum to conveyor agglomeration, particularly for clayey ore or ore having a high fines content. Precious metal heap leaching operations opt for cement in a dosage from 2.5 to 10 kg cement/t of ore (5–20 lb/ton) added to a cyanide solution.

Binders for heap leaching agglomeration Semantic Scholar

Agglomeration techniques are widely used by industry to form fine particles into larger masses that are easier to handle and process. One area where agglomeration is potentially useful is in heap leaching operations. Without agglomeration, fine particles travel through the heap, clogging the spaces between the larger particles and resulting in poor leach solution flow.
