Agglomeration technique improves heap leaching

2018-7-5  In the case of heap leaching, agglomeration relies on a binder (typically cement) and tumbling motion to cause coalescence, or the building of fines into larger particles. Agglomeration drums (sometimes referred to as ore drums or agglomerators) are the equipment of choice for agglomerating ore fines in preparation of heap leaching.

Agglomeration technique improves heap leaching

2018-7-5  How agglomeration improves heap leaching. A few key ways in which agglomeration results in improved copper (or other metal) recovery in the leaching process are improved heap permeability, an early start to the leaching process, increased particle penetration and improved particle strength control. Greater heap permeability

Binders for heap leaching agglomeration SpringerLink

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.

REVIEW OF AGGLOMERATION PRACTICE AND

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.
