is particularly detrimental to sulphide heap leaching which operates over much longer time‐spans than oxide heap leaching. Furthermore, iron‐oxy hydroxides are well‐known metal adsorbents that can give rise to scavenging of the copper value in the leach liquor and retard their release into the PLS.

Copper, Lead and Zinc Smelting and Refining

Copper. Copper is mined in both open pits and underground mines, depending upon the ore grade and the nature of the ore deposit. Copper ore typically contains less that 1% copper in the form of sulphide minerals. Once the ore is delivered above the ground, it is crushed and ground to a powdery fineness and then concentrated for further processing.

Both mines are still able to extract around half of their gold using gravity and cyanide leach techniques. However we need to use more elaborate techniques to break down the sulphide rock so that the rest of the gold, copper and silver can be liberated.

Geothermal energy for copper dump leaching (Technical

Geothermal energy could be used to enhance copper and molybdenum recovery in mineral flotation by increasing the kinetics of the flotation process. In another approach, geothermal energy could be used to heat the leaching solution which might permit greater copper recovery using the same residence time in a tailings leach facility.
