THE HEAP LEACH PROBLEM . Heap leaching is a conceptually simple process but has several characteristics that make modelling the flowsheet quite complicated. Fundamentally, it is a slow process. There is a substantial time lag between stacking ore and producing the final product. During this time the soluble inventory builds

Jun 01, 1992 Many model variables are not adequately known. This review paper emphasizes underlying simulation principles and their practical limitations. A broad perspective of simulation in heap leaching is taken, rather than focusing exclusively on a particular model.

Jul 01, 2015 As stated above, the computer simulation of the leaching process allows us to see what happens with the substances – participants in the thickness of the heap. The Fig. 2 shows the fixed moment of time equal to 500 hours from the beginning of the heap irrigation, as

Dynamic Simulation Heap Leaching Module. Dynamic modeling of flowsheets has been possible for many years, but METSIM ® has not been widely employed in that role. Other dynamic software simulation packages exist, which are targeted more towards the chemicals industry. These packages use systems of differential and algebraic equations (DAEs ...

SIMULATION HEAP LEACHING MODULE Dynamic simulation capability is being added to each unit operation as there is a demand for it; all operations concerned in heap leaching have already been provided with dynamic simulation. The heap leach module performs mass balances around the heap leach process including chemical reactions,

The heap leach simulation assuming low external temperatures was repeated using an intermittent leach schedule of one day on followed by one day off. The first simulation assumed that the solution application rate and composition remained the same. The results were surprising as in the first year of the leach, grams of copper recovered per ...

Once the process workflow of heap leaching has been characterized, it is possible to model the heap leach stage sequentially with the Arena simulation software. The update of copper recovery over time is simulated by parametrizing the analytical models retrieved from the literature, and incorporating them into the Arena simulation [ 23 ].

heap leaching, exhibits slow dissolution kinetics. Figure 1 shows four different classes of gold, each one having a different leaching behaviour. One can see that gold can be totally liberated, accessible at the ore surface or through pores. The fourth class contains inaccessible gold which cannot be leached. The differences in leaching ...

Jan 01, 2017 Heap leaching — of crushed or run-of-mine ore — is also commonly applied as a secondary process to treat lower-grade ores from a given deposit, such as at Chuquicamata in Chile, Cerro Verde in Peru and Bagdad in Arizona for copper extraction and at Twin Creeks and Carlin, both in Nevada, for gold.
