Heap Leach Pad Construction Operation and Performance Heap

Heap leaching is the process to extract precious metals like gold silver copper and uranium from their ore by placing them on a pad a base in a heap and sprinkling a leaching solvent such as cyanide or acids over the heap This process dissolves the metals and they collect at the bottom of the pad The metal is then Heap leaching is the process to extract precious metals like gold silver copper and uranium from their ore by placing them on a pad a base in a heap and sprinkling a leaching solvent such as cyanide or acids over the heap This process dissolves the metals and they collect at the bottom of the pad The metal is then
