The process design of gold leaching and carbon in pulp

After leaching, the pulp is passed over a feed screen to ensure removal of tramp material such as wood chips, plastics and grit larger than about 0.6 mm. This is done to minimize screen blocking in the adsorption section. After feed pre screening the pulp flows through a cascade of well mixed adsorption tanks, typically 6 to 8 in number.

Heap Leaching Basics FEECO International Inc.

Heap leaching is a process through which metals are extracted from the ore in which they are found. Heap leaching is often chosen for its efficiency and cost effectiveness. As the need for resources increase, the heap leaching industry has risen to the occasion with advancements creating an even more efficient leach. One of which, is the process of agglomerating the ore prior to the leach.
