dynamic pad in leach by gold and silver

Leach Pad sensorgroup

Leach Pad or Heap Leach Pad is a pond for the process where precious metals like gold, silver, copper or uranium is extracted from their ore. The ore is placed on the geomembrane (a base pad) with a heap and sprinkling a leaching solvent. As a solvent can be used cyanide or acids.

HEAP LEACH PAD DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION PRACTICES

The geomembrane lined heap leach pads for the 21 st century have estimated operating time periods of 10 years or more compared to the more typical past gold and silver heap leach operational time periods of 3 to 5 years. Therefore this author believes the current design and construction practices

GOLD AND SILVER

preparation prior to leaching. Gold and silver are dissolved by cyanide in solutions of high pH in the presence of oxygen. There are three general methods of contacting ores with leach solutions: (1) heap leaching, (2) vat leaching, and (3) agitation leaching. Cyanidation heap leaching and vat leaching account for most gold and silver recovery

Next, the leach pad is soaked with the cyanide solution under strict atmospheric conditions. The goal of this step is to dissolve the gold (and sometimes silver) into the solution. The pad is stacked in layers or “lifts”. Depending on the material a lift can be 10 or more meters and the pad

1.1 billion st). The average leach pad area is now about 1 Mm2 (10.7 million sq ft) and projects are in the planning stages for leach pads in excess of 10 Mm2 (107 million sq ft) in Turkey, Burma and Africa. Essentially, all of these are geomembrane lined. Valley leach pad technology was first introduced at the Zortman-Landusky gold mine in

Precious Metal Heap Leach Design and Practice

Precious Metal Heap Leach Design and Practice Daniel W. Kappes1 ABSTRACT Heap leaching of gold and silver ores is conducted at approximately 120 mines worldwide. Heap leaching is one of several alternative process methods for treating precious metal ores, and is selected primarily to take advantage of its low capital cost relative to other methods.

Apr 01, 2010· Heap leach pads are used as part of the mining process in the recovery of gold, copper, silver, uranium, nickel, and other metals and non-metals from mined ore. A leach pad consists of a lined facility onto which ore is placed, using either truck haulage or conveyor placement methods.

(leaching). Basically gold and silver leaching involves spraying a cyanide so- lution on the ore to dissolve the metal values, collecting the solution contain- ing the dissolved metals, and recovering the metal from the solution. By elimi- nating milling, leaching reduces capital cost and startup time for new operations.

This leaked in excess of the allowable rates and a geomembrane liner was installed over the asphalt. Barren solution was heated using a direct-fire system.

Design considerations for GCLs in leach pad liner systems

Oct 01, 2014· The nature of the leaching solution depends on the targeted metal. Low pH sulfuric acid solutions are generally used to leach copper, uranium, and nickel. High pH sodium cyanide solutions are used to leach gold and silver, and high pH carbonate solutions are occasionally used to leach uranium.
