smelter were adapted to porphyry copper ores. With the exception of leaching-solvent extrac-tion-electrowinning, the basic methods of cop-per production have remained unchanged for 65 years. Moreover, six of the mines opened be-tween 1900 and 1920 are still among the major copper producers in the United States today.
Copper recovery prediction by hydrometallurgical methods and, particularly, leaching is usually made with the help of mathematical models, but soft computing techniques can help create complex computational models that help in this prediction.

The results of microwave-leaching mechanism were compared with conventional heating leaching based on kinetics modelling. The final Cu recovery in the conventional heating and microwave irradiation was 80.88 and 69.83 ...
The leaching, solvent extraction and electrowinning LX-SX-EW process is a widely used method in the production of copper from low-grade oxidized ore. Copper is the most common metal to be processed by LX-SX-EW, but the process can also be used to extract, purify and concentrate other metals, such as nickel, cobalt and zinc.
Some methods have been used to leach copper from copper-containing fly ash, such as water leaching , pressure oxidative leaching bioleaching , , , acid leaching , , , oxidation leaching , , controlling potential leaching and chloride leaching . The electrowinning method can be used for copper recovery, which has the advantages of a low ...

Jul 10, 2017 Usually, this method is used on low grade ores that cannot be economically processed via other means. Heap leaching is successfully used to extract gold, silver, copper, nickel, and uranium. The largest heap leach for gold is at the Yanacocha mine in Peru, second only to Veladero in Argentina.
Copper is the most popular commodity after uranium that is mined by ISR Table 1. There are references to primitive forms of in situ leaching of copper in Roman times, and maybe even long before that in China OGorman et al., 2004. The San Manuel copper mine in Arizona is the best known copper mine exploited by ISR OGorman et al., 2004.

Apr 18, 2018 Copper oxide is more difcult to recover than copper sulde. Presently, the three main treatment methods of copper oxide are otation 2,3, leaching 4, and beneciation-metallurgy combination processes 5. The otation method can be divided into the two following types direct otation and suldationxanthate otation.
This study was undertaken to develop a cost-effective method of copper leaching in sulfide concentrate involving minerals as chalcopyrite and pyrite. The combined methods involving low temperature roasting of sulfide copper minerals with potassium chlorides without the formation of sulfurous gases and their evolution into the atmosphere is suggested.
