Heap Leaching - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics


13.5 Heap Leaching of Nickel Sulfide Ore. An alternative to intensifying the rate of leaching of concentrates is to heap leach the whole ore. This has the significant advantage of eliminating the concentration of the sulfides, which is the step that has the lowest recovery on route from ore to metal.
