20191011in heap leaching, because the solution is added to a given section of the heap and because after a certain quantity of solution has been added the leach solution is added to another section, several months may elapse between additions of solution to a given sectioneap leaching, therefore, results in a process of alternate wetting and drying.
Heap leach mining is an industrial hydrometallurgical process, where the metal contained in an ore body is extracted by dissolutionhe target mineral is leached with an aqueous solution whereby the mineral is dissolved into what is called a pregnant solution which, is then captured and later recovered downstream in the processing line.
