Mineral Leaching Tests
ORES: Precious Metals - Sulfides - Polymetallic - Flotation/Gravity Concentrates
Customized tests employing a series of progressively more aggressive leaches. Combined with inter-stage cyanidation to determine deportation of gold in various mineral species. A similar approach is used to identify copper mineral species present in the ore.
Conventional screening procedures rely on mineralogical investigations to determine processing options. This approach does not always work. Diagnostic leaching is an important alternative tool that reduces the testing costs and time involved in identifying the most promising options.
Advantages to Diagnostic Leach Testing for Minerals
Cuts cost of evaluating process feasibility for gold deposits
For copper, indicates reagent suite needed for flotation/leaching
Reveals why gold is being lost in tailing/residue
