What is Heap Leaching? (with picture)

Nov 30 2020 Heap leaching is an industrial process for extracting precious metals and minerals by dissolving them from ore with liquids known as leaching solutions. The process is commonly used to extract metals such as gold copper and uranium yellowcake in addition to several other minerals. Heap leaching is usually carried out in the open and on slightly sloping ground covered with a watertight ...
