Agglomeration Drums for Processing Gold Ore

The process of heap leaching extracts gold from ore by piling up crushed ore and applying a leaching agent to permeate through the pile, separating the gold from the ore. While this method has been used for decades with success, it has been greatly improved by the addition of an agglomeration drum to the process before the heap.

Crushed ore agglomeration and its control for heap leach

Feb 01, 2013 The drum agglomeration is considered as a pretreatment step for the heap leaching of copper and gold ores whereas the agglomeration of uranium and nickel ores has received less attention over the past years. The acceptance of binder application for acidic leaching systems is limited primarily due to the lack of acid-tolerant binders.

One area where agglomeration is potentially useful is in heap leaching operations. Without agglomeration, fine particles travel through the heap, clogging the spaces between the larger particles and resulting in poor leach solution flow. Poor
