Clay from ROM is 10%, and it contains 0.05% copper..

What should we do to clay before feeding to SABC?

Can we still recover Cu from clay?

I have heard of Gold trapped in clay. The way it was gotten around was to dry the clay and then wash it. For some reason the clay would release the gold.

0.05% copper = What does it matter THAT IS NOT ORE. On an industrial scale, clay is there to stay. 10% is bad news. What are you doing: Leaching gold or floating copper/copper-gold? Can you clarify...
