Comparison of leach rates for copper minerals (1 reply)

Hi all,

I have a very simple question for which I am having trouble to find an answer. Can anyone direct me to studies which compare the leach rates of chalcopyrite with other copper minerals - particularly sulfides? There seems to be plenty on cyanide solubility, but little for acid leaching.

I'm a little embarrassed that I'm finding this so hard...

Cheers,

 

Greg

Hi  Greg,

I am waiting on input from a friend on this. From now this may guide you a bit:
