Title Particle size distribution for copper heap leaching operations as established from 3D mineral exposure analysis by X-ray microCT
Date 2003
Description The particle size distribution (PSD) for copper heap leaching is an important consideration in the design and operation of any copper heap leaching facility. High-resolution 3D X-ray microtomography (XMT) can be used for the direct determination of the percentage of exposed valuable mineral grains in multiphase particles which vary in size from 40 mm down to a few hundred microns.
