Copper Mining and Extraction: Oxide Ores

3. Copper sulfate solution is collected in the pregnant leach pond then pumped to the solvent extraction plant. The solvent extraction phase of treatment occurs in two stages. During the initial phase an organic solvent is used to recover copper ions contained in the pregnant leach solution, exchanging them with hydrogen ions in the acid.

Leaching - Mining Fundamentals

After pre-processing, the ore is leached with acid of alkali solutions to extract the metal. Heap leaching is carried out in the extraction of copper, nickel, uranium and precious metals. Insitu Leaching. Insitu leaching is also known as insitu recovery, or solution mining. This is especially used to extract copper and uranium.

Is Acidic Water is Eating Away Your Copper Tubing ...

Water with low PH usually less then 6.5 could be acidic. Because of this, the water could leach metal into your water system. Copper, iron, lead, and zinc could all leak from, plumbing fictures as well as the piping. The lower the PH levels the more toxicity that is more than likely in the water causing premature damage as stated above. 2.
