Percolation and Agitation Leaching of an Oxidized Copper Ore

This paper summarizes the results of an experimental and economic study undertaken to evaluate the feasibility of treating an oxidized orebody of about 10 million tons, grading about 0.75 per cent copper, by agitation leaching and by percolation leaching.
