Bacterial Leaching. On investigation it was found that naturally occurring bacteria were oxidizing iron sulfides and the resulting ferric sulfate was acting as an oxidizer and leachant for copper sulfides. These bacteria were given the name - ferrooxidans for their action in oxidizing iron sulfides.

Heap leach operations are zero discharge facilities. The leaching cycle is relatively short (e.g., 20 to 90 days) but may last a year or more. At completion of leaching operations, the leach ore is rinsed with fresh water to remove residual cyanide. With few exceptions, heap leach residue (the barren ore remaining after precious metal values
