THE HEAP LEACH PROBLEM Heap leaching is a conceptually simple process but has several characteristics that make modelling the flowsheet quite complicated Fundamentally it is a slow process There is a substantial time lag between stacking ore and producing the final product During this time the soluble inventory buildsMunicipal solid waste incineration bottom ash MSWI BA is the main output of the municipal solid waste incineration process both in mass and volume It contains some heavy metals that possess market value but may also limit the utilization of the material This study illustrates a robust and simple heap leaching method for recovering zinc and copper from MSWI BA
