Abstract
Ore leaching techniques combined with solution treatment procedures offer exceptional conditions to produce high purity metal from very low-grade ore sources. Essential percentage of the world copper production is based on the heap and dump leaching techniques. The use of computer simulation, is now a basic tool for process design and optimisation, as evidenced by its increasing use of practising engineers through commercially available simulation software products. This paper discusses the modelling and simulation of the hydrometallurgical processes. The simulation example of a copper heap leaching process is presented and evaluated.
