Development of a Heap Leaching Simulator for the Minerals Industry Imperial College London, Department of Earth Science and Engineering, Phd Studentship. Heap leaching is a process for extracting metals from ores. It is rapidly increasing in its usage due to lower operating and capital costs compared to more conventional extraction methods.This project will involve integrating a novel continuum description for the unsaturated flow of liquid through a packed bed with models for mass transport, reaction kinetics and heat flow within the heap in order to produce an overall simulation of the process.
