Difficulty identifying ore properties across each of the sectors of the leaching pads.
No root cause analysis for residual moisture in the final gravel of the heap leaching process.
Wanted recommendations on options to reduce the residual humidity content in the heap leach tails.
How We Helped
Leaching Scientific-AI Optimization
Provide insight and alerts about the material stacked in the different modules and plots of the leaching cells.
Identify the root cause behind certain stacked materials having higher residual moisture.
Recommend an optimized irrigation strategy.
Obtain early warnings when the Chlorine concentration increases to avoid Chloride Contamination in SX-EW.
Provide fine fraction prediction in order to have the particle size before the material is stacked and before the Lab results.
5-8% Acid Reduction
27% reduction in fines
$1M in annual cost savings
5-8% acid consumption reduction
Achieved by providing Heap Leaching Tailings reclaim rate predictions based on ore properties stacked, delivering a root cause analysis of residual moisture in final gravels and reducing environmental leakage events.
