atmospheric leaching of primary copper concentrates in a sulfate medium. It has been shown that in the presence of pyrite, the kinetics of leaching accelerates significantly as a result of a strictly chemical reaction, and therefore requires no microbe. In addition, fine grinding is not required in this process.
compartments 1 to 3, leaching was observed to be preceded by dilution of the repulp liquor copper raffinate. The leaching rate for compartment 5 was slightly lower than that of compartment 1 but higher than the rates of compartments 2, 3, and 4 for all the metals studied.

In simple leaching circuits the purpose of grinding is liberate the particle and expose fine grained minerals to leachant e.g. exposing fine gold to cyanide. In more complex leach environments such as those treating refractory ore bodies the refractory minerals can be passivated by reaction products forming a 2-3 micron rim on the particle.

Before leaching the gold, ore must be crushed and grinded into small particles, usually particle size varies between 30 and 180 m. Free milling ores are ready for leaching after crushing and grinding whereas refractory ores need pretreatment. It is important to pretreat a refractory ore before leaching to achieve better gold extraction.
