Vat leaching is carried out in vats ranging in capacity from 30 to 1200 tons. Sand for leaching is separated from slime in cones, V boxes, classifiers, and in collecting vats filled by distributors—the overflow in each case being slime or finer portion of the ore. As a rule, leaching is a simple process, involving a vat of well-mixed neutralized sand, ample contact with strong and weak
The manual is all about VAT Leaching Technology which is a low cost technology for recovery of gold from fresh ore or from tails left from previous CIL process and from Small Scale Miners.
Other articles where Vat leaching is discussed: gold processing: Cyanidation: ore), cyanidation is accomplished by vat leaching, which involves holding a slurry of ore and solvent for several hours in large tanks equipped with agitators. For extracting gold from low-grade ores, heap leaching is practd. The huge heaps described above are sprayed with a dilute solution of sodium cyanide

The Iwato ore is gold and silver bearing silicified porous rock. As most gold and silver in the Iwato ore are concentrated in the pores, leaching of coarse sized ore is expected to be possible. Laboratory tests and pilot plant tests of vat leaching for the Iwato ore were carried out using 0.15-8.0 mm feed.
When gold dissolution is complete, the gold-bearing solution is separated from the solids. With ores of higher gold content (greater than 20 grams of gold per tonne of ore), cyanidation is accomplished by vat leaching, which involves holding a slurry of ore and solvent in large tanks equipped with agitators.
Gold Leaching with Nuisance Copper with GlyCat™ process. Slag Turning wastes into viable opportunities. GlyLeach™ can be used to leach residual metals contained in slags; a byproduct of the smelting process. Typically these slags are stockpiled and in the case of copper slags can contain up to 1% copper in a form that does not respond
lurgical gold extraction routes utilize a leaching step to produce a gold-bearing solution as an intermediate product while the recycling of secondary gold from electronic and precious metal scrap is based on the selective and fast dissolu-tion of the precious metal. Therefore, A Method for Leaching or Dissolving Gold from Ores or Precious
