Abstract | This paper describes the methods of comprehensive generalization, analysis, and evaluation of practical experience and scientific achievements in the field of geotechnology and heap leaching (HL) of metals from raw ore on the daylight surface, taking into account the climatic factors that adversely affect HL processes, irrigation, the condition of ore stacks and the collecting capacity for pregnant and barren solutions in the evaporation of process solutions. Mathematical statistics and research data on respective standard and new methods are presented. It is confirmed that the ratio between the percentage of evaporation y and the wind speed |
