The contemporary trends in the development of the autoclave processes in the metallurgy of nickel, cobalt, copper, gold, molybdenum and other non-ferrous and precious metals are stated. It is shown that during last decade several autoclave plants have been put into commercial operation or got ready to be put in a number of countries. Different methods of leaching used at the modern plants for extraction of non-ferrous and precious metals are presented.
keywords Autoclave leaching, bioleaching, intensification of processes, double refractory ore, ultra-fine grinding, SX-EW method, nickel, copper, gold, molybdenum.
