Heap Leach Solutions 2022

This year’s Heap Leach Solutions (HLS22) conference will be held in Sparks, Nevada. The conference is being organized in partnership with the Mackay School of Engineering and Earth Sciences, which has educated generations of renowned scientists and engineers and has a long and proud history at the University of Nevada, Reno. Precious metal heap leaching also originated in the Reno area, and many technologies, including agglomeration of precious metal ores, were developed there.


The conference will continue to be a forum for heap leach practitioners and researchers to share knowledge and latest developments. The program will include the following technical and heap leach related themes:

  • Project development
  • Operations
  • Closure
  • Gold, copper, nickel, uranium, and other metal leaching
  • Heap leach hydrology
  • New technologies
  • Governance
  • Modelling
  • Economics and Financing


To enhance your conference experience, Heap Leach Solutions 2022 includes additional activities such as an exclusive short course and a two-day field trip to well-known heap leach mine sites in Nevada. Networking and social events will also be a key feature of this year’s conference as we look forward to this in-person, international gathering. On the opening night of the conference, registered attendees are invited to the complimentary social at the W.M Keck Museum of Mining in Reno, Nevada.
