    How the ILR Works . The automated Batch ILR treats up to 24 tpd of feed containing accumulated gravity or flotation concentrates of fine and coarse gold.Whereas, the Continuous ILR treats continuous feeds of high tonnage and/or low grade concentrates from gold and complex sulphide ores.. Both the Batch and the Continuous ILRs work to chemically leach metal from ore …
