  • Copper Mining and Extraction Sulfide Ores

    These produce many millions of tonnes of copper ore per year. The main ores of copper are sulfides and oxides. From their chemical formulas you can calculate the percentage of copper in each mineral. However this is not the same as the percentage of copper in the ore as that also contains unwanted silicates and other minerals, called gangue, that will have to be separated.

  • Bacterial consortium for copper extraction from sulphide

    The economic extraction of copper from low grade ores requires low cost processing methods such as in situ, dump and heap leaching. Bacterially assisted heap leaching of low grade copper sulphides is a developing technology that has been applied successfully for the extraction of copper from secondary sulphide minerals such as chalcocite at a number of operations worldwide.

  • Copper Mining and Processing Processing of Copper Ores

    Sulfide ores are generally processed using pyrometallurgy, the extraction and purification of metals by processes involving the application of heat. This process uses a series of physical steps and high temperatures to extract and purify copper from copper sulfide ores, in four basic steps 1) froth flotation, 2) thickening, 3) smelting, and 4) electrolysis.

  • Copper Mining and Extraction Oxide Ores

    Copper is refined from ores in the ground, either through underground or open pit mines. Most of the copper ores mined today are oxide or sulfide ores. Extraction of sulfide ores is covered in more detail in Copper Mining and Extraction Sulfide Ores (1114), but is introduced here because an important by product of this process is used for the extraction of oxide ores.

    Extracting copper from other ores. Copper can be extracted from non sulphide ores by a different process involving three separate stages Reaction of the ore (over quite a long time and on a huge scale) with a dilute acid such as dilute sulphuric acid to produce a very dilute copper(II) sulphate solution.

    OverviewHistoryConcentrationFroth flotationHydrometallurgical extractionSulfide smeltingCopper extraction refers to the methods used to obtain copper from its ores. The conversion of copper consists of a series of physical and electrochemical processes. Methods have evolved and vary with country depending on the ore source, local environmental regulations, and other factors. As in all mining operations, the ore must usually be beneficiated. The processing techniques depend on the nature of the ore. If the ore is primarily sulfide copper minerals, the ore is crushed and ground to liLive Chat
