Copper Flotation Mineral Processing amp; Metallurgy

Although basic porphyry copper flotation and metallurgy has remained virtually the same for many years, the processing equipment as well as design of the mills has continually been improved to increase production while reducing operating and maintenance costs. Also, considerable attention is paid to automatic sensing devices and automatic controls in order to assure maximum metallurgy and

The increasing complexity of ore deposits, declining ore grades and higher global demand for copper has resulted in increased ore processing by flotation plants around the world.

Copper Mining and Processing Processing of Copper Ores

Copper Mining and Processing Processing of Copper Ores

Copper processing is a complicated process that begins with mining of the ore (less than 1% copper) and ends with sheets of 99.99% pure copper called cathodes, which will ultimately be made into products for everyday use.The most common types of ore, copper oxide and copper sulfide, undergo two different processes, hydrometallurgy and pyrometallurgy, respectively, due to the different

Froth flotation

Froth flotation

History

Froth flotation is a process for selectively separating hydrophobic materials from hydrophilic. This is used in mineral processing, paper recycling and wastewater treatment industries. Historically this was first used in the mining industry, where it was one of the great enabling technologies of the 20th century. It has been described as quot;the single most important operation used for the recovery and upgrading of sulfide oresquot;. The development of froth flotation has improved the recovery of valuable minerals, such as copper and le

Copper extraction

Copper extraction

Overview

Until the latter half of the 20th century, smelting sulfide ores was almost the sole means of producing copper metal from mined ores (primary copper production). Davenport, et al, noted in 2002 that even then 80% of global primary copper production was from copperironsulfur minerals and that the vast majority of these were treated by smelting.
Copper was initially recovered from sulfide ores by directly smelting the ore in a furnace. The smelters

The Flotation Process. Until quite recently copper ore had to be handpicked if the extraction of the metal was to be economical. In fact, in the last century, ores of

Copper Ore Processing Methods

Copper Ore Processing Methods

The four major steps in the production of marketable copper are mining, concentrating, smelting, and refining. In a few instances, however, leaching takes the place of concentrating, smelting, and refining. At present, although considerable leaching and directsmelting ores are produced, the bulk of the copper ore mined is concentrated. The milling of copper ores as practiced in the larger
