TACKLING IMPURITIES IN COPPER CONCENTRATES

One considers a “typical” copper concentrate as having about 25+% copper and some minor quantity of impurities, preferably rich in precious metals. In practice, smelters purchase all variety of concentrates and blend them to provide a suitable feed for their operations. However, each smelter has differing

Copper Mining and Processing: Processing 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

Copper processing Ores Britannica

Copper processing Copper processing Ores: Principal forms in which copper ores are found include native copper, porphyry copper, massive deposits, and mixed ores. Native copper is simply the metal found unadulterated in nature. Occasionally copper is still found in its native form, but more frequently it is mixed with other minerals, some of which may have value themselves.

Copper Ore an overview ScienceDirect Topics

The copper ore production process operation as defined in Section 3.1 is simulated for a period of one year with various failure modes. The time evolution of the cumulative cost curves and copper output for 100 Monte Carlo (MC) simulations are shown in Figure 5 for easier visualisation. More MC simulations can be done while characterising the system.

Jul 30, 2012· Copper metal can be prepared by roasting copper ore, which can contain curprite and copper 2 sulfide. Cu2S +O2---> 2Cu + SO2 CuS +O2 ---> Cu + SO2 Suppose an ore sample contains 11.0% impurity in addition to a mixture of CuS and Cu2S. Heating 100.0g of the mixture produces 75.4g of copper metal with a purity of 89.5%. What is the weight percent of CuS and Cu2S in the ore.

Copper processing Roasting, smelting, and converting

Copper processing Copper processing Roasting, smelting, and converting: Once a concentrate has been produced containing copper and other metals of value (such as gold and silver), the next step is to remove impurity elements. In older processes the concentrate, containing between 5 and 10 percent water, is first roasted in a cylindrical, refractory-lined furnace of either the hearth or

Copper Smelting Chemistry Tutorial

Roasting : reduces impurities in the copper ore and produces calcine (a mixture of products) * Concentrated (enriched) ore is heated to between 500 o C and 700 o C in air. Some impurities in the ore, such as arsenic and antimony, are oxidized and form volatile gases which can be removed:

Copper extraction Wikipedia

Copper ores containing chalcopyrite can be concentrated to produce a concentrate with between 20% and 30% copper-in-concentrate (usually 27–29% copper); the remainder of the concentrate is iron and sulfur in the chalcopyrite, and unwanted impurities such as silicate gangue minerals or other sulfide minerals, typically minor amounts of pyrite

How copper is made material, used, processing, steps

Most of the copper ores mined in the United States contain only about 1.2-1.6% copper by weight. The most common sulfide ore is chalcopyrite, CuFeS 2,also known as copper pyrite or yellow copper ore. Chalcocite, Cu 2 S, is another sulfide ore. Cuprite, or red copper ore, Cu 2 O, is an oxide ore.
