The above flowsheet shows a basic copper mine process, from mine to metal. There are two distinct types of copper ore, the sulfide ore and the oxide ore.

copper | Definition & Facts |

Copper is commercially produced mainly by smelting or leaching, usually followed by electrodeposition from sulfate solutions. For a detailed treatment of the production of copper, see copper processing.

Copper extraction - Wikipedia

Most copper ores contain only a small percentage of copper metal bound up within valuable ore minerals, with the remainder of the ore being unwanted rock or gangue minerals, typically silicate minerals or oxide minerals for which there is often no value.

How copper is made - material, used, processing, steps ...

The process of extracting copper from copper ore varies according to the type of ore and the desired purity of the final product. Each process consists of several steps in which unwanted materials are physically or chemically removed, and the concentration of copper is progressively increased.

The bioleaching of sulphide minerals with emphasis on copper ...

Millions of tonnes of low-grade ore and copper-rich tailings await the development of an efficient and economic bioleach process for chalcopyrite (CuFeS 2).The bioleaching of chalcopyrite in situ and in dumps is a practical option only because the low and slow recoveries are countered by the low processing costs (Schnell, 1997).

Ore - Wikipedia

An ore is an occurrence of rock or sediment that contains sufficient minerals with economically important elements, typically metals, that can be economically extracted from the deposit.

A Review on Novel Techniques for Chalcopyrite Ore Processing

Chalcopyrite ores are usually processed by means of hydrometallurgical or pyrometallurgical processes, but due to environmental aspects and the possibility of increased exploitation of mixed and lower grade ores and relatively small isolated deposits, there has been a worldwide upsurge of interest in the hydrometallurgical processes of this ore as compared to pyrometallurgy.

Bisha Mine - Copper-Zinc Production

The ≈$250 million Bisha Mine was constructed on-time and under budget from 2008 to 2010. Processing oxide ore, the mine produced low-cost gold-silver doré until mid-2013.

copper processing | Definition, History, & Facts |

Copper processing: Copper processing, the extraction of copper from its ores and the preparation of copper metal or chemical compounds for use in various products.

Introduction to Mineral Processing - Chevron Phillips Chemical

Froth flotation is considered to be the most widely used method for ore beneficiation. In ore beneficiation, flotation is a process in which valuable minerals are separated from worthless material or other valuable minerals by inducing them to gather in and on the surface of a froth layer.
