Copper Ore

2.7.4.1.2 Copper Ore Leaching by Ore Type The leaching of copper ores is conducted somewhat differently depending on the minerals present in the ore. Oxide ores containing chrysocolla, malachite, azurite, cuprite, etc., are readily amenable to acid leaching.

Copper Ore

The principal copper ore mineral is chalcopyrite (CuFeS2), which is commonly smelted to yield a matte containing ∼50% copper. In the presence of silica flux, iron is selectively oxidized to a slag. Figure 14 shows a PSD for the Cu–Fe–S–O system at 1 atm SO 2 as a function of temperature (Rosenqvist 1978).

Copper Ore

Copper ore usually contains about 0.5 to 2% copper that occurs in the form of disseminated and stringers. The run of mine ore is reduced from 150 mm to 25 mm size in Jaw and Cone crushers. The crushed ore is grinded in ball mills to −74 μm size. The ore is processed by froth flotation comprising rougher and scavenger cells.

Copper processing

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.
