Copper Extraction Technique

Copper extraction techniques refers to the methods for obtaining copper from its ores. This conversion consists of a series of chemical, physical, and electrochemical processes. As in all mining operations, the ore generally need to be beneficiated or concentrated. To do this, the ore is crushed then it must be roasted to convert sulfides to oxides, which are smelted to produce matte. Finally, it undergoes various refining processes, the final one being electrolysis. For economic and environmental reasons, many of the byproducts of extraction are reclaimed.

Copper Extraction Equipment

Copper ore can be mined by open pit quarrying or underground mining method. Mining operations include the extraction, crushing, grinding and processing of copper.
