Copper Extraction Process

Copper extraction techniques are methods for concentrating copper from its ores. The operation consists of chemical, physical, and electrochemical processes. Techniques have been upgraded and vary with country according to the ore properties and geography etc.

As in all mining applications, the copper ore will be beneficiated and concentrated. The ore is crushed and grinded, and then it will be roasted to change sulfides to oxides, which are smelted to produce matte. Finally, it undergoes various processing, smelting, refining and separation processes, the final one being electrolysis.Zenith is a global supplier of processing and beneficiation equipment, we provide high performance copper refining equipment for sale.

Copper Refining Process

The primary stage of process of a metallurgical treatment circuit is accurate grinding or comminution, where the rock is crushed to produce small particles (<100 μm). These particles are then separated to remove gangue, thereafter followed by a process of physical liberation of the ore minerals from the rock. The process of liberation of copper ores depends upon whether they are oxide or sulfide ores.

Copper Smelting Application

In the smelting process, either hot calcine from the roaster or raw unroasted concentrate is melted with siliceous flux in a smelting furnace to produce copper matte. The required heat comes from partial oxidation of the sulfide charge and from burning external fuel. Most of the iron and some of the impurities in the charge oxidize with the fluxes to form a slag on top of the molten bath, which is periodically removed and discarded.
