These copper minerals would be expected to leach under the total oxidation conditions employed, thus increasing overall copper recovery from the Sepon ore. The Sepon copper plant has started up successfully in March of 2005. The initial plant capacity is set for 60,000 tpa of copper.
Extract maximum value with minimum environmental impact when processing sulfide copper ores. We understand the intricate challenges and have the expertise and experience to design and optimize solutions to suit your specific ore type and from complete concentrator plants to specific equipment.
Copper Extraction from Sulfide Ores Latest Contents
EXTRACTION OF COPPER FROM SULPHIDE ORES Copper is mostly extracted from the sulphide ore, copper pyrites, by means of the following two processes i Smelting process ii Hydrometallurgical process SMELTING PROCESS Modern copper metallurgy is based on the smelting process.
Leaching of a low grade, copper nickel sulfide ore.
(lt;20%) from a test heap of copper nickel sulfide ore after about 200 days of leaching. Variables tested in bioleaching columns charged with a pyrrhotite rich, chalcopyrite and pentlandite ore were acid pre conditioning, inoculation and aeration.
