Cost of processing copper ores

Apr 12, 2017 In the same bulletin, tables 53 to 62, inclusive, present additional data on cost of producing a pound of copper. Table 57 of this series is reproduced below. Many companies mining ores of the base metals containing precious metals that are recovered as a byproduct, credit base-metal production costs with the return from tho precious metals

    Processing of Complex Materials in the Copper Industry

    Jul 06, 2020 With the gradual decrease in the grade of copper ores being processed, copper concentrates have become more complex with higher impurity and gangue content. This trend has had a detrimental effect on smelters as they have to increase throughput to maintain copper metal production, while increasing operating costs due to processing the increased amounts of secondary products

    Oct 28, 2021 Before the beneficiation of copper ores, crushing and grinding are required. The bulk ores are crushed to about 12cm by a jaw crusher or a cone crusher. Then the crushed materials are sent to the grinding equipment, and the final particle size of the copper ore is reduced to 0.15-0.2mm. Copper ore crushing process. 1

    Copper ores. An ore is a rock containing enough valuable mineral to make it worth extracting. In the case of copper, it is worth extracting when there is about 2 kg of copper per 1,000 kg of ore (0.2%). Copper minerals are found in over one hundred varieties, although only a few have been worked for copper on a large scale

    By using ore sorting equipment, ore concentrates can be created at very low cost in small or remote mining installations. The entire processing line can be planned in semi-mobile form and consists only of crushers, screens, belts and sorting machines. This allows immense cost savings for transport, since the waste rock is disposed of on-site
