Copper Flotation - Mineral Processing Metallurgy

May 16, 2016  A Copper Flotation Flowsheet. Because the copper in this type of ore usually assays only plus or minus 1% copper, the porphyry copper operations must be relatively large in order to be commercial. The flowsheet in this study illustrates a typical 3,000 ton per day operation. In general most operations of this type have two or more parallel ...

Products - Rio Tinto Kennecott

The Bingham Canyon Mine contains veins of copper sulfide, so the ore extracted contains sulfur, which needs to be separated from the copper. We upgrade ore from the mine to produce copper concentrate using a flotation process. The copper concentrate entering the smelter is about one-third copper, one-third iron, and one-third sulfur, with other ...

60 Centuries of Copper: The Flotation Process

The Flotation Process. Until quite recently copper ore had to be hand-picked if the extraction of the metal was to be economical. In fact, in the last century, ores of 4 percent grade were regarded as almost valueless. Today such ores (which would be regarded as relatively rich in copper) are scarce; the great majority of mines contain the ...
