Jul 09, 2019  1 Types of copper sulfide ore (1) Single copper mineral Its ore characteristic is relatively simple, and the only useful component that can be recycled is copper. The gangue minerals are mainly quartz, carbonate and silicate. (2) Copper-sulfur ore Called copper-bearing pyrite. In addition to copper minerals, iron sulfide can be recovered, and the main mineral of sulfur is pyrite.

Copper Mining and Extraction: Oxide Ores

The process used to treat sulfide copper ores begins at the mine site, where the copper-bearing minerals are physically separated from the rest of the rock. The flow diagram below shows how the percentage of copper increases as the ore is refined, first physically by froth flotation, then chemically by smelting and finally electrolytic refining.

Segregation Process of Mixed Sulphide Copper Ore

May 21, 2016  Thus copper values, originally disseminated in ore particles “segregate” to the surface of coke particles. The segregated ore is then wet ground in a ball mill and floated in a conventional way. The segregation process does not affect sulphide copper minerals and they float together with the segregated charge in a common concentrate.

Sulphide ores of copper are insoluble in dilute sulphuric acid leaching solutions, but a very high extraction can be obtained if the copper ore is in the oxidized condition. The problem is to convert the sulphide into the oxide form. This can be done by giving the sulphide ore an oxidizing-sulphatizing roast. Copper sulphate is soluble in water, so acid will be saved in the leaching process if ...

In the extraction of copper from its sulphide ore, when ore is subjected to roasting, some of it is oxidised to Cu 2 O which reacts with the remaining Cu 2 S (sulphide ore) to give copper metal. Cu 2 S +2Cu 2 O → 6Cu +SO 2 ↑ In this process, Cu 2 S behaves as reducing agent.
