Oxidized ores in which malachite, azurite, and chrysocolla are the predominant copper minerals that do not respond either to gravity or simple flotation methods. Sulfide-filming of the carbonates followed by flotation of the filmed minerals, or direct leaching followed by precipitation of the copper from the solution may be employed for such ores.
Copper extraction refers to the methods used to obtain copper from its ores.The conversion of copper consists of a series of physical and electrochemical processes. Methods have evolved and vary with country depending on the ore source, local environmental regulations, and other factors.

The objective of this study was to investigate the floatability of a complex Kansanshi mixed copper ore with a special focus on the sulphidisation process. Controlled potential sulphidisation (CPS) is preferred over slug sulphidisation as the industry standard for the flotation of oxide copper minerals.
However, in some cases low-grade copper oxide ores can still be economically mined because they can be processed at a lower cost than copper sulfide ores. Oxidized copper orebodies may be treated
In this paper, the flotation behaviour of nickel-copper ores processed in the Sudbury area is discusse~ with emphasis on the effect of oxidation on individual minerals, pnmarily pyrrhOlite. In general, moderate oxidation of a freshly ground ore promotes the flotability of all principal sulphides in the ore leading to a bulk flotation concentrate.

The recovery of copper and cobalt was performed using flotation to increase the concentration of copper and cobalt.
4. Oxidation ore beneficiation. Generally, we adopt flotation and wet smelting combined method or separation and flotation combined processing. we adopt wet smelting processing to deal with ore which has large content of cooper oxide. The process of copper ore beneficiation production line designed by our company is as follows:
Partially oxidized copper–gold ores, such as those from Red Dome (Australia), belong to a group of refractory ores and also contain high clay. The gold in these ores is also found in iron hydroxides and oxide copper. Else_HFRC-Bulatovic_Ch012.qxd 1/3/2007 1:10 PM Page 268 268 12. Flotation of Copper Sulfide Ores 12.5.1 Flotation of sulfide
Mar 08, 1977· The method of recovering copper by froth flotation from an aqueous pulp of an ore containing both sulfide and oxidized minerals of copper which comprises subjecting an aqueous pulp of the ore to a first froth flotation operation in the presence of a collector for sulfide copper minerals, thereby producing a concentrate containing a large
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.
Mixed copper ores are treated through different processes depending on the degree of oxidation as well as the consumption of acid. With the availability of real-time technology that can reliably measure differences between oxide and sulphide minerals, it is now possible to control a mixed copper ore
Academia.edu is a platform for academics to share research papers.
In this study, a copper sulphide ore has been artiﬁcially oxidised for varying lengths of time and a series of grinding and ﬂotation tests under several grinding environments were completed at each time interval to study the combined effect of ore oxidation and grinding pulp chemistry. The results highlight the importance of
Sep 17, 2011· Then, the flotation must be capable to produce copper concentrates of low and high arsenic content. The second one must be treated by an alternative process. The treatment of copper ores with some degree of oxidation is other problem. In this case, the mine usually tries to send to the flotation process a material easy to treat.

Copper processing Copper processing Ores: Principal forms in which copper ores are found include native copper, porphyry copper, massive deposits, and mixed ores. Native copper is simply the metal found unadulterated in nature. Occasionally copper is still found in its native form, but more frequently it is mixed with other minerals, some of which may have value themselves. The amount of
About 200 years ago the UK was an important world source of copper and tin and there were mines in Cornwall and Devon. These mines have now closed and today the biggest copper mines are in Chile (Escondida mine) and Indonesia (Grasberg mine). These produce many millions of tonnes of copper ore per year. The main ores of copper are sulfides and
The use of flotation conditioners process can increase the selectivity of the flotation process, enhance the effect of the collectors, and improve the conditions of the ore pulp. 1. Sulfurizing Reagent. Oxidized ore is generally formed by ionic bonding, and is highly hydrophilic. It is not easy to float oxidized ore with xanthate collector.
And the copper oxidation ratio of the ore is 45.5%, According several flotation tests, finally found that the optimum reagents dosage are: butyl xanthate 90g/t as collector, pine oil 35g/t as foaming, sodium sulphide1000g/t, lime3000g/t, and the flow-sheet is one stage of roughing, three stage of cleaning and two stage of scavenging operationg
This paper reviews uses of sodium sulfide in the flotation of oxide minerals of copper, lead, and zinc. The activation and depression effects of sodium sulfide are of particular importance because of their applications with oxidized lead and copper ores. In spite of its industrial importance, the nature of the heterogeneous reactions between sulfide ions in solution and the surface of oxidized
Effective flotation collector reagent selection is dependent on the sulphide minerals present, their mineral associations in the ore, and circuit characteristics. Because an ore typically has more than one copper sulphide mineral type, often a combination of sulphide flotation collectors is used to maximize metallurgical performance.
Since 1960, the Dongchuan Copper Mining Bureau, Yunnan Province, China, has treated copper oxidised ores by sulphidisation flotation technique only to recover copper. In order to improve the metallurgical performances and economics of flotation, extensive development work has been carried out during the past 30 years: several specific flotation flowsheets have evolved from the...
