Copper ore beneficiation methods. 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.Classification of copper orecopper ore can be divided into three categories:copper sulfide orecopper oxide oreand natural copperCopper ore dressing equipmentFlotation machineMagnetic separatorJiggerShaking tableCopper ore beneficiation methodsFlotation methodChemical beneficiation
Figure 1 is a generalized diagram of a conventional copper flotation plant from the point where ore first enters the circuit to the production of concentrate and tailings. To prepare ore for the flotation process, run of mine ore, which may contain from about 2 to 5 percent water, by weight, when mined, is
Copper Flotation. Although basic porphyry copper flotation and metallurgy has remained virtually the same for many years, the processing equipment as well as design of the mills has continually been improved to increase production while reducing operating and maintenance costs. Also, considerable attention is paid to automatic sensing devices ...
Flowsheet for treatment of Copper Sulfide ores rich inminerals such as chalcopyrite with gold and silver as well as arsenopyrite. The above flowsheet is designed for the treatment by flotation of copper as chalcopyrite with gold and silver values. The ore, ranging from 60 65% silica, with pyrite, arsenopyrite, and calcite with 3 to 4% copper.
With more than 20 years of mineral processing experience, Xinhai constantly strengthens development and innovation of copper flotation reagent, flotation process, technology and equipment. According different types of copper ores and customer demand, Xinhai finally formed four main copper flotation process systems:
Problem: A copper ore initially contains 2.09% Cu. After carrying out a froth flotation separation, the products are as shown in Table 1. Using this data, calculate: Ratio of concentration % Metal Recovery % Metal Loss % Weight Recovery, or % Yield Enrichment Ratio
