COPPER Steencore Group

2021-11-12  Copper extraction refers to the methods used to obtain copper from its ores. If the ore is primarily sulfide copper minerals (such as chalcopyrite), the ore is crushed and ground to liberate the valuable minerals from the waste ('gangue') minerals. Copper ores. The main copper sulphide minerals are chalcopyrite chalcocite, covellite, bornite

Copper Mining and Extraction Sulfide Ores

Copper can be extracted from its ore by: Underground: sinking a vertical shaft into the Earth to an appropriate depth and driving horizontal tunnels into the ore. Open pit: 90% of ore is mined by this method. Ores near the surface can be quarried after removal of

Extracting a metal from its ore chymist

2006-6-27  Copper can be extracted from its ores by reduction. One of the common copper ores, malachite, which is composed of mainly copper carbonate, CuCO3xCu(OH)2, is heated to produce copper oxide with the release of carbon dioxide. CuCO3xCu(OH)2 → 2 CuO + CO2 + H2O The copper oxide is then heated with carbon to get copper. 2 CuO + C → 2 Cu + CO2
