Processing cost to recover copper from ores

Processing cost to recover copper from ores

Apr 19, 2019 At the Steptoe mill, in Nevada, a small leaching annex is treating oxidized copper ore in conjunction with flue dust at a cost of $0.08 per pound copper recovered. The actual cost of copper produced by leaching methods is, however, not of so much importance as the fact that ore may be handled in this manner which is not amenable to reduction by any other process

    Sep 13, 2019 Say a copper mine produced 1Mt of metal in 1999 at 90% recovery. The remaining 10% of copper, around 111kt, went to tailings. If the average copper price in 1999 was US$1,500/tonne then that 10% represented US$166.5 million of metal. Fast forward 20 years and at today’s price, US$5,842/tonne, if that material could be reprocessed and an extra

    A process for the recovery of copper from its ores by conventional procedures requiring heat in which the source of heat is microwave energy. The microwave energy is used to selectively heat the copper compounds, such as sulfidic and oxidic compounds, in the ore, as respects the gangue, to convert the compounds into other compounds, such as oxides and chlorides, from which copper is more

    The SX/EW Process has its roots in analytical chemistry where it is used to separate one metallic ion from another. It was first used as a large-scale process during World War II for the recovery of uranium from its ores. The key to the process is the development of organic extractants that are specific to the metal to be extracted
