Introduction of Copper Ore Mining

Native copper ore and the copper sulphides ore are usually found in veins associated with igneous intrusions. Chrysocolla and the copper carbonates are products of the weathering of copper-bearing rocks. Copper was one of the first metals to be found, because it occurred in native form and needed little refining. Today the main producers are from the USA, Russia, Kazakhstan, Georgia, Uzbekistan, Armenia, Zambia, Chile, Peru, Canada, and the Democratic Republic of Congo (formerly Zaire).

Copper ore is mined either at open pit copper ore mines or underground copper ore mines. Firstly the copper ore is blasted, loaded and transported to the primary crusher. Then the ore is crushed and screened, with the fine sulfide size ore (0~0.5 mm) going to froth flotation cells for recovery of copper ore.

Copper ore Primary Crushing

Primary crushing was done by a jaw crusher – like a giant nutcracker. This consisted of two jaws, one static, and one moving. Copper Ore would move between the jaws and was crushed if it was larger than the gap between the jaws. The jaws would not close completely but were set 4 or 6 inches apart. This crusher was not designed to crush every piece of ore. After the ore passed through a crushing device it was generally "screened" and any ore above a certain size would be fed back through the crusher. In many mines, including Britannia, primary crushing was done underground.

Secondary Crushing

Secondary crushing was accomplished within this mill by a cone crusher. This cone crusher consisted of a cone-like chute, down which the ore passed. Inside the cone, a smaller cone-shaped crusher rotated, breaking the ore between the crusher plus the wall of the chute.

Copper Mining Process

The whole copper ore mining process equipment consists of jaw crusher, ball mill, classifier, magnetic separator, flotation machines, thickener, dryers and other major equipments. Aggregate screen, bucket elevator and aggregate feeder can also be used in this copper ore processing.
