copper sulfide mining

Jul 31, 2019 · Copper Sulfide Mining is NOT Necessarily Good for Jobs – or Fishing. The acid mine-polluted water in the Rio Tinto river has also seriously contaminated the once fertile (and now barren) fisheries where the river flowed into the Gulf of Cadiz (near the Strait of Gibraltar). The same can be said for Railroad Creek and Lake Chelan.

    Copper Ore Types: Sulfides vs. Oxides | INN

    Copper Ore Types: Sulfides vs. Oxides. Both ore types can be economically mined, though they are processed in different ways. Copper sulfide ores are typically the most profitable copper ores to mine. That is because they have high copper content, and the copper in them can more easily be separated from unwanted minerals. However, copper oxide ores are more abundant.

    Innovations: Introduction to Copper: Mining Extraction

    The barren rock, or gangue has to be separated from the sulfide minerals in order to smelt the metallic copper from the ore. By far the greatest proportion of copper is extracted from the sulfides of copper, iron and sometimes other metals. Such ores originate from sulfur-bearing volcanic magmas, which have separated into metal sulfides and siliceous melts.
