Copper Ore Description

Copper ore refers to the general term of available natural mineral aggregates containing copper. Copper ore is generally an aggregate composed of copper sulfide or oxide and other minerals, which reacts with sulfuric acid to produce blue-green copper sulfate. The industrial minerals of copper include natural copper, chalcopyrite, chalcocite, tetrahedrite, chalcocite, malachite, etc. More than 280 kinds of copper-bearing minerals have been found, of which only 16 are the main ones. Chalcopyrite (a compound of copper, sulfur, and iron) is the main mine in China, followed by chalcocite and bornite. 

The world’s copper resources are mainly concentrated in Chile, Australia, Peru, the United States, Mexico, Russia, and other countries. Chile is the country with the richest copper resources in the world. Refer to copper ore mining, JXSC Mine Machinery Factory supplies follow solutions for your reference.

Copper Ore Mining Plant Solutions

Rock Copper Ore Gravity Processing Plant 1

• Rock Copper Ore Gravity Processing Plant Explanation

This JXSC Setup is a complete set rock copper processing plant, including crushing, grinding, gravity separation, copper concentrate ore dewatering system, tailing water recycle system, etc.

Main Machines Used in This Plant: Feeding hopper, chute feeder, primary jaw crusher, secondary jaw crusher, impact fine crusher, ball mill, spiral chute, shaking table, cone thickener for concentrate, plate filter press, thickener for tailings.

The chute feeder is for feeding raw material to primary jaw crusher more stable and smoothly. Primary jaw crusher is for crushing big stone to a smaller size, secondary jaw crusher is for crushing rock to below 30mm, impact fine crusher is for a crush to below 10mm, so as can increase the ball mill’s grinding effect with smaller model saving energy and cost. The ball mill is for grinding 0-10mm material to 200mesh working together with cyclone. Then 200mesh slurry will be pumped to two stages spiral chute for primary separation, all heavy mineral concentrate ore from spiral chute will go to shaking table to concentrate again, so as to reach high-grade copper concentrate.

After getting the copper concentrate ore from the shaking table, concentrate ore will be pumped into a thickener to make suitable density concentrate, then go to plate filter press to filter water and get dry copper concentrate. At the same time, all the tailing material will go to a cone thickener to make suitable density, then go to a plate filter press to recycle the water to use.

• Rock Copper Ore Gravity Processing Plant Explanation

This JXSC Processing plant Setup is Rock Copper Gravity Separation Plant. Complete set includes Feeding Hopper, Chute Feeder, Rough Jaw crusher, Fine Jaw crusher, Hammer crusher, belt conveyor, Copper Concentration Shaking table, etc.

The Chute Feeder is for feeding rock raw material more stably and smoothly to a primary Jaw crusher, Primary jaw crusher is for crushing big stone to a smaller size(for example crush 250mm rock to below 100mm), then fine jaw crusher crush rock to below 30mm, finally the hammer crusher is for grinding 30mm rock to small powder size 0-2mm, so as can release out the copper concentrate from rock, all the crushed material transferred by belt conveyor. then the 0-2mm output will go to the shaking table to concentrate copper, middling of the 1st stage shaking table will go to the 2nd stage shaking table to concentrate again, so can increase the copper recovery ratio to as high as possible. Will get copper concentrate ore from two-stage shaking tables.

This designed flowchart is suitable to process Oxide type and Sulfide type copper, and man other minerals, such as rock gold, rock Chrome ore, rock coltan ore, rock tin ore, rock Mn ore, rock zinc-lead, etc.

If the mineral’s concentrate size is as small as 0-1mm or 200mesh, can use a ball mill to replace the hammer mill to get such a fine size. If the processing capacity is large, can firstly use spiral chute or jig separator for primary concentration, then use shaking table for final concentration again.
