Innovations: Introduction to Copper: Mining & Extraction

GCM

Underground mining is achieved by sinking shafts to the appropriate levels and then driving horizontal tunnels, called adits, to reach the ore. Underground mining is, however, relatively expensive and is generally limited to rich ores. El Teniente, in Chile, is the world's largest underground copper mine.Read more

2. Mining Methods - Copper

GCM

Underground mining is used when the copper ore is not near the earth's surface. Miners dig a shaft into the ore deposit vertically or a horizontal tunnel (or adit) in order to do this. Mining then follows the vein of ore and the underground mine develops.Read more

A Underground Method of Mining Iron Ore

GCM

In the large Norway mine the hanging-wall is of jasper-slates, tough and firm, and can be easily sustained with little support. In fact, this mine is made up mostly of a series of great caverns of ore, each affording 10,000 to 20,000 tons, with heights of stopes from 20 to 60 feet. Posts and crib-timbering were used in the early years of this mine.Read more

How Mining Works - Resolution Copper

GCM

From rock to copper. Once ore comes out of Resolution Copper's underground mine, it's processed to separate the copper from the rock before it is sent to be smelted and refined into 99.99% pure copper – ready to be manufactured into a variety of products. The process works like this: A wet grinding process turns the crushed rock into a ...Read more

Copper Mining and Processing: Processing of Copper Ores ...

GCM

Copper processing is a complicated process that begins with mining of the ore (less than 1% copper) and ends with sheets of 99.99% pure copper called cathodes, which will ultimately be made into products for everyday use.The most common types of ore, copper oxide and copper sulfide, undergo two different processes, hydrometallurgy and pyrometallurgy, respectively, due to the different ...Read more

Copper mining. From ore to copper.

GCM

About 80% of all copper extracted comes from sulphide ores. A typical ore contains only 0.5% to 2.0% copper. It is a measure of the value of copper that it is worth extracting it from such small concentrations. The ore is a mixture of minerals and rock (called gangue). The most common copper …Read more
