EcuaCorriente SA starts to ramp up Mirador copper mine

2021-11-3  The designed mining and processing production scale is 20 Mt of ore processed per year, with 60,000 t daily. The annual output of copper concentrate will be 354,000 t and the amount of copper metal 96,000 t. The second phase of the expansion will develop the north orebody and eventually see a production scale of 120,000 t of ore per day.

Copper Environmental Profile

2019-3-4  After mining, copper is produced by one of two process routes: pyrometallurgical or hydrometallurgical. Within the pyrometallurgical route, the mined ore is crushed and milled, followed by a concentration step using flotation. The obtained copper concentrates contain on average 30 percent copper, but grades can range from 20 40 percent (ICSG

Copper Ore Processing Methods

Recovery of Copper by Solution Mining Techniques AZGS

2015-7-23  The mining practice that uses solutions to extract a desired commodity from an ore deposit where it stands without also extracting the rock is known as solution mining. There are essentially two types of solution mining: 1) in-situ and 2) in-place. In-place solution mining requires permeability enhancement techniques such as blasting or

25.2 Extracting ores Mining of mineral resources Siyavula

Rocks with large concentrations of minerals, are called ores. Mining depends on finding good quality ore, preferably within a small area. The next step is to get the rocks which contain the mineral out of the ground. Once the ore is on the surface, the process of getting
