Copper Smelting an overview ScienceDirect Topics

The major trend in copper smelting and converting is towards improved capture of the SO 2 that is evolved from oxidizing CuFeS 2 and other copper sulfide minerals. Improved SO 2 capture benefits the environment and the resulting H 2 SO 4 product can be used for leaching “oxide” and supergene sulfide minerals. The improved SO 2 capture has been achieved by the development of continuous

A typical copper ore contains between 0.5% and 2.0% copper. A high grade ore produces a high yield of metal. A low grade order produces a low yield of metal. Copper can be extracted from sulfide ores (usually higher grade ores) by direct smelting. The earliest evidence of copper smelting occurs in Serbian artefacts dating from around 5000 BC.

The Smelting of Copper Worc

The Smelting of Copper The first written account of the processes of smelting and refining of copper is to be found in the 12th century.1 On smelting: Copper is engendered in the earth. When a vein of which is found, it is acquired with the greatest labour by digging and breaking. It is a stone of a green colour and most hard, and naturally mixed with lead. This stone, dug up in abundance, is

Copper Smelting Process Furnaces Used, By-Products,

Sulphuric dioxide gas is created in smelting copper process and is converted sulphuric acid which is used in some of the smelting processes or sold as a by-product. Modern copper smelters use processed copper ore fed into a flash furnace, typically fired by oxygen which produces blister copper, being further processed in a converter furnace. Molten copper is poured from here into rectangular

Copper processing Roasting, smelting, and converting

Copper processing Copper processing Roasting, smelting, and converting: Once a concentrate has been produced containing copper and other metals of value (such as gold and silver), the next step is to remove impurity elements. In older processes the concentrate, containing between 5 and 10 percent water, is first roasted in a cylindrical, refractory-lined furnace of either the hearth or

Copper Ore Processing Methods

11/04/2017· At present, although considerable leaching and direct-smelting ores are produced, the bulk of the copper ore mined is concentrated. The milling of copper ores as practiced in the larger concentrators has changed to such an extent that comparatively few of the machines in use at the beginning of the period remain in service today. Primary and secondary crushing by machines of the

Consequently, smelter operators devoted a lot of money in the 1970s and 1980s to developing new, more efficient copper smelting processes. In addition, flash smelting technologies had been developed in earlier years and began to replace reverberatory furnaces. By 2002, 20 of the 30 reverberatory furnaces still operating in 1994 had been shut down. Flash furnace smelting. In flash smelting, the

conventional crushing and grinding (Shen and Forssberg, 2003; Schlesinger at al., 2011). The reverberatory furnace slag that has been discarded in the vicinity of the Bor Copper Smelter, Serbia, is currently processed by flotation at the nearby Bor Copper Concentrator. The copper recovery was rather low (about 40%) mainly due to the presence of oxide copper and insufficient mineral liberation

60 Centuries of Copper: Early Smelting Practice

Early Smelting Practice. Virtually all the ore used by the ancients was handpicked with only the most worthwhile material being taken. Originally it was probably smelted by the Sumerians in shallow pits using charcoal as the fuel. How they first derived the necessary draught to raise the temperature sufficiently to melt the ore is still a matter of speculation, but it may have been done by
