    The copper mining process - KAZ Minerals

    The copper mining process. KAZ Minerals operates six producing mines. The three mines in East Region are underground while the Bozshakol, Aktogay and Bozymchak mines are open pit. The mines generally contain sulphide ores and by-products that vary in quantities and proportions between mines. The main by-products are zinc, silver, gold and

    The process yields concentrates containing roughly 30% copper, which are sequentially fed to a smelter, a furnace in which most of the some iron and sulfur are removed, then to a converter or converting furnace, where most of the remaining iron and other impurities are removed. (Depending on the type of smelting and converting furnace used, as

    A schematic diagram of the conventional process for the production of copper and the SX/EW process can be seen here. Conventional Copper Extraction . Conventionally, copper is recovered by a pyrometallurgical process known as smelting. In this process copper ore is mined, crushed, ground, concentrated, smelted and refined

    Copper Ore Processing Methods

    Apr 11, 2017 Copper Ore Processing Methods. The four major steps in the production of marketable copper are mining, concentrating, smelting, and refining. In a few instances, however, leaching takes the place of concentrating, smelting, and refining. At present, although considerable leaching and direct-smelting ores are produced, the bulk of the copper ore mined is concentrated
