Copper Environmental Profile

2019-3-4  copper mining: surface and underground mining. Due to copper being spread in relatively low concentrations over large areas, surface, or open-pit mining, is the predominant mining method for copper in the world. After mining, copper is produced by one of two process routes: pyrometallurgical or hydrometallurgical.

2021-10-1  Energy in the copper mining industry is needed in three forms namely: electricity, heat, and fuel. The share of each form of energy is 35% electricity, 26% Diesel-fuel, and 20% biomass-fuel. The cost of energy is currently high and represents about 25–30% of total operating costs ( Cochilco, 2020 ).

Major Mines Projects Grasberg Mine

The mill produces copper and gold concentrate from mined ore through a process to separate valuable minerals from the impurities covering them. The main steps in the process are crushing, grinding, flotation, and dewatering. Crushing and grinding transform ore size into fine sand in order to release particles containing copper and gold.
