Copper Ore Crushing, Grinding Flotation

2017-5-21  The attraction of semi-autogenous grinding in copper operations is that they can accommodate ores that are hard or soft, wet or dry, sticky or otherwise. The SAG mill can handle everything that is presented to it, regardless of coarseness or fineness, or hardness or moisture content, and from it prepare satisfactory feed for subsequent secondary grinding

How to Process Copper Ore: Beneficiation Methods

2020-10-27  Before the beneficiation of copper ores, crushing and grinding are required. The bulk ores are crushed to about 12cm by a jaw crusher or a cone crusher. Then the crushed materials are sent to the grinding equipment, and the final particle size of the copper ore is reduced to 0.15-0.2mm. Copper ore crushing process.

In 1993, the company started operations for consolidated treatment of mixed copper oxides and fully sulfide copper ores and the use of thin-layer leaching. Mobile heap stacking on reusable pads was used for crushed ores (90% less than 12.5 mm) which were pre-agglomerated using water and sulfuric acid.

Energies Free Full-Text Comminution of Copper

The surface quality of the copper ore particles obtained as a result of the mechanical grinding operations is significantly different. The surface of such particles is generally devoid of any cavities and is characterized by a relatively high smoothness, which probably causes certain problems in their effective enrichment in the flotation process.

Copper Flotation - 911 Metallurgist

2016-5-16  Porphyry copper ores, usually medium to medium hard, require grinding to about 65-mesh to economically liberate the copper minerals from the gangue. Although a clean rougher tailing can often be achieved at 65-mesh the copper mineral is not liberated sufficiently to make a high grade copper concentrate, thus some form of regrinding is necessary on the rougher flotation copper
