Copper Concentration Process

The majority of primary copper production originate from low-grade or poor sulfide ores. After enrichment steps, the copper concentrates are usually treated by pyrometallurgical methods. Generally, copper extraction follows the steps (copper concentrate processing plant flowsheet):

1. Beneficiation by froth flotation of ore to give copper concentrate(Optional partial roasting to obtain oxidized material or calcines)

2. Two-stage pyrometallurgical extraction: smelting concentrates to matte; converting matte by oxidation to crude copper

3. Refining the crude copper, usually in two steps: pyrometallurgically to fire-refined copper; electrolytically to high-purity electrolytic copper

Copper Froth Flotation Machine

Froth flotation is the standard method of concentration used in the copper industry. About 75 percent of all copper is produced by this method. The most significant technological development in flotation in recent years is the column flotation cell, which is being installed at most concentrators.

Froth flotation is carried out using reagents that, when dissolved in water, create hydrophobic forces that cause the values to float. Reagents can be added prior to entering the initial rougher flotation stage and during subsequent steps in the flotation operation. The reagents used in flotation concentrators are called collectors, depressants, activators, frothers, flocculants, filtering aides, and pH regulator.
