 · The aim of this paper is to assess the effect of microwave treatment on copper sulfide ore for ball milling and bed breakage. Liberation analysis of ground products in eight size fractions showed that microwave pretreatment liberated more chalcopyrite particles from the bed breakage product than the ball mill product. In bed breakage, microwave pretreatment caused a 2% increase in chalcopyrite ...

The removal of lead from chalcopyrite surfaces in relation ...

Additionally, the lead remaining on the chalcopyrite surface was found to be concentrated in the fine particle size range, a phenomenon not observed in the grinding operations conducted in a tumbling mill. The nature of the lead species present on the chalcopyrite surface precludes the easy removal of lead by chemical means.

Primary gold mineralization is typically associated with pyrite/chalcopyrite sulphides and quartz/dolomite gangue. There is a correlation between vein frequency and gold grade. Weathering locally modified the mineralization, to depths typically up to 200m, with the boundary between oxide and primary mineralization being irregular.

How copper is made

The slag may be fed back into the flash furnace to act as a flux, and the sulfur dioxide is processed through the acid plant. After the slag is removed, a final injection of oxygen removes all but a trace of sulfur. The resulting molten material is called the blister and contains about 99% copper by weight.
