Mineral processing is a major division in the science of Extractive Metallurgy. Extractive metallurgy has been defined as the science and art of extracting metals from their ores, refining them and preparing them for use. an ore containing the mineral chalcopyrite (CuFeS2) derives its value from the contained copper. Magnetic Separation
Blebs and masses of chalcopyrite are found in the vein. It is then crushed, ground, and separated into metallics, nickel sulphides and copper sulphides by magnetic separation and flotation in the Matte Separation Plant. All of the precious metalbearing metallic, and some of the nickel oxide, are sent to the Copper Cliff Nickel Refinery.
Thus, the Cu dissolved selectively, producing a highCu filtrate from which Cu can be recovered by cementation or by electrolysis. Flotation of CuSFeS2 mixtures indies partitioned phases can be physically separated if effective liberation can be achieved. Magnetic separation tests yielded less promising results.
Copper extraction refers to the methods used to obtain copper from its ores.The conversion of copper consists of a series of physical and electrochemical processes. Methods have evolved and vary with country depending on the ore source, local environmental regulations, and other factors.
