Low grade ores Smelt, leach or concentrate? ScienceDirect

A study was therefore undertaken using life cycle assessment methodology to examine various alternative processing routes for extracting metal from low grade ores down to 0.1 metal, particularly those of copper and nickel, in terms of their life cycle based energy consumption embodied energy and greenhouse gas emissions.

Copper Smelting Chemistry Tutorial AUS e TUTE

A typical copper ore contains between 0.5 and 2.0 copper. A high grade ore produces a high yield of metal. A low grade order produces a low yield of metal. Copper can be extracted from sulfide ores usually higher grade ores by direct smelting. The earliest evidence of copper smelting occurs in Serbian artefacts dating from around 5000 BC. Copper can be extracted from oxide ores using

Copper Mining and Processing: Processing of Copper Ores

Copper oxides are more abundant near the surface, but are considered low grade ore, with a lower concentration of copper. Although this requires more ore to be extracted and processed, this process is less expensive, so oxides can still be mined at a profit. On the other hand, while copper sulfide ores are less abundant, they contain higher amounts of copper. Although the processing costs are
