Chapter 6 Copper Production Technology

1996-11-20  mans found nearly 100 lens-shaped ore bodies in the Rio Tinto copper district. Modern geologists have found only a few additional deposits, and almost all of Rio Tinto’s modern production has been from ore first discovered by the Remans.3 At Rio Tinto, the Remans mined the upper, ox-idized, part of the ore and collected the copper-

Flowsheet considerations for copper cobalt projects

2015-4-22  The basis of the plant design is the treatment of an oxide/secondary sulphide deposit treating a 4 per cent copper head grade and a 0.05 per cent cobalt head grade at a treatment rate of 2.5 million tons per annum. This will provide a feed tonnage of 100 000 tons and 1325 tons per annum of copper and cobalt respectively. The design basis of the ...
