copper concentrate process

Ultra fine milling of the ore or concentrate is not required; Faster reaction kinetics and smaller process equipment than bio-oxidation; and High gold recoveries (>95%) possible over a wide range of feed composition (1.5 to 40 wt% S, 0.1 to 20 wt% As) and sulphide mineralogy.

MECHANISM OF COPPER CONCENTRATE OXIDATION

and kinetics of roasting process of sulphide copper concentrate is of a crucial significance in autogenous processes of smelting of copper [1] and many researchers give their contribution to this topic. So, Bayer and Wiedermann [2] have shown that the oxidation of pure CuFeS2 starts at 400 oC, while addition of alkali salts decreases the starting temperature of oxidation process to 200 oC.

It becomes so hot that the copper concentrate immediately ignites when it is blown into the furnace along with oxygen and a silica-bearing flux. The silica flux binds with the iron and other impurities and keeps them separated from the copper.Liquid copper and iron fall to the bottom of the furnace like a molten metal rain, while the sulfur combines with oxygen to form sulfur dioxide gas.
