Copper Flotation - Mineral Processing & Metallurgy

The flotation of native copper ores is nearly always preceded by gravity concentration in jigs and tables not only because the combined process is more economical as regards costs, but also because the copper often occurs as large grains which flatten out during grinding and cannot be broken to a size small enough for flotation.

Bioleaching of copper ore flotation concentrates ...

01-01-2003· The bioleaching of flotation concentrate is a new method for copper recovery that could form the basis of an economic and environmentally friendly process. The main objective of this work was to evaluate a bioleaching process from the treatment of two concentrates, (i) a copper gold bearing concentrate and (ii) an ordinary copper flotation concentrate, using mesophilic bacteria.

What is Copper Concentrate? - arijco.com

Copper sulfide ores must be concentrated before they can be economically transported and smelted. The universal technique for this concentration is the froth flotation of finely ground ore. Froth flotation involves attaching fine Cu-sulfide mineral elements to bubbles and floating them out of a water–ore mixture.
