Extractive Metallurgy of Copper

Pure copper metal is mostly produced from these ores by concentration, smelting, and refining. About 80% of the world's copper-from-ore is produced by concentration/smelting/ refining of sulfide ores. The other 20% is produced by heap leaching/solvent extraction/electrowinning of oxide, and chalcocite ores.

According to Cox and Singer [], the average copper ore grade in the mine (x m) was 1.67% around 1990 and in the case of the 25 copper mines analyzed, the average ore grade is 1.48%. These selected mines produced more than 5 million tons in 2021, which corresponded to 32% of the total world production that same year [ 42 ].
