Copper ore processing before reduction

During smelting, copper will be extracted from the malachite ore. The efficiency of our smelting process will be determined by calculating the copper yield: the percent of copper in the ore that was extracted by the smelt. Before coming to class, calculate the amount of copper in each crucible charge

This study is limited in general to percolation leaching as it is the most widely used method to give proper contact of solvent with the ore to effect extraction of the copper. One of the important factors in percolation leaching is the size reduction necessary for copper recovery within reasonable time limits
