The processing plant reflects a typical copper flotation plant. The rougher flotation produces a bulk concentrate and final tails, which is then reground and sent to cleaner flotation. The cleaner tails go to scavenger flotation, while the concentrate, with a grade of over 20% copper, goes to the next process.

What is a theoretical grade-recovery curve? An example

Oct 26, 2009 The theoretical grade-recovery curve for an ore is a definition of the maximum expected recovery by flotation of a mineral or element at a given grade. This is defined by the surface area liberation of the value minerals and is consequently directly related to the grind size utilised in the process. The theoretical grade-recovery can be readily used to quickly identify potential recovery

Chalcocite an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Copper is most commonly present in the earth's crust as copper–iron–sulfide and copper sulfide minerals, for example, chalcopyrite (CuFeS 2), bornite (Cu 5 FeS 4), and chalcocite (Cu 2 S). The concentrations of these minerals in an ore body are low. Typical copper ores contain from 0.5% Cu (open-pit mines) to 1−2% Cu (underground mines).

How to Calculate Grade and Recovery with Examples

Mar 02, 2021 The ore grade refers to the fraction of a useful element within the ore. It can also be used for gangue as the proportion of a non-valuable substance, but generally, when we use the term grade, we mean the grade of a valuable element. For example, a copper ore grade of 1% means that in 100 tons of the ore, we have 1 ton of copper.
