Copper Mine, Techniques,Ores, Mines, Occurence, Processing

Copper is extracted in large amounts from the Earth's crust by mining of sulphide ores and also oxide ores. The procedure of copper processing involves mining and transporting. Oxide ores are generally processed through hydrometallurgy- heap leaching, solvent extraction and electrowinning.

Bioleaching is the extraction of metals from their ores through the use of living organisms.This is much cleaner than the traditional heap leaching using cyanide. Bioleaching is one of several applications within biohydrometallurgy and several methods are used to recover copper, zinc, lead, arsenic, antimony, nickel, molybdenum, gold, silver, and cobalt.
