Why is the ore of mining copper crushed

Update date: Dec 07

Dec 26, 2015 After the mine has blasted the ore, the first reason why we crush rock is really to be able to transport it onto the next same. Conveyors and transfer chutes are limited in size and I say AMEN! to that as if you are left to the mining engineers, they’d blast and send 60″ rock to the SAG mill

    Scrap is already in a metallic form, so we can think of it as containing all of the energy previously expended to mine, crush, transport, smelt and refine copper ore. Very little of that energy need be expended again since the re-melting and re-refining of scrap are relatively clean, efficient processes

    May 02, 2016 When a copper-bearing mineral deposit is discovered, production begins with extraction of the ores via surface or underground mining or leaching — with open pit mining being the most common means of copper extraction today. Once the ores are mined, they’re crushed, ground, and concentrated via a flotation process
