Copper ore resources in Chile

Copper is due to the volcanism and intrusion of land formation. Copper generally occurs in the interior of the intrusive rock or contact with the surrounding rock. In general, this type of copper deposits are mainly distributed in the plate collision zone or squeeze the fault zone.The geographical location of Chile squarely in such a zone. Therefore,copper resources of Chile is very rich.The vast majority of concentration distribution in central and northern areas and there is a streak rock copper mineralization belt.Here is rich in copper ore. Along with the development of the national economy, Chile's copper ore mining is on the road to rapid development.

Copper process from ore by metal

In Chile, the copper ore is need to pass a variety of different step into the metal processing. Common copper mineral processing process, mainly including:


Large native ore are fed into the jaw crusher after vibrating feeder simple screening.Through the deep V broken cavity of the jaw crusher, the granularity of raw materials turn into a small stones, then the material will be sent to the PE series jaw crusher by the conveyor belt.Under the powerful force, the material is broken.In this step,larger material return to PFseries impact crusher to be broken again into particles; Medium granularity material sent into fine sand making machine, plastic: qualified graded materials by sand washer as the final product after cleaning.

Sand making machine

Medium finely granular materials should be send into sand making machine, by the circular vibration screen for screening, larger grained material return to the sand making machine is broken again and the qualified products sent to store stock pile storage by belt conveyor.Fine material should sent into the sand washing machine to be clean. Material cleaned by the sand washer and as part of the final product can be sent to store stock pile by the belt conveyor.


According to the properties of the elements,we can choose some suitable mineral processing equipment classification and magnetic separation, flotation, or re-election.This step requires a combination of these various processing methods to processe the copper ore into metal.

Nowdays,Chile's copper process from ore to meta mainly includes: dry and wet method. Dry is through melting smelting and electrolytic production of cathode copper,which is electrolytic copper, generally suitable for the high grade copper sulphide. The wet method is suitable for low grade copper oxide, wet production of refined copper called electrolytic coppers.
