Processing of Sulfur Copper by Flotation Method

 

In this method, unlike the methods used for oxidized ore and due to the estimated reserve of sulfur copper ore in God-e-Kalvari copper mine, the company has decided to invest on a plant to produce copper concentrate by flotation method with an annual feed capacity of 1,200,000 tons per year.
Currently, this project is in the stage of preliminary studies and experiments (Basic design).
In this method, copper sulfide ore must first be micronized in two stages of crushing and micronizing and reach a specific granulation, then in flotation cells, under special conditions and additives, the copper element is released in the form of concentrate with around 20-30% grade.
