Current Energy Requirements in the Copper Producing ...

2013-12-20  An analysis of energy usage in the production of refined cathode copper was made from mining ore to cathode copper. In mining copper ore the greatest energy consumers are ore hauling and blasting. Another important factor is the “recovery efficiency” of the metallurgical processes used to extract the copper. The mining and mineral concentrating energies are
