Some observations on copper yields and ore grades ...

The average copper content of ore deposits is usually below the average yield of the ore accessed in the early years of production. The initial grades of new mines have not declined over the past forty years, and there has been no perceptible tendency for the average grade of porphyry deposits brought into production to decline over time.

Some Observations on Copper Yields and Ore Grades

2012-3-1  It has been observed that high grade ores are extracted first while low grade remain throughout the life time of a mine. Thus, the ore grade of copper decreases in time with exploitation [10]. In ...

Copper Yields And Ore Grade - koetter-formundtechnik

2021-4-10  Copper Yields And Ore Grade. Learning goals what is an ore deposit ,typical mines today have ore grades of only 0.6 percent copper. since metal concentrations occur at much lower grades, the copper concentrations are measured in parts per million If a sample has pm copper, this means that in million lbs of rock, there is lb of copper.

Copper - Declining copper ore grades AME

The average grade of copper ore mined has declined by 1.8% per year over the past 12 years to 0.59% in 2017. The fall is due to declining grades at some of the largest, long-life mines and the development of new low-grade mines. The declining grade trend will continue because of the same two factors.

The Ore Grade and Depth Influence on Copper Energy

2016-11-22  Their 1970s data for four copper mines in Arizona with an average 0.55% ore grade yielded 4.6 MJ energy cost added per kg copper moved for each 100 m of mining depth. In the study of (Harmsen et al. 2013 ), a cost value of 2.9 MJ was found for a 100 m of mining depth, and the weighted average depth was listed at 491 m for present day copper mines.

To calculate the grade of copper for the sample, geologists use the equation: (amount of copper metal/amount of copper ore rock)*100 2. If a deposit area has 200lbs of copper in 10,000lbs of ore rock, what is the grade? 200/10000*100=2% 3.
