• Mill-leach-waste cutoff grades for sulphidic copper ore

    Mar 01, 1984· Recent mining literature on cutoff grade theory has come to reflect some viewpoints and analyses expressed earlier in the economic literature. Agreement is best when the cutoff grade policy is established by analysis in stages, starting from the limits of the deposit, and using the maximum net present value objective. In the derivation of the optimal cutoff grade policy a dynamic programming

    The process is continuous and it is done on a large scale—10 3 to 10 5 tonnes of ore feed per day. Beneficiation is begun with crushing and wet-grinding the ore to typically 10–100μm. This ensures that the copper mineral grains are for the most part liberated from the worthless minerals.

    Aug 01, 2015· When Ore sample A was treated with 3.67 kWh t − 1 pulse energy, 61% feed particles were broken with a grade of 0.244% copper, and 39% particles were unbroken with 0.109% copper. In such a splitting process, the low grade ore is not rejectable, but the procedure provides the genuine high grade and low grade ores for the separate comminution

    The mill consists of a rotating shaft with four attached parallel knives and a screen occupying one fourth of the 360 degree rotation. The mill is best used to crack whole grains with a minimum of "fines". It is not used as a final process for reducing the size of ingredients used in fish feeds. 2.5 Screening

    Copper is the name of a metallic element with an atomic number of 29. The name ‘Copper’ comes from ‘Cyprium’ which means the metal of Cyprus where the mining of the copper began. Copper is being mined for thousands of years and it is a vital metal of mankind with very high electrical and thermal conductivity. Copper has
