2020518&ensp·&enspContinuing with the evaluation of copper oxide flotation using hydroxamate we now evaluate a rock thats 41% copper oxide with some lead oxide included. Sample B: 1.8% Copper about 41% Oxide Cu Rougher Tests: Unseen in these charts is the order in which the results were obtained. The last/best Blue dot (the best data point) was the last test of the series. Oxflo selectivity
2020516&ensp·&enspCopper oxide ores have occasionally been treated via froth flotation via sulfidation of the oxide minerals with certain chemicals which react with the oxide mineral particles to produce a thin rime of sulfide (usually chalcocite), which can then be activated by the froth flotation plant.
Most of the copper ores mined today are oxide or sulfide ores. Extraction of sulfide ores is covered in more detail in Copper Mining and Extraction: Sulfide Ores (1114), but is introduced here because an important byproduct of this process is used for the extraction of oxide ores.

Sample C: 1.7% Copper about 60% Oxide Cu Rougher Tests: Both reagents appear to behave similarly as the blue dots are seemingly a continuation of the trend started by red dots. Oxflo and Axis show that the more %Mass you recover
Copper processing is a complicated process that begins with mining of the ore (less than 1% copper) and ends with sheets of 99.99% pure copper called cathodes, which will ultimately be made into products for everyday use.The most common types of ore, copper oxide and copper sulfide, undergo two different processes, hydrometallurgy and pyrometallurgy, respectively, due to the different
