Chapter 6 Copper Production Technology.2 Hydrometallurgy is the recovery of metaIs from ores using water-based solutions. As early as 6000 B. C., native copperthe pure metalwas foundas reddish stones in the Med- iterranean area and hammered into utensils, weapons, and tools. Around 5000 B. C., artisans discovered that heat made copper more malle-able.
AEROPHINE174 Applications Solvay.Gold-Copper Ores. In ores where Au has greater value than Cu, AEROPHINE promoters enable flotation at lower pH than xanthates, reducing lime usage and thus improving Au recovery. Having greater stability than xanthates allows them to be used under harsher low pH conditions where xanthates decompose to produce toxic H2S gas.
Energy and materials flows in the copper industry.The copper industry comprises both the primary copper industry, which produces 99.9-pure copper from copper ore, and the secondary copper industry, which salvages and recycles copper-containing scrap metal to extract pure copper or copper alloys. The United States uses about 2 million tons of copper annually, 60 of it for electrical applications.
