THE GEOLOGY OF COPPER Copper occurs in three different mineral groups (see table 5 1). In sulfide mineral deposits, the copper is linked with sulfur. In carbonate depos its, the copper occurs with carbon and oxygen. In silicate mineral deposits, the copper is linked with silicon and oxygen. The latter two groups are also termed oxide ores.
Copper extraction refers to the methods used to obtain copper from its ores.The conversion of copper consists of a series of physical and electrochemical processes. Methods have evolved and vary with country depending on the ore source, local environmental regulations, and other factors.
Government approved permits are required for all new and ongoing mining operations, including exploration activities. This permitting process ensures that environmental standards are maintained from the beginning to the end of mining and metal production operations.

The barren rock, or gangue has to be separated from the sulfide minerals in order to smelt the metallic copper from the ore. By far the greatest proportion of copper is extracted from the sulfides of copper, iron and sometimes other metals. Such ores originate from sulfur bearing volcanic magmas, which have separated into metal sulfides and siliceous melts.
What is mining? Mining is the extraction (removal) of minerals and metals from earth. Manganese, tantalum, cassiterite, copper, tin, nickel, bauxite (aluminum ore), iron ore, gold, silver, and diamonds are just some examples of what is mined. Why mine? Mining is a money making business.

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

For humans, the requirement is quite low as well, merely 2mg of copper a day for adults. Yet too little copper in your diet can lead to high blood pressure and higher levels of cholesterol. Interestingly for copper the gap separating the required amount and the toxic amount is quite small. It may be the smallest for all the required trace metals.
