Jaw Crushers Overhead Copper Ore Highlights

Highlights Copper ores copper oxide ore and copper sulfide ore were crushed by a jaw crusher and by HPGR. Crushed and sized products were evaluated for particle damage and copper grain exposure by X-ray computed tomography. Column leaching was done to determine the rate and extent of copper recovery. HPGR crushed products have more particle damage and higher copper recoveries.

The HPGR-crushed granitic secondary sulfide copper ore showed an 8% higher copper leach extraction. Based on these tests (and earlier test work), it is concluded that the use of HPGR in a tertiary crushing application as projected by the authors may increase copper extractions in oxide copper ores from 2-6%, in secondary sulfide ores from 3-10%

Are there Differences in Size Distribution when Comparing

The leaching process uses ore crushed to 100% passing 8 mm to optimise copper recovery. Acid consumption generally increases with a higher proportion of fines. Marcobre is investigating a three-stage crushing circuit with high pressure grinding rolls (HPGR) in the third stage, instead of the more conventional four-stage cone crushing circuit.
