  • 2. Mining Methods Copper

    Open pit mining is a technique used to extract copper ore near the earth's surface. Open pit mining is the most widely used technique of mining copper today. It is accomplished by creating and using benches or terraces to gradually reach deeper under the earth's surface. Underground mining is used when the copper ore is not near the earth's surface. Miners dig a shaft into the

  • Open-pit copper mining, smelting, and production

    NARRATOR: In the United States huge copper open-pit mines such as this one can be found in Utah and Montana. Engineers look for green-colored rock, which indicates the presence of copper. Electric shovels scoop the copper-ore rocks from the earth all day and night. The trucks carry their loads to ore-dressing plants, where the ore is crushed in several stages and ground into a fine powder that

  • OPERATIONS MODELING AND ANALYSIS OF OPEN PIT COPPER MINING

    Open pit copper mining plants usually comprise two major components, the open pit mining operation and the copper ore enrichment plant. An open pit copper mine is an excavation or graze made into the sur- face of the ground for the purpose of extracting ore. A series of data obtained by a transportation control system with GPS (Global Positioning System) technology is utilized to perform the

  • Open Pit Mining an overview ScienceDirect Topics

    Open-pit mining is the process of extracting rock or minerals from the earth through their removal from an open pit or borrow. Figure 8.8. Open-pit mine [16]. Surface mining is usually used to develop coal seams and deposits of many other minerals, but their feasibilities vary with the nature of the body ore. Large, low-grade ore deposits are usually economically attractive because it permits

  • Basics of an open pit mine Mine Engineer.Com

    Open pit mines can be used in coal mining, and they are used extensively in "hard rock" mining for ores such as metal ores, copper, gold, iron, aluminum, and many minerals. In a open pit coal mine, the pit bottom would be the bottom mined coal seam elevation, since it is usually feasible to extract multiple seams when surface mining coal.

  • Chino copper mine (Santa Rita Copper Mine), New

    The Chino open-pit copper mining complex is fully owned and operated by Freeport McMoRan. The Chino mine commenced production with the commissioning of the original concentrator in 1911 which was replaced by a new facility in 1982. A smelter for the mine was commissioned in 1939 and was upgraded in 1985 before its permanent closure in 2005. The mine was owned and operated by
