• Copper Occurrence principles of extraction Properties

    Extraction of copper from copper pyrites involves the following steps. 1. Crushing and concentration. The ore is crushed and then concentrated by froth-floatation process. 2. Roasting. The concentrated ore is heated strongly in the reverberatory furnace in excess of air. During roasting i) Moisture is removed.
