  • What Is Copper Smelting with pictures Info

    Kirsten C Tynan Copper wire Copper smelting is the process of separating copper metal from the rock in which it is naturally embedded by melting it This is accomplished through a series of several processing steps The term copper smelting may refer to this melting step in particular or it may refer somewhat less formally to the entire process overall

  • How copper is made material used

    The process of extracting copper from copper ore varies according to the type of ore and the desired purity of the final product Each process consists of several steps in which unwanted materials are physically or chemically removed and the concentration of copper is progressively increased Some of these steps are conducted at the mine site itself while others may be conducted at separate
