Copper Industry Flow Sheet Mineral Processing
The flow diagram below shows how the percentage of copper increases as the ore is refined, first physically by froth flotation, then chemically by smelting and finally electrolytic refining. The smelting stage gives the name pyroprocessing processing by fire. (Courtesy of Xstrata.) The smelter for sulfide ores produces sulfur dioxide gas.
