Most copper ores contain only a small percentage of copper metal bound up within valuable ore minerals, with the remainder of the ore being unwanted rock or gangue minerals, typically silicate minerals or oxide minerals for which there is often no value. The average grade of copper ores in the 21st century is below 0.6% copper, with a proportion of economic ore minerals (including copper) being less than 2% of the total volume of the ore rock. A key objective in the metallurgical treatment of any ore is the separation of ore minerals from gangue minerals within the rock.
For copper ore crushing, you can choose copper ore Jaw Crusher, Cone Crusher, Impact Crusher and grinding mills such as Ball Mill, Vertical Roller Mill and Super-Micro Mill. For copper ore separating, you can use Magnetic Separator, Flotation Separator or Gravity Separator. You can choose the optional equipment such as Belt Conveyor, Vibrating Feeder and Vibrating Screener as well.

1. Larger Copper ore should be sent into the jaw crusher by vibrating feeder through a hopper for primary crushing.
2. After primary crushing, the material will be transferred to cone crusher by belt conveyor for secondary crushing; the crushed copper ore stone will then be transferred to vibrating screen for separating.
3. After separating, the parts which can meet standard will be transferred away as final products, while the rest in larger size will be returned to cone crusher, thus forming a closed circuit.
4. Size of final products can be adjusting and graded according to your specific requirement. The most suitable feeding size for further grinding equipment ball mill is about 0-10mm to keep the high grinding efficiency.
