Natural copper rock refers to rocks that contain high concentrations of native copper. These rocks are typically found in areas where copper-rich solutions have percolated through the ground and deposited copper minerals within the rock. Natural copper rock can be found in various geological settings, including volcanic rocks, sedimentary rocks, and metamorphic rocks. The natural copper is red, with a black oxide film on the surface. Its relative density is 8.4~8.94, and its ductility is strong. It is soluble in dilute HNO3, and the solution turns sky blue after adding ammonia.
In terms of appearance, natural copper rock can range from a bright, shiny metallic color to a dull brown or green color. The color of the rock depends on the concentration of copper minerals within it. The copper in natural copper rock can be extracted and refined for use in a variety of applications, including electrical wiring, plumbing, and construction.
The natural copper ore processing and production process mainly includes three processes: crushing, grinding, and beneficiation. In the crushing process, three-stage closed-circuit crushing is modern and suitable for high-hardness copper ore crushing. It can complete the crushing and partial dissociation of the ore, thereby improving the subsequent grinding efficiency. In the grinding process, the second-stage and one-closed grinding is a grinding mill. The ore process can make the copper ore grinding more fully. Among the beneficiation processes, the more successful new processes that have emerged in recent years are representative of the mixed flotation process.
The natural copper rock crusher includes jaw crusher, impact crusher, hammer crusher, and other related equipment such as ball mill, flotation machine, and rotary dryer.
