The majority of copper is mined or extracted as copper sulfides from large open pit mines in porphyry copper deposits which have 0.4 to 1.0% copper content. Chile was the largest copper producer, followed by United States, Indonesia and Peru. The main applications of copper are used as metal for producing electrical wires, roofing and plumbing and industrial machinery. When higher hardness is required copper will be combined with other elements to make an alloy such as brass and bronze.
Copper ore crushing is the crucial preparation stage in copper ore processing, which produce fine particle copper materials for further processing. Of these crushing and processing plants involved, copper cone crusher plays important role in secondary and tertiary crushing process. Copper processing is a complex process, the copper materials first need to be crushed and grinded, and then go through beneficiation process to refine copper concentrate for final applications. Copper processing plants mainly includes jaw crusher, cone crusher, impact crusher, ball mill, Raymond mill, high pressure mill, ultrafine mill, vertical mill etc.
