Overview of copper

Copper is a reddish orange, soft metal that has bright metallic luster. It is a malleable, ductile, and is an excellent conductor of heat and electricity of all metals, only silver has a higher electrical conductivity. Copper surfaces exposed to air with high humidity, gradually fading to a dull brownish color. With constant and prolonged contact with moist air copper roof will slowly corrode to form the carbonate compound green, which consists of copper sulphate.

Main physico-mechanical properties

  • Density, kg/m3 — 8890;
  • Melting point, 0 C — 1083;
  • The thermal conductivity in the temperature range 20…3000, W/mgrad — 390;
  • The coefficient of linear expansion, µm/deg — 16,8;
  • Specific heat, j/kgrad — 0,375;
Mechanical properties (20°C)
Copper Hardness E (GPa) σв(MPa) sT(MPa) δ5(%)
annealed 45 MPa 117 190 70 60
nagarebana 110 MPa 135 360 300 6
  • δ5 (%) — elongation
  • E (GPA) Is the Modulus of elasticity,
  • σв(MPa) — the ultimate short-term strength
  • sT — the Limit of proportionality

Copper mining

Underground mining of the road and generally limited to rich ores, as it happens in Chile, in the mines of El Teniente. Mining in the quarry used when copper wires are extensive, have a low level and relatively close to the surface, where they can be extracted after removing the overburden. Chile also boasts the world’s largest (by volume) open pit Escondida.

After extraction of ore it is first crushed mechanically, as a result, all mineral particles of copper are released from rocks. Flotation by injection of air and intensive mixing with the pulverized ore is held in suspension in water, to which is added a surfactant. This method produces copper concentrate, which is fed into the melting furnace — Converter. There is a final removal of impurities, primarily iron and sulfur.
