Copper Mining and Extraction Sulfide Ores
The world’s largest copper ore deposits are found in Chile on the west coast of South America. This is due to the volcanic activity that is part of the process that created the Andes mountain chain.,To get at the copper the first stage is crushing in huge cylindrical ball mills. Ball mills crush the ore into a fine powder.

The Mining Platform identifies mine type (above-ground, underground and solution) and mining method.Tritton Underground - Aeris Resources,Actual plant capacity is 1.7 to 1.8 million tonnes per annum, depending on ore hardness and variations in ore supply and quality. Maintenance completed four planned major shutdowns during the year for re-lining of the grinding mills, (SAG mill, Ball mill, Vertical mill), and repairs. Availability between planned shutdowns was excellent.
