It has long been established that copper sulphide processing follows a logical progression--crush, grind, float, regrind and refloat to produce a final copper concentrate.
The rig will enable the company to double its drill capacity to more than 12,000 metres per season, swiftly advancing the project to a production design appropriate for the treatment of the nickel copper sulphide ores.
From February 2009 to December 2010, Finders successfully operated a 5 tonne per day Solvent Extraction/Electro Winning ('SX/EW') demonstration plant to test copper sulphide leach kinetics, optimise process design and provide data required for project finance.
He will also make important contributions to the upcoming feasibility study for the La Arena copper sulphide deposit.
In the past, these have been a good guide as all EM conductors drilled to date have intersected copper sulphide zones.
The ore treated in the gold leaching process contains copper, which is removed as copper sulphide.
We previously reported the preparation and characterization of copper sulphide layers on polyethylene film (PE) of various densities by the sorption-diffusion method [2,3].
In an August 28, 2007 press release, assay results from drill-hole number one intersected visible copper sulphide mineralization (chalcopyrite) in a peridotite geological setting.
Meanwhile, development in the Democratic Republic of Congo of what is thought to be the largest high-quality copper sulphide orebody in the world is marking time as risk insurers wait for a cessation to the war in that country.
The Carola mine, located near the city of Copiapo, incorporates some 5 km of underground tunnels resulting from the extraction of ore containing just under 2% copper sulphide.
The Snowbird Tectonic Zone is a geologic feature that is considered to be highly prospective for magmatic nickel copper sulphide mineralization and is known to host several deposits including Strongbow's Nickel King Ni-Cu-Co deposit in the Northwest Territories immediately to the north of the Snowbird project.
Igor Gonzales, President and CEO of Sierra Metals stated: Todays results represent the existence of high-grade polymetallic mineralization at the Northern extension of Cuye, and suggest the possibility of even further mineralization at depth specifically from the copper sulphide orebodies which contain significant widths as shown in figure 5.
