energy per ton of cathode copper produced, or about 21 percent of the energy consumed in pro-ducing copper (see figure 7-1 ). Approximately 59.7 percent of the energy is in the form of diesel or light fuel, 36.1 percent electricity, 2.4 percent gasoline, 1.0 percent natural gas, and 0.7 percent in some other form.3 Hauling operations account for around 65 percent of the total energy con-sumed ...

Current Energy Requirements in the Copper Producing ...

20/12/2013  An analysis of energy usage in the production of refined cathode copper was made from mining ore to cathode copper. In mining copper ore the greatest energy consumers are ore hauling and blasting. Another important factor is the “recovery efficiency” of the metallurgical processes used to extract the copper. The mining and mineral concentrating energies are directly proportional to the ...

Energy efficiency • Energy intensity in copper and gold

01/10/2017  The energy audit of mainly Australian copper and gold mines shows that 36 % of the overall energy consumption is attributable to comminution [1]. Previous studies had shown values between 18 % and 50 %. Fig. 10 shows that the specific comminution energy is a function of the copper grade of the ore, but also a function of the throughput of the mine and thus of the technology

Geothermal energy recovery from deep flooded copper

01/03/2019  The site exploration of a typical flooded copper mine in the U.P. was presented to discuss three essential components of the proposed large-scale energy application, i.e., bedrock geology, mining background, and energy reserve analyses considering the renewability of the energy. Dynamic energy reserve analyses revealed that the explored mine has a huge potential to provide the annual ...

Energy Consumption of Copper Smelter - Forums

The Bingham Canyon Mine is one of the world's largest open pit copper mines. Processing facilities include a concentrator, a 175-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power plant, a copper smelter, and a copper refinery. The operation produces 300,000 tons of refined copper per year plus significant quantities of gold, silver, and molybdenum. The mine employs approximately 1,600 people.

Chile copper mine reference project │ energyst

This copper mine processes approximately 230 kilotons per day of copper ore. It’s only logical, that this copper mine depends heavily on power supplies. But when this power is supplied through the existing, vulnerable regional grid a degree of uncertainty arises that is – understandably – unacceptable to our client. The regional grid has become an unreliable source of energy. Low ...
