Copper Mining and Extraction: Sulfide Ores
This KS3 education resource looks at copper mining, extraction and pyroprocessing of sulfide ores. About Copper. Copper and Copper Alloys;,Copper mines are only set up where there is more than 5 kg of copper per tonne of rock (0.5% by mass). Ideally, the figure should be closer to 2%.,Laboratory electrolysis. In copper refining many,Introduction to electrolysis - electrolytes and non,,Electrolytic cell : The complete set-up for electrolysis is called the electrolytic cell. This consists of the vessel containing the electrolyte, anode, cathode, battery and wires. Electrolytic cell is also known as a voltameter, since it generates voltage (or current) at its two terminals.purification of copper by electrolysis metal extraction,,Purification of Copper by Electrolysis (extraction from ore above) The impure copper from a smelter is cast into a block to form the positive anode. The cathode is made of previously purified copper. These are dipped into an electrolyte of copper(II) sulphate solution.
