Get this from a library. Comparative porphyry copper mining and processing costs - Alaska and Arizona. [Robert Bottge; United States. Bureau of Mines.] -- To better understand those factors which increase mining costs in Alaska, a Bureau of Mines study was conducted to compare the estimated costs of operating a ,tpd open pit copper mine located.

The Copper Mountain (Morenci) mining district is located approximately miles northeast of Tucson, Arizona (Figure 1). It lies along the southern boundary of the Transitional physiographic province, a rugged mountainous region that separates the Colorado Plateau from the Basin and Range province.

Copper, its occurrence, and use. What is copper. Copper is a chemical element in the periodic table with the symbol Cu (from the Latin word cuprum, meaning ‘metal of Cyprus,’ where it was mined during the Roman era).Copper has an atomic number of 29 and atomic weight of grams per mole.

It is an element in Group 11 of the periodic table, sharing many properties with silver and gold. The first mining of low-grade copper porphyry deposits from large open pits coincided roughly with the introduction of steam shovels, the construction of railroads, and a surge in market demand near the start of the 20th century.

Some mines exploit porphyry deposits that contain sufficient gold or molybdenum, but little or no copper. ic / comparative porphyry copper mining and processing costs – alaska and arizona, pb, $ 20 ic / the mine map repository – a source of mine map data, pb, $ 2 ic / methane emission from u.
