Mining in India

The metallic minerals comprise ferrous and non-ferrous minerals, while the nonmetallic minerals comprise mineral fuels, precious stones, among others. D.R. Khullar holds that mining in India depends on over 3,100 mines, out of which over 550 are fuel mines, over 560 are mines for metals, and over 1970 are mines for extraction of nonmetals.

Copper

Copper. Copper (Cu) is an extremely useful industrial metal that is ductile (capable of being drawn into wire), malleable (capable of being hammered and molded) and an excellent conductor of electricity (only silver is better). Copper is found in many minerals that occur in deposits large enough to mine.

RECOVERY OF METAL VALUES FROM COPPER—ARSENIC

Copper is often associated with arsenic in mixed sulphide minerals such as enargite (Cu3AsS4) and tennantite (Cu12As4S13). Enargite, in particular, is the principal mineral in many deep epithermal copper–gold deposits. Most mining companies avoid exploiting such resources, because the arsenic can become a serious environmental liability or

Copper mining. From ore to copper.

About 80% of all copper extracted comes from sulphide ores. A typical ore contains only 0.5% to 2.0% copper.
