copper is also extracted from oxidised ores including copper silicates, carbonates and sulphates. here, the copper ores are crushed and ground as above, but they are then leached with sulphuric acid to produce an impure copper sulphate solution. the solution is purified using solvent extraction and electrode twinning.copper ores. An ore is a rock containing enough valuable mineral to make it worth extracting. In the case of copper, it is worth extracting when there is about kg of copper per 1,000 kg of ore copper minerals are found in over one hundred varieties, although only a few have been worked for copper on a large scale.jun 07, 2021 copper processing facilities are usually located near mining or extraction sites. significant waste volumes are associated with copper production. mine wastes may contain radionuclides due to their natural presence in ores and can be a source of tenorm. uranium, which may be co-located with copper ore, may also be recovered as a side stream, if copper mining: the commonest ore used in the extraction of copper is chalcopyrite also known as copper pyrites and other such sulphides. the percentage of copper in the actual ore is too low for direct extraction of copper to be viable. the concentration of ore is required and it is done by the froth flotation method.
