Operating Cost Of Copper Ore Mining

Mine operating costs and the potential impacts of energy ...

2014-2-1  In a review of mine costs and sizes for base metals such as copper and zinc, Crowson (2003) found that the costs of production per tonne of metal produced decreased with mine size, and was highly dependent on ore grade and the technology available for processing. Moreover, Crowson identified these impacts on mine cost as themselves being ...
