Copper mining wastes make up the largest percentage of metal mining and processing wastes generated in India. There is a broad range of flotation concentrations in copper mining wastes.
Mining of metals generates considerably amounts of waste materials. These generally have very little economic value, making their exploitation not profitable, though they often have the potential to pose a long-term threat and cause damage to the environment. Mine wastes vary depending on their physical and chemical composition, the type of mining and the way the mineral is processed.
Millions of tonnes of ore are processed every year by the mining industry, >95% of which is disposed of in the form of waste rocks and mining tailings. The latter are finely ground rock particles generated during the processing of ore materials and separation of target metal minerals, and are highly reactive because of their small particle size and content of reactive minerals, such as pyrite (FeS2). Mine tailings may contain base transition metals, such as iron, copper, nickel and zinc, in relatively high concentrations, and also occasionally precious metals such as gold and silver, in minerals (and native metals) that have been not been separated by froth flotation.
Silica sand used for water purification and manufacture of glass, synthetic foundry moulding catalysts, disodium ultramarine etc. it is also used for acid heat resistant ceramics, refractories, pottery glaze, enamel etc.
It is used to manufacture steel and used in civil engineering like reinforced concrete, girders etc. and make alloy steels like carbon steels with additives such as nickel, chromium, vanadium, tungsten, and manganese.
Presently, copper is used in building construction, power generation and transmission, electronic product manufacturing, and the production of industrial machinery and transportation vehicles. Copper wiring and plumbing are integral to the appliances, heating and cooling systems, and telecommunications links used every day in homes and businesses. Copper is an essential component in the motors, wiring, radiators, connectors, brakes, and bearings used in cars and trucks.
Precious Metals & PG Metals
It is used for Automotive and its suppliers, Chemical and petrochemical, Electronics, Glass industry, pharmaceutical, Fertilizer & Jewellery industry
Micronutrients are essential plant nutrients that are found in trace amounts in tissue but play an imperative role in plant growth and development. Without these nutrients, plant nutrition would be compromised leading to potential declines in plant productivity.
