MANAGERIAL REVIEW Examining the copper value chain

The first step in the value is mining the ore. As the copper content of the ore has only 0.3-1.0 % copper, it is enriched by flotation to a copper concentrate with about 25-35 % copper to avoid processing of a high amount of gangue material. So copper concentrate is the first traded product with a value. There are mining companies with their own smelting and refining capacities producing ...
