3M Mining and Metallurgy Solutions for Copper Mining

Copper mining in the United States has been a major industry since the 1840s. Copper is produced from primary mines as well as a by-product of polymetallic and gold mines. In open pit mines the process begins with extracting sulphide and oxide ores by digging or blasting before the material is turned into pure copper cathode in two different ways: leaching & electrowinning or smelting and electrolytic refining. Building construction is the largest end-use market for copper products, but it can also be found in electrical and electronic products, transportation equipment, consumer products and industrial machinery and equipment.

3M Mining and Metallurgy Solutions works with companies that produce copper, helping them improve productivity, protect their workers, and minimize their impact on the environment.
