Copper Mining and Extraction

Copper Mining and Extraction
Copper Mining and Extraction
Developed by SEPUP

SCIENTIFIC CONCEPTS / PROCESSES
  • Chemical reactions are used to extract and recover copper from ore
  • Chemicals such as copper and its compounds react in characteristic ways to form new substances with different properties
  • Natural resources, such as copper, are used to maintain and improve quality of life
  • The by-products of ore processing can become potentially toxic wastes
  • Decisions involving resource use should be made with an understanding of the trade-offs involved

Copper and other raw materials contribute to our technological lifestyle, but the byproducts of extracting copper from ore are potential toxic wastes. In this activity, students explore the properties of copper and copper ore. They conduct two reactions used to extract and recover copper from the ore. This process introduces single and double replacement reactions. Students also consider the wastes produced by the extraction process.
