    Porphyry type copper mine is a kind of copper mine, which can be used in large scale of mechanical open mining. The reserves of ore is up to several hundred million ton. Copper grade is less than 1 percent. According to the statistics of 103 porphyry type deposit in the world, single deposit ore reserves is up to 5.5 hundred million, copper grade is 0.6 percent. Porphyry type is one of the most important copper mine industrial types.


    (1) Circum pacific belt, including long and narrow porphyry copper mine at the edge of North American. For example, Canada, America, Mexico, Panama, Peru, Chile, etc.
    (2) Tethys porphyry copper belt, including Hungary, Iran, Pakistan
    (3) Central Asia-Mongolia, important deposit distributed in Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, central north parts of Mongolia, etc.

    Sandy Shale Type

    Sandy Shale Type Copper Mine is referred to strata-bound which in the sedimentary rock in different age. Deposit is produced in a set of sedimentary rock or sedimentary metamorphic rock, which is one of the main industrial types of copper mine in the world, accounting for 30 percent of the copper reserves in the world.
    Deposit has feature of large scale, high grade, abundant associated component, so its economic value is large.


    This kind of deposit is distributed widely in the world, except above mentioned copper strip, also including original soviet union, America, west of America, south west of Canada, and Bolivia. Recent years, the large copper mine which was discovered in Afghanistan and Brazil belong to sandy shale type copper mine.

    Pyrite Type Copper Mine

    Pyrite type copper mine is referred to deposit that connecting with submarine volcanism with large number of pyrite and certain quantity copper, lead, zinc. The West mostly call it blocky sulfide deposit, at present, it was discovered 420 with same kind deposit. Canada, America, Original Soviet Union, Spain, Portugal, Cyprus, South Africa, Japan are all the important product place of this kind of deposit.

    Blocky Sulfide Mine

    This modern deposit was discovered firstly ridge of East Atlantic near to the 21 degree of north latitude in 1978. Although copper and tinc has a high grade (copper 6 percent, zinc 29 percent), a multiple metal blocky sulfide deposit was discovered on the ridge, it is 970 length, 200 width, 35 height with 25 million ton of ore quantity. It meets the needs of industrial deposit and the max of copper in ore is 11 percent, tinc is 0.8 percent, including little silver (PPM), Molybdenum (0.03 percent), tin (0.03 percent).

  • Development Tendency

    1. Global copper consumption is still keeping certain increasing speed, but the growing rate recedes. Since 1990s, with the increase of international copper consumption, two types of countries play an important part. One type is North America and developed countries in Europe, like America, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Britain, Japan, etc.
    The other one is Asian and developing countries, less developed countries and areas in South America, such like China, India, Korea, Taiwan province of China, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia, Brazil, Chile, etc.
    2. Great development strength on global copper mine, but the supply is still tense in short term:
    At the background of rapid increasing of the global copper price and the continual tense of the mineral resources supply, the price of copper concentrate is rising all the way. At the same time of great rise of the ore enterprise profit, it stimulates mine enterprise to enlarge resource development strength, promotes quick improvement of the capacity.
    3. The fluctuation range of the global copper price is great recently: in the past few years, copper shows two properties, one property for commodity, one property for metal. Copper as commodity, always in the state of tense supply in the past few years, the price of copper keeps increasing.
    4. The pace of global large scale of copper enterprise recombination speeds up. Monopoly of mine resources increasing intensifying: the wave of economic globalization has fluctuates to every field, copper industry is no exception.
