The conductivity of chalcocite, the richest copper sulphide

2021-6-21  The conductivity of chalcocite, the richest copper sulphide Don Emerson [email protected] Introduction Exploration for copper has long been a focus for humankind. Developments in modern technologies have generated even more demand for this most useful metal. The cuprous sulphide, chalcocite (Cu 2S) with a 79.8% Cu content is the

2018-8-13  This variegated copper ore ran a remarkable 70% copper as chalcocite and bornite had crystallized in the sandstone, where they formed thick veins and crystal-lined pockets. To give you some idea of how rich this Bristol ore was, today’s copper mines run about 3% copper! The Bristol deposit also yielded silver in reasonable quantities.

Origins of Chalcocite Defined by Copper Isotope Values

The copper isotope values of sedimentary copper/red bed and supergene enrichment chalcocite are caused by redox reactions associated with the dissolution and transport of copper, whereas the tighter range of copper isotope values for hypogene minerals is associated with processes active with equilibrium conditions. 1. The Importance of Chalcocite.
