Waste rock is used by industry to refer to poor or nonmineralized rock that is within or surrounding the ore body at surface mines. Waste rock and ore are relative terms in the context of copper porphyry ore bodies since few distinct boundaries exist.

Weathering kinetics of waste rock from the Aitik

1999-7-1 · Geochemical processes in mining waste rock, including sulphide weathering, heavy metal release (Cu and Zn), and acidity consumption by carbonate and silicate mineral weathering have been investigated. We operated six large columns, each containing about 1.6 tons of waste rock, with unsaturated water flow for nearly 3 1/2 years.

Copper Mining and Extraction Sulfide Ores

Metals are often found as compounds in ores. An ore is a rock or mineral that has enough metal in it to make it worth extracting. Mining copper About 200 years ago the UK was an important world source of copper and tin and there were mines in Cornwall and Devon.

When mining starts, all the waste rock is covered with cemented tailings. Finally, Sandfire’s reclamation plans ensure that no waste rock piles will be left on surface when mining is complete. This is a much different outcome than how most historic mines were left, some of which developed metal leaching from acid mine and rock drainage.
