  • What is the role of arsenic in the mining industry MiningFacts.org

    Arsenic is a naturally occurring element commonly found as an impurity in metal ores, and is produced commercially for use in pesticides, wood preservatives, and metal alloys. Arsenic can be toxic in large doses, and the mining industry monitors and prevents its release into the environment.

    Jan 11, 2016 Copper deposits containing native metal together with oxide and sulphide ore are still mined today, and whereas it was most useful to ancient man it can be problematic in modern process plants in that at coarse sizes it is difficult to crush as it is malleable. In grinding processes it can form into thin flat pieces
