How is the copper extracted from the ground?
The Florence Copper project is not a traditional copper mine where minerals are extracted by digging out large volumes of rock. Instead, it is a low profile and low intensity operation where minerals are recovered by introducing a low-pH water-based solution (comprising more than 99.5% water and less than 0.5% sulphuric acid) into a soluble copper mineral deposit deep underground, and then recovering that solution via a series of extraction wells.
