Abstract
The evolutionary change that is taking place in processing copper ores is reviewed. By utilizing newer methods that have been developed in the United States and by borrowing some of the best of worldwide engineering advancements, it is shown how copper producers are meeting the challenge of maintaining high levels of production from ores that have been declining in grade. In doing so, the producers also have adapted their operations to the need for better protection of their workers and of the general public from adverse effects upon the environment. To maintain the high rate of progress now being made in ore processing technology, research in hydrometallurgy and ore processing and plant engineering is being vigorously pursued.
