Malachite

Malachite is a bright green, dark green, and black-green common secondary copper carbonate hydroxide (Cu 2 (CO 3)(OH) 2) mineral (Fig. 1.41) contains 57.48% of Cu in its purest form.Malachite is formed by surface weathering process of copper ore and generally not used for copper extraction mow due to insignificant resources and inadequate metallurgical recovery.

Innovations: Introduction to Copper: Mining & Extraction

2021-8-12 · Underground mining is, however, relatively expensive and is generally limited to rich ores. El Teniente, in Chile, is the world''s largest underground copper mine. Open pit mining is employed when the orebodies are extensive, low in grade, and relatively near the surface, where they can be quarried after removal of overburden.

Malachite Value, Price, and Jewelry Information

Its recovery generally occurs, at least on a large scale, as a sidelight of copper mining. Technically, malachite is a "secondary mineral," which means it''s created by a chemical reaction between minerals that have already formed, rather than by a simple one-step process.
