1996-11-20  mans found nearly 100 lens-shaped ore bodies in the Rio Tinto copper district. Modern geologists have found only a few additional deposits, and almost all of Rio Tinto’s modern production has been from ore first discovered by the Remans.3 At Rio Tinto, the Remans mined the upper, ox-idized, part of the ore and collected the copper-

2015-9-10  12.3 Primary Copper Smelting 12.3.1 General1 Copper ore is produced in 13 states. In 1989, Arizona produced 60 percent of the total U. S. ore. Fourteen domestic mines accounted for more than 95 percent of the 1.45 megagrams (Mg) (1.6 millon tons) of ore produced in 1991. Copper is produced in the U. S. primarily by pyrometallurgical smelting ...
