Copper Production in Chile | Made in Germany
Without copper, the economy and modern high-tech industries would come to a stand-still. Copper is used in computers, cell phones, automobiles, and nearly all electrical devices. About one-third of global copper reserves are found in Chile, making the country the world's largest exporter. Copper is a substantial contributor to Chile's economy, and the demand for the metal is on the rise.The copper mine de los Pelambres, some 250 kilometers north of Santiago, is the fifth largest in the world. The mine produces some 300,000 tons of copper each year -- using a state of the art and highly-efficient ore-grinding system from Siemens.

Chile's Forgotten Mining Towns
United Nations - United Nations - It’s an almost forgotten story in Chile – the miners who toiled under the desert sun and helped fuel the rise of today’s modern nation. For more than a hundred years, the mines produced saltpeter - a key ingredient for both gunpowder and fertilizer. But these heritage sites – now ghost towns - could be lost forever. 21st Century, Episode #96 Script (Pdf): http://www.un.org/webcast/pdfs/21stc96chileforgotten.pdf

The Giant Holes:  Escondida copper mine, Chile #Vendora
Escondida is a copper mine in the Atacama Desert in Antofagasta Region, Chile. The Escondida deposit is one of a cluster of porphyry coppers in an elongated area about 18 km north-south and 3 km east-west and is associated with the 600 km long West Fissure (Falla Oeste) system, which is in turn associated with most of the major Chilean porphyry deposits. A barren, leached cap, in places up to 300 metres thick, overlies a thick zone of high grade secondary supergene mineralisation of the main orebody, largely chalcocite and covellite, which in turn overlies the unaltered primary mineralisation of chalcopyrite, bornite and pyrite

Hot Chili working to double mine life of flagship Chilean Productora copper project
Hot Chili Ltd (ASX:HCH) managing director Christian Easterday speaks to Proactive Investors about the copper developer's growing portfolio of coastal Chilean assets, and planning for a dual listing. In addition to the advanced, large-scale flagship Productora project, Hot Chili has acquired the El Fuego Project, comprising a trio of historical mines known as San Antonio, Valentina and Lulu. They are actively being explored to enhance the grades and margins from Productora's development. The company is looking to add further assets in the area ahead of a DFS. "The phase that we're moving through at the moment is a phase of consolidating this entire region and really putting our arms around multiple ore sources to feed into a central plant to produce a copper operation that will be producing some 100,000 tonnes of copper per annum. And just for context, that would make Hot Chili and the Productora development indisputably the largest copper developer on the ASX," says Easterday.
Copper mines in Zambia - Straight through Africa
Trade is better than aid for Africa. They say. In a journey through copper thieves and mine barons in the north of Zambia, Bram Vermeulen investigates the truth behind that slogan. From a distance they look like ants, the hundreds of men digging holes in the rubble slopes of an old copper mine in Zambia. They are looking for copper ore in the walls of the enormous pit, without wearing helmets and without reinforcing the walls of their caves. Life-threatening, of course. But they find enough to live on. Is it legal, Bram asks. They laugh about it. No of course not. But the Chinese buyer does not really ask where they get their ore from. You just have to leave when the guards of the mine come. How different is it in a huge copper mine in full operation. Huge machines drive off and on. Sirens sound regularly, followed by explosions. Here, 300,000 tons of stone are moved every day, and the copper ore from it yields a profit of hundreds of millions of dollars a year. But it is a foreign company that raises that money. And if the productivity gets too low after about twenty years, the investors will move on. From the air it is easy to see how far-reaching it all is. The mine takes big chores out of the country and turns huge plains into a kind of lunar landscape. But other changes are also visible. Houses, schools, a golf course. Prosperity, therefore, emphasizes a mine boss. Seven years ago this was still a dull provincial town, and now look! A little further on the big changes are about to begin. There is a giant copper mine here, and for that an area of ​​no less than four hundred square kilometers is expropriated. The new owners promise economic prosperity. Did not a city like Johannesburg also start out as a simple mine? Naturally, people living in the area can not stay. They have worked the land for generations, but they can not show ownership documents. They have not been asked anything. They do get compensation for their houses, chickens and fruit trees, but not for the ground. "Everything under the ground is state property," says a representative of the mining company, "and that is what the state can rent out to us." Residents who do not want to leave are squatters who violate the law from that moment on. Even though they were born and lived there all their lives. Those former residents are moved to neat new houses outside the area. With toilet, and bigger than the previous house, but without land to grow food. Some of them seem satisfied with that. Most do not. 'In Africa, land has sentimental value. You are no one without land, 'says one of them. "So you're destroying these people. They will not pass on anything to the next generation. " Episode 6. Copper fever  For Africa, trade is better than aid, or so they say. On a journey to copper thieves and mine bosses, Bram Vermeulen investigates the truth behind the slogan.

Copper mining at its most efficient
At Sweden largest copper mine, Boliden Aitik, it takes 1000 kgs of earth to obtain three kgs of copper. The mine, located near Gällivare inside the Arctic Circle, is only profitable because its processes are highly automated. Mined ore is transported by a conveyor belt seven kilometers long to a processing plant where giant mills grind it into sand from which the copper can be extracted. The entire site process -- including the concentrator plant, conveyor systems and pumping stations -- is controlled by ABB's Extended Automation System 800xA. ABB's scope of supply also included a gas-insulated substation, a harmonics and power factor correction filter system, low-voltage switchgear as well as maintenance and service.

Copper Mining and Smelting 1944 Chile
This clip shows the Chuquicamata mine, one of the biggest open pit copper mines in the world, located in the north of Chile. The mine was owned and operated by the Anaconda Copper Mining Company. These mines were mainly self-contained and self-sustaining settlements. They were complete with their own cities to house the workers, their own water and electrical plants, schools, stores, railways, and even in certain cases their own police forces. Production for many years came from the oxidized capping of the orebody which merely required leaching and then electrowinning of the copper, but by 1951 the oxidised reserves were largely exhausted and the company built a mill, flotation plant and smelter to treat the huge reserves of underlying supergene copper sulfides. The electrowinning processes uses electroplating on a large scale for the economical and straightforward purification of non-ferrous metals. A current is passed from an inert anode through a liquid leach solution containing the metal so that the metal is extracted as it is deposited in an electroplating process onto the cathode. This is clipped from the from "United News" Newsreels, compiled 1942 -- 1945 and available on the Internet Archives.

El Indio in Chile was one of the most productive mines in the world, producing gold, silver and copper until its closure in 2002. Barrick Gold's groundbreaking investment in the closure of the mine in Chile was considered a landmark in the history of mining in that country and remains an example of reclamation best practice. Barrick voluntarily developed a $55 million mine closure plan with the help of a technical committee consisting of environmental authorities, health officials and community representatives. El Indio's mill and roaster buildings were successfully removed; 21,000 tonnes of material were shipped for recycling; water courses were restored; and affected soil and areas were cleaned, covered and graded.

1973 Chilean Coup D'état
1973 Chilean coup d'état Democratically elected in 1970, Chilean President Salvador Allende was pushing forward his “Chilean way to socialism” Land reforms and even free milk for children were being introduced The new Government also attempted to nationalise Chile’s lucrative copper mines which were mostly owned by US firms. The US firms were compensated much more than their book value. But this wasn’t good enough for the US In 2014, a series of declassified US documents revealed how Richard Nixon’s admin was running a campaign to destabilise Allende’s Government One section showed how the US copper companies in Chile had been complaining of increasing tax pressure and their worries about nationalisation. To Chileans, the US firm Anaconda symbolised American dependency. It was considered by most to be a foreign state within a state With a covert action budget assigned, the CIA’s operation was described as a “program to hamstring Allende and play for the breaks” Eventually a military coup in 1973 backed by America paved the way for Augusto Pinochet to take full control within a year. Pinochet launched a wave of brutal purges against remaining opponents In order to burnish the new Junta’s image at home and abroad, the CIA co-produced a “White book of the change of Government in Chile” The book effectively whitewashed the general by blackening the President he overthrew in 1973, Salvador Allende This coup was merely another American counter-revolutionary strategy which has been demonstrated in other parts of the world.

Although nearly 100 years of intensive exploitation, remains the largest resource of copper in the world, and this open crater is one of the world's largest size, reaching 4.3 km long, 3 km wide and over 850 m inside. is by excavated volume the biggest open pit copper mine in the world, located in the north of Chile, just outside of Calama at 9,350 feet (2,850m) above sea level, 215 km northeast of Antofagasta and 1,240 km north of the capital, Santiago. The Giant Holes: Chuquicamata Copper Mine, Chile Flotation and smelting facilities were installed in 1952; and expansion of the refining facilities in 1968 made 500,000-ton annual copper production possible in the late 1970s. The Giant Holes: Chuquicamata Copper Mine, Chile The mine is owned and operated by Codelco, a Chilean state enterprise, since the Chilean nationalization of copper in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Its depth of 850 metres (2,790 ft) makes it the second deepest open-pit mine in the world (after Bingham Canyon Mine in Utah, USA).

CEO Clips: Wojtek Wodzicki | NGEx Resources | Undeveloped Copper-Gold Mine in Chile
Wojtek Wodzicki, President and CEO of NGEx Resources speaks on their copper-gold project in South America. Wojtek Wodzicki, President and CEO of NGEx Resources, currently has two projects on the go in South America. The Los Helados project is their largest mine and is located in Chile. According to Wodzicki, the project is also one of the biggest undeveloped copper, silver and gold projects in South America. "We recently acquired the surface rights over Los Helados. We're working on all of the environmental baseline work and really where our focus is right now is on setting those projects up for an eventual transaction where the larger company will see the projects through to development," Wodzicki said. Crossing the border into Argentina, the company has the Josemaria project, a second site for copper, gold and silver. The site is locacted in the San Juan Province, one of the most mine friendly provinces in Argentina. With positive changes to national policy in Argentina, the country is seen as a great place to mine going forward. "I think it's that combination of the resource base that we've created, the exploration upside that we still see around these projects, and the proximity to infrastructure that makes these projects unique," Wodzicki said. "As the copper price starts to recover now, I think projects; they are going to be at the forefront of the next generation of projects to be developed."

King Solomon's Copper Mines - Digital Archaeology Project
High-Precision Carbon Dating and Historical Biblical Archaeology in Southern Jordan Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences 2008 Vol. 105 No. 43 San Diego, Oct. 27, 2008 -- Did the Bibles King David and his son Solomon control the copper industry in present-day southern Jordan ? Though that remains an open question, the possibility is raised once again by research reported in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Led by Thomas Levy of UC San Diego and Mohammad Najjar of Jordan's Friends of Archaeology, an international team of archaeologists has excavated an ancient copper-production center at Khirbat en-Nahas down to virgin soil, through more than 20 feet of industrial smelting debris, or slag. The 2006 dig has brought up new artifacts and with them a new suite of radiocarbon dates placing the bulk of industrial-scale production at Khirbat en-Nahas in the 10th century BCE - in line with biblical narrative on the legendary rule of David and Solomon. The new data pushes back the archaeological chronology some three centuries earlier than the current scholarly consensus.
