Copper processing is a complicated process that begins with mining of the ore (less than 1% copper) and ends with sheets of 99.99% pure copper called cathodes, which will ultimately be made into products for everyday use.The most common types of ore, copper oxide and copper sulfide, undergo two different processes, hydrometallurgy and pyrometallurgy, respectively, due to the different
The largest copper mine in North America (and the world's largest man made excavation) is the Bingham Canyon Mine near Salt Lake City, Utah. A $1.5 billion modernization program completed in 1998 turned Bingham Canyon into North America's lowest cost copper producer , a model of operational efficiency and environmental compliance.

Sep 26, 2013(Financial Press Sept 26, 2013) Newly producing mines tend to have a positive ripple effect among their neighbors. Once an area is officially productive, development on adjacent lands tend to pick up the pace significantly. Producers are breeding grounds for investment activity among their surroundings. One of British Columbia's most recent examples of this is that of Copper Mountain [TSX
