porphyry copper deposit

What is a Porphyry Copper Deposit?

2015-6-27  porphyry copper deposits were the first type of metallic mineral deposit to be exploited by large-scale, bulk tonnage, open pit mining methods. Economies of scale and advances in technology have made it possible to profitably mine these deposits despite their relatively low ore grades.

2020-1-1  Porphyry copper deposits (PCDs) represent shallow level intrusions (2–5 km) in the crust. Mineralization of Cu ores tend to occur at the tops of porphyry systems in cupolas. Possible regimes where Cu may be mobilized include hydrothermal circulation at mid-ocean ridge centers, dehydration or melting of the subducting slab, and late stage ...
