What is Copper Concentrate?
Although copper occurs naturally in a pure state, it’s primarily mined from the minerals chalcopyrite, bornite, and malachite. Copper ore is extracted form the earth, then converted into copper concentrate, which is then roasted, smelted and converted into refined copper.
The resultant metal is widely used for its high electrical and heat conductivity; its malleability; its ability to form alloys with other metals; and its resistance to corrosion. This last attribute is what makes copper so attractive for flashing on durable and long-lasting slate and tile roofs. Copper wire and cable, however, account for half of the world’s copper production.
Chile is the world’s leading copper producer, producing about 37% of the world’s total. Every continent produces copper, yielding a worldwide total production of about 9 million short tons of copper each year. The four largest copper producing nations in order are Chile (37%), U.S. (8%), Indonesia (8%) and Peru (7%).

Handling of cargo
Cargoes which may liquefy (Group C)
Sphere-shaped pebbles 75% copper with lead, tin, zinc, traces of others. Moisture content 1.5% approximately. Light grey colour when dry, dark green when wet. Odour less.
Commodities that appear to be in a dry condition when loaded but may contain moisture in excess of their transportable moisture limit (tml) that might , due to the effects of compaction and vibration, cause the cargo to liquefy during the voyage.
This cargo may be self heating. Moisture content is critical. May liquefy. Relevant physical properties including moisture content must be checked prior to loading. Case have occurred where very considerable damage was caused to cereal and to coffee cargoes stowed in the same compartment as a parcel of copper concentrates, which, it was alleged, generate great heat causing discolouration, sweat and fume (taint) damage.
