In: Proceedings of National Seminar on Mineral Processing and IX Annual Technical Convention of Indian Institute of Mineral Engineers, 11th & 12th March 1985, National Metallurgical Laboratory(CSIR) Jamshedpur.



Ingaldhal copper mines are situated in the Bangalore -- Bombay National Highway about 10 Kms from Chitradurga town (Karnataka State). The main mineral is chalcopyrite ( Cu FeS2 ) occuring as a vein deposit in chlorite schist, the thicknes of the veins varying from 60 cms to 18 cms. The estimated reserves of developed and blocked out ore is 0.2 million tonnes of grade 1.23% Cu. Probable reserves are one million tonnes at 1.0% copper.The ore from the under ground mines is hoisted up and stored in the surface ore bins. It is transported by trucks to the hopper of the crushing unit.
