Caption: Copper production. Copper is produced by reacting its ores with carbon or, in the case of copper sulphides, through crushing, concentration by flotation, smelting in a furnace and finally purification by electrolysis, the decomposition of a substance by applying an electric current. Copper is also found in a pure native state.
