About us

Among the most important elements to have been discovered in the world of metallurgy, Copper is one. It is said to have been created in around 4000 BC. Honoring that very history, Copper Range is a company operating in Australia that extracts copper with the very best industry procedures. This involves capitalizing on procedures that are the least harmful to the environment.
This commitment to the environmental safety has earned us recognition several times in the past and continues to define us for our clients and the government. This philosophy continues to define us in all our endeavors and we hope to keep it that way.

Some Bus Maintenance Tips That Every Bus Driver Should Know About


Usage leads to wear and tear, especially in the case of things open to all public. Public transports tend to appear worn out and less appealing. You get all sorts of people hopping on the bus to get to work, home, school, a different town, city or anywhere anytime of the day. From old to young, so many individuals utilize buses as the most common mode of commute. A driver cannot control the steering wheel and keep an eye on what’s happening in the bus inside. He cannot control every passenger and by the end of the day because of heavy usage there is a lot that needs cleaning and repairing. Here are some bus maintenance tips that can help drivers in maintaining their buses in the face of heavy usage.

Proper cleansing

People get on and off of the bus all day long. From chewing gums thrown out on the floor and pressed under the seats, to mud deposits tracing a number of shoes that have gotten on and off the bus there is a lot that needs the drivers attention when the bus shuts down for the day. On the outside, the body and tires of the bus carry mud and dust from all the trips. You cannot call it a day without putting in the necessary effort to set the bus right. You need to clean or have the bus cleaned inside out otherwise carrying one days mess into the next will only make the deteriorated condition worse. Proper cleaning can keep the bus in a good shape even if it’s old. It even keeps rust away!

Checks

The engine is being used throughout the day, and even at night in some instances (depending upon the category of the bus). When a vehicle remains in use like this and given that it carries a number of lives in a day, it becomes essential for the driver to keep the mechanisms intact in order to avoid accidents and casualties. Firstly, before the beginning of every day the driver must perform a few checks to see that everything is working fine. The brakes, tires, water level, oil, battery, wipers and AC etc, need to be checked as a part of basic checks.

Timely maintenance

Timely maintenance is the ultimate key to keeping the bus healthy. The heavy duty that the bus performs puts this responsibility on the driver to keep the bus maintained as a safety measure against accidents and mishaps. Have maintenance trips with a diesel mechanic wetherill park scheduled at different intervals (as per your requirement, minimum being two to three). These tips will help in keeping bigger problems from developing and also reduces the risks of malfunctioning and accidents. If there are any small issues that are developing, these timely checkups can help in diagnosing and getting rid of them otherwise they can evolve into bigger issues that might require more work and money. Air and fuel filters, brake pads, wipers, must be replaced frequently. Battery and tires will need replacing after some time too.

Copper and geothermal energy a stone’s throw from Volterra: Mining Museum

To be miners for a day, to be guided by dwarf Spigolo in search of an underground kingdom in search of precious treasures until the discovery of an essential metal for the life of man, plants and animals: copper. What do you say?

The Mining Museum of Montecatini Val di Cecina tells how, from the Etruscan period until the early 1900s, brave men entered the ground to extract this precious mineral resource. Here you can visit nineteenth-century galleries, participate in many educational experiences of a day, a few hours or at night, by lantern light. Maybe you don’t know the Alta Val di Cecina? A visit to the Mining Museum is an extra opportunity to travel between Etruscan necropolises, Roman period remains, squares and medieval villages to end with a visit to the Documentation Centerof the museum and get to know all the richness of this land: copper, rock salt, alabaster, geothermal energy between thematic rooms and multimedia laboratories. In short, a trip that never ceases to surprise! What are you waiting for ??

The Mining Museum is part of the territorial museum system: the Etruscan Guarnacci Museum of Volterra, the Pinacoteca and Ecomuseum of the Alabaster of Volterra, Archaeological Areas and the Geothermal Museum of Larderello.

Extraction and production

Extraction and production
Copper is found in natural deposits present on all continents. This page summarizes the production processes that start from extraction in the mine to the final product having the highest commercial purity, used in a large number of applications essential for modern life.

Copper ores
Copper minerals are found in the earth’s crust in various forms and concentrations. In the outermost 10km of the earth’s crust, there are 33 g per ton of rock. In certain places, the concentration is much greater: these are the areas where the mines are located, where the extraction is economically convenient.

Copper deposits
In the case of copper, it is economically convenient to extract a mineral with a copper content of 0.2% (2 kg per ton of rock). It can be in the form of sulphides, oxides, cabonates, silicates or other compounds, or more rarely, in the native state. The most abundant minerals, which cover 80% of the deposits known worldwide, are chalcopyrite and bornite, which both contain copper and iron sulphides.

The extraction of copper
Here is a description of how copper is mined and converted into pure metal; processes that treat sulfur-containing minerals are considered.

Copper extraction

Copper minerals are obtained from mines both in the open air and in tunnels and the methods used are not particularly characterized compared to those now traditional also for other minerals 90% of the mineral is extracted from open pit mines (“open pit “).

Crushing and grinding

The mineral, which contains a significant amount of aggregates (gangue) is reduced, by means of powerful mills, to a powder of adequate granulometry in order to optimize the subsequent treatment.

Flotation

This operation allows the separation of the fractions containing the copper from the aggregates; the powder, emulsified with surfactant liquids, is introduced into large tanks from where the surface foamy layer which contains the richest copper particles is removed. In fact, thanks to the selective surface tension, the sulphides are covered with minute bubbles of surfactant, which prevent contact with the water, and are dragged upwards by the air that is bubbled in the tank. The copper concentration obtainable can vary from 30 to 50% depending on the content of the starting mineral.
