The primary production of sulfide concentrates includes smelting to copper matte or blister copper conversion of matte to blister copper and refining to copper. Smelting converting and fire-refining can use a limited amount of secondary materials. Molten copper can effectively dissolve many metals from valuable noble metals to harmful impurities such as bismuth.
