M.N.S. USAINI,  M. ALI
This research work focused on the Determination of Liberation Size of Akiri Copper Ore in Nasarawa state. The techniques involved in the study were sample collection and preparation, sieve analysis and chemical analysis of the head sample. The mesh of grind was found to be 210 μm and the liberation size was established to be 125 μm sieve size having the highest percentage of copper of 11.9 and 14.9% copper oxide. The study recommended further investigation on the separation of the copper ore using 125 μm sieve size.
