What is the role of silica in metallurgy of copper?, Chemistry

during the process of extraction of pure copper from copper pyrite,SiO2 acts as acidic flux which combines with iron oxide(FeO) to form iron silicate(FeSiO3). CuFeS2 + heat ---> Cu2s + FeS + SO2 FeS + O2 ----> Feo FeO + SiO2 ----> FeSiO3
