M.G. Aylmore, in Gold Ore Processing Second Edition, 2016 5.1.1 Platsol Process. The Platsol process was originally developed in collaboration with the University of British Columbia, Kane Consultants Ltd., and Lakefield Research in Canada for the treatment of flotation sulfide concentrate for Polymet Mining Company in Minnesota and was tested on similar types of concentrate materials.
From the zeta-potential measurement shown in Figure 3a, the mixture of sulfide ore and serpentine could form hetero-coagulation. To display the particles interaction, the particle size distribution results in Figure 7 showed the size of serpentine-sulfide ore 11 at the 40 wt and 20 wt densities at a pH of 9.5. The different in size ...
The use of ozone during certain stages of metal separation by flotation degrades certain collectors that are absorbed on the particle surface, as well as the collectors and frothers in the liquid slurry. As a result, the mineral particle has a fresh surface and new chemical reagents can be added in the subsequent flotation steps. Also since ozone oxidizes the iron sulfide particles faster ...
The efficiency of the froth flotation process has long been known to be strongly dependent on particle size. For sulfide minerals, good recoveries are typically achieved in industrial flotation circuits for particles in the 30 to 150 m size range. Particles outside this critical size are typically lost in industrial
Mar 19, 2018 As noted above, the flotation of sulfide minerals often is strongly tied to the oxidation potential of the mineral in the flotation slurry. The behavior in both borate and sulfate solution was determined. The floatability of silver from the Alaskan ore was unaffected by potentiostatic control of potential as demonstrated in figure 10.

It is easy to produce sludge and contains a lot of soluble salts. Various reasons make the flotation treatment of lead-zinc oxide ore difficult. This article will introduce you to 5 flotation methods and teach you how to choose lead-zinc ...
Jan 05, 2018 Conventional froth flotation for many ore systems is very effective for particles between 300 and 20 m in size, but the flotation efficiency commonly drops off as the particle size decreases below 20 m. Flotation kinetics has been used by Sutherland 1955 and subsequent researchers to explain this inefficiency.

The gangue minerals are mainly quartz, carbonate and silicate. 2 Copper-sulfur ore Called copper-bearing pyrite. In addition to copper minerals, iron sulfide can be recovered, and the main mineral of sulfur is pyrite.
Jun 29, 2021 It has a wide particle size range. The biggest particle size can reach 0.8 to 1 mm, while the smallest particle size is below 5 mm It has quantities of ore particles with a large surface area. Each liter of the ore pulp can have tens of millions or even nearly 100 million fine particles, thus the surface area of the solid phase is large.

The average particle size of pulp was finally measured with the Mastersizer 2000 laser particle size instrument. 3 Results and discussion 3.1 Effect of FG on talc flotation The effect of pH on the flotation behavior of talc with different particle sizes is shown in Fig. 3.
pulp and the flotation response was investigated through a series of rheological and batch flotation tests. The nickel-sulfide ore from the Mt. Keith plant Western Australia was used for the tests. It is a low-grade nickel sulfide ore which is characterized by complex mineralogical composition with a large content of serpentine minerals.

Copper ore crushing process Beneficiation methods of copper sulfide ore Copper sulfide can be divided into single copper ore, copper sulfur ore, copper-molybdenum deposit, copper nickel, carrollite and so on.
The flotation process can be used when the raw ore has a high mud content, is accompanied by impurity minerals, or the useful minerals are inlaid with a fine particle size. Fluorite often coexists with minerals such as quartz, barite, calcite, and sulfide ores. According to different ore properties, the specific flotation process is also different.
