respond well to flotation. Advantages of the flotation process are that gold values are generally liberated at a fairly coarse particle size (28 mesh) which means that ore grinding costs are minimized. The reagents used for flotation are generally not toxic, which means that tailings disposal costs are low.

Introduction to Mineral Processing - Chevron Phillips Chemical

Introduction to Mineral Processing. Froth Flotation Froth flotation is considered to be the most widely used method for ore beneficiation. In ore beneficiation, flotation is a process in which valuable minerals are separated from worthless material or other valuable minerals by inducing them to gather in and on the surface of a froth layer ...

Flash flotation – an introduction - AusIMM Bulletin

Typical applications of flash flotation can be found in gold, silver, platinum and other PGMs, lead, copper, nickel, and combinations thereof. It is worth noting that typically flash flotation is not extensively evaluated during a feasibility study and hence it is unknown if it would be …

Platinum - Palladium Flotation

Tailings obtained with the modified procedure were higher in platinum and palladium content (0.02 oz/ ton Pt and 0.11 oz/ton Pd) than those obtained from flotation in high acid pulps. Substituting sulfurous acid for sulfuric acid to decrease the pH to 4 and floating with a suite employing MBT was not successful.

The Great Dyke, Zimbabwe, contains over 800 million ounces of platinum and approximately 20 million ounces of rhodium. However, about 10% of the ore is oxidized and cannot be processed with current recovery methods. A conventional flotation-smelting process has been proposed to recover the platinum group metal (PGM) values from the sulfide ores.
