A metallurgical process by which some mineral particles are induced to become chemically bound to air bubble surfaces and float, and other particles to sink, so that the valuable minerals may be further concentrated and separated from gangue minerals
Material on which the dock floats. Standard materials include various encasements of styrofoam or polyurethane. Many areas do not allow permit 'virgin' styrofoam use. Other float material includes 'anything which floats and maintains freeboard'.
The process of mixing ground ore with water chemical reagents and air to separate mineral particles from waste rock. The mineral particles stick to the air bubbles and float to the surface. The froth is collected and dewatered to produce concentrate for smelting or further processing.
Is experienced in a flotation tank, which is a specially designed chamber containing sufficient salt-saturated water to enable one to float. In this state of suspension, floating effortlessly, allows the mind and body to release tension.
a milling process by which some mineral particles are induced to become attached to bubbles of froth and float, and others to sink, so that the valuable minerals are concentrated and separated from the gangue
A method of combining finely ground ore with water and chemical reagents to create a frothy mixture that separates metallic particles from other minerals; the metallic particles are then collected and dried and the resulting concentrate is sent to the smelter for fire-refining.
A process for concentrating minerals based on the selective adhesion of certain minerals to air bubbles in a mixture of water and ground up ore. When the right chemicals are added to a frothy water bath of ore that has been ground to the consistency of talcum powder, the minerals will float to the surface. The metal rich flotation concentrate is then skimmed off the surface.
a process by which some mineral particles are induced, by the introduction of specific reagents, to become attached to bubbles and float while other particles sink; the valuable minerals are concentrated and separated from the gaunge
When a company decides to list its shares on a stock market it has to go through an elaborate process before its shares become quoted. The final act of listing is known as a flotation. The company (More)
