grinding practice in the mills tends to leave the siegenite as binary locked particles in the various product streams fig. 1. Therefore, further grinding to liberate the siegenite particles is required, but is limited by the lower size limita tions of the froth flotation and by grinding energy considerations.
BENCH-SCALE FLOTATION TESTS ROUGHER FLOTATION Bench-scale tests were made to deter mine the amenability of serpentinized ore to flotation using conventional anionic collectors for sulfide minerals. During preliminary tests, no significant differ ence in rougher flotation results was ob tained between ores that were dry-ground
the grinding fineness increased while the recovery of lead was not affected by the grinding fineness, indicating that the lead and zinc minerals are liberated from each other at grinds of more than 75 75 m. Rougher flotation at a coarser grind followed by regrinding to liberate the lead and zinc from each other has been suggested by Seke and
rougher feed to rougher tails change indicates an increased proportion of middlings and locked losses. Inspection of the cleaner and recleaner feeds and tails shows the same trend. It is clear from the above that, to improve the recovery of the valuable mineral species, the degree of liberation required and improved flotation of liberated fines ...

inadequate grinding and short flotation residence times 1. Consequently, the new mill was designed to achieve a primary grind k 80 of 75 microns finer than the k 80 of 150 microns achieved using the old milling circuit. Rougher scavenger flotation residence time was increased from 19 minutes in the old mill, to 55 minutes. Initial testing,
The rougher floatation concentrates of the Cu-Pb and Zn circuits were analysed to evaluate the floatation behaviour of chalcopyrite, galena and sphalerite. The results indicate better liberation of minerals in coarse size fractions for the pulp ground by autogenous mill while conventional grinding shows higher degree of liberation in the fine ...

The FC content of the final concentrate had a significant upgrade, while the ...
Unloading the grinding circuit and increasing the primary cyclone cut point results in a substantial increase to mill capacity. In fact, recent ndings show mill capacity can be increased by more than 25 percent.

During the first six weeks of the installation phase, one of the two flotation lines was fed by the conventional grinding circuit and the other by the autogenous grinding circuit. Data from parallel surveys and historical data are used to analyse the rougherscavenger flotation performance before and after the change.
Jan 01, 2016 Broadly, the two options implemented were the addition of a tertiary grinding stage consisting of Metso Vertimill prior to rougher flotation in order to address the grinding required at increasing throughput by increasing the power, and the addition of three Woodgrove Staged Flotation Reactors SFR added to the cleaner circuit after ...

Young et al, 2000. These are required for ultra-fine grinding to achieve liberation of fine-grained minerals, which improves separation of th e minerals in the flotation circuits. The process parameters and IsaMill designs have been continuously improved to increase the IsaMill grinding performance and the component life between maintenance ...
the higher pulp densities desired in the grinding mill and rougher flotation cells. An illustrative examples are given here. Example 1 In a grinding circuit with 200 circulating load the pulp density of classifier underflow is 75 solids by weight the pulp density desired in the mill is 90 solids by weight and in the rougher cells 35 solids by

Flotation experiments were conducted in a Denver type agitated flotation cell at the rougher stage. The experimental results showed that increasing the pH from 8 to 10 at low agitation rate 1000 rpm enhanced the recovery from 80.36 to 85.22, while at high agitation rate 1200 rpm, a slight declination occurred in the recovery.
Apr 01, 2014 In the rougher flotation prior to regrinding, high chalcopyrite and chalcocite recovery were obtained in conjunction with high pyrite flotation recovery due to the activation of pyrite by copper ions during primary grinding. The rougher flotation concentrate was reground in a rod mill before cleaner flotation.
