Magnetic Separation of Sulphide Minerals - 911

2016-12-4  At the mill of the Cotopaxi Exploration Co., Macuchi, Ecuador, the principal minerals are chalcopyrite, pyrite, barite, and quartz. The ore contains considerable gold, which occurs largely, if not wholly, as the native metal, the characteristic occur- rence being at the chalcopyrite-pyrite grain boundary. Minor constituents are bornite, sphalerite, and chalcocite. The 200 to 270-mesh fraction of

2006-2-1  Fig. 1 shows the recovery vs. time of the copper, nickel and iron sulphide minerals obtained for the condition of SS milling media with no copper sulphate addition and illustrates the different performance of the minerals. It can be seen that chalcopyrite (copper) was the fastest floating mineral and achieved the highest final recovery (85.6%). The final recovery of pentlandite (nickel) was 72.4%.

Magnetic Separation of Sulphide Minerals

2018-5-1  Laboratory investigations on the possibility for magnetic separation of sulphide minerals are reported. A survey of several sulphide ores and flotation concentrates shows that magnetic separation in most cases is not a suitable primary method of beneficiation. However encouraging results have been obtained in concentrate purification. Traditionally magnetic separation is associated with iron ...
