Floc flotation of galena and sphalerite fines

Floc flotation of galena and sphalerite fines. The beneficiation results have demonstrated that floc flotation not only reduces the losses of the valuable metals in tailing, but also greatly increases the separation efficiency at cleaner flotation steps, producing concentrates with much higher grade and recovery in comparison to

Floc flotation of galena and sphalerite fines

2001-1-1  The flotation of galena and sphalerite fines in the form of flocs, which is termed floc flotation, has been studied in the present work. First, the floc flotation produced a tailing with lower grades and recovery of the valuable metals, in comparison to the conventional flotation, reducing the metal losses in tailing. The savings of the
