The role of sodium metabisulphite in depressing pyrite in ...

Oct 01, 2019  It is observed that MBS is generally used in copper flotation using seawater. However, it is added in the mill in some plants, but during flotation in the other plants. The dosage of MBS added also varies significantly in these plants. A fundamental study may provide knowledge to guide the application of MBS in copper flotation using seawater.

Copper Flotation - Mineral Processing Metallurgy

May 16, 2016  A Copper Flotation Flowsheet. Because the copper in this type of ore usually assays only plus or minus 1% copper, the porphyry copper operations must be relatively large in order to be commercial. The flowsheet in this study illustrates a typical 3,000 ton per day operation. In general most operations of this type have two or more parallel ...

60 Centuries of Copper: The Flotation Process

The Flotation Process. Until quite recently copper ore had to be hand-picked if the extraction of the metal was to be economical. In fact, in the last century, ores of 4 percent grade were regarded as almost valueless. Today such ores (which would be regarded as relatively rich in copper) are scarce; the great majority of mines contain the ...
