Originally presented at Copper 2019. In the face of declining copper head grades and a tightening regulatory environment around the use of wet tailings dams, the processing of copper ores at coarser particle sizes has become a focal point for the industry.
Flotation, hydraulic separators, slurry distributors, mini pilot plant equipment and more
Originally appeared in Mining Magazine, August 2019. As ore grades decline, mining companies are looking for ways to improve the processing efficiency of these ores and reduce treatment costs. Coarse flotation is one solution, finds Ailbhe Goodbody
Test work shows there are numerous benefits not just in reducing capital and operating costs, but also for improving sustainability and environmental efforts.
Eriez Flotation Division has developed several technologies that can improve the separation of fertilizer minerals through flotation.

Benchmarking performance of StackCell with conventional cells for bulk copper flotation roughing
Originally appeared in Engineering & Mining Journal. By classifying flotation feed at a point where coarse recovery deteriorates, the existing flotation circuit can be optimized to improve performance.
