Diamonds

grinding-flotation-concentration

World demand and production of diamonds both for gem and industrial purposes has increased nearly five-fold during the past 25 years. Improved mining and recovery methods together with the discovery and development of new fields has enabled mining operations to fill the growing demands. Producing areas in South Africa, South West Africa, The

Batch Cyanidation Leach of Flotation Concentrate

grinding-flotation-batch-cyanidation

The production of gold bullion from gravity or flotation concentrates is often an important economic consideration for an isolated gold mining operation. It is assumed in this case that the coarse free gold has been recovered by the Mineral Jig in the grinding circuit and that the jig concentrate has been amalgamated. This treatment produces

Placer Deposit Processing

The handling of large quantities of gold-bearing gravels is of utmost importance for most successful placer operations. In addition to providing efficient washing and recovery methods, the placer plant should be constructed as a compact unit that can be readily moved. This is an important consideration because the washing and recovery plant should

Uranium Solvent Extraction Process

Uranium Geology

The ore occurs as uraninite adhering to the outside of sand grains in the Wind River formation which rest unconformably upon Cretaceous shales. The ores are relatively low in clay content and generally regarded as exceptionally clean ores from the standpoint of objectionable impurities. The arkosic sands in which the ore occurs are very porous and

SMALL SCALE LEACHING OF COPPER ORES

grinding-flotation-small-scale-leaching-of-copper

The treatment of copper ores, both oxides and sulfides by means of flotation, hydrometallurgy or other processes has been well established for many years. Flotation has been applied generally to the treatment of sulfide ores, both in small and large scale operations.

Hydrometallurgical methods alone or in combination with flotation have mainly

URANIUM METALLURGY

In the metallurgical treatment of uranium ores large tonnages must be handled. Many ores are low grade so it becomes necessary to employ systems which can be operated on a continuous basis at low cost. A vast amount of research has gone into the development of suitable processes. One is solvent extraction, which has proven

Uranium Extraction Process

The plant was originally designed to treat uranium ores with low lime-high vanadium content from the Lukachukai Mountains. The process utilized is known as the “Acid Cure” and had been developed for the most part by the AEC to increase recovery of vanadium values.

Complex Base Metal Process Plant Circuit

The flowsheet in this study was designed to treat 500 tons per day of a complex base metal ore containing gold and silver values. The presence of free gold offers opportunity to recover these values in the grinding circuit so that the gold could be amalgamated, and marketed directly to the U.S. mint. The ore as mined is very wet and sticky and presents
