Learning how to compare flotation test results made easy: One set of test from Lab A is displayed by the red dots and compare to the blue and/or green data set from Lab B.
Lab B is red inferior.
Here are the comparative Grade VS Recovery Curves.
Metallurgical Efficiency: One of the most important and basic concepts in mineral processing is metallurgical efficiency. Two terms are commonly used to describe the efficiency of metallurgical processes: recovery and grade. Mineral processing engineers are responsible for optimizing processes to yield the highest possible recovery with acceptable purity (grade) for the buyers or engineers who will treat this concentrate further to extract the metal values. To achieve this goal, economic assessments of all possible technological alternatives must be considered.
