Phosphate Flotation

The phosphate-bearing formations in the West constitute relatively thick beds of phosphatic sandstones and shales that can be mined on a large scale employing open pit methods. The mineralogical characteristics vary considerably and require various treatment conditions for specific areas. For¬†Phosphate,¬†flotation is, in general, very important to upgrading the phosphate rock and is employed in … Read more

Phosphate Beneficiation Process

Large scale mining and processing of phosphate is essential for operating at a profit. In the Florida area, Phosphate Beneficiation by flotation unlocked the door to vast tonnages of ore which in the past could not be recovered by conventional washing methods which saved only the coarser pebble phosphate. Many of the areas now being … Read more

Nonmetallic Minerals Process Method

The following paper deals with the problems that have arisen in the application of the flotation process to the beneficiation of non-metallic ores by flotation. The most important of these ores are listed and the commercial specifications of the desired products are given. The problems caused by the complexity of many of the raw ore … Read more
