Can anyone tell me of an operating mine floating 4 concentrates - Cu, Pb, Zn and Pyrite?  I was thinking on the pyrite concentrate for environmental purpose - to mitigate risk of ARD.This search is a little more complicated to find than anticipated...

If copper is in oxidised form then it is easy to leach. 1st float lead copper --separate lead from copper. Then 2nd stage float Zinc. Pyrite can be depressed using cyanide in all concentrates.

Our mineralogy are very complex with: chalcopyrite, bornite, chalcocite tennantite, malachite, sphalerite I and II, pyrite, galena, chalcocite, covellite, gray copper, magnetite. It also have soluble salts of Cu, Fe, Pb, Zn.We have flotation bulk, co...

Thanks for your comments, I am going to review your suggestions in the blog, but the problem is the salts of Cu, Pb, Fe, Zn. and we need to change the chemistry of flotation in our operations.

Using applied statistics to improve plant performance, an increase in Silver Recovery was obtained/improved by optimization. I have done the same in several mines. Lean tools and six sigma work well in the mining environment.What keeps surprising m...

Decisions in the mining industry are not supported by data, in general. Even in companies that promote data driven decision. The support needs to come from the top.I can help optimize a reagent suite ...
