Can anyone help me about the production cost of Pb Zn lead and zinc concentrate with flotation plant?

Unfortunately your question is similar to asking how much a truck costs, pickup truck or haul truck, if haul truck, what size 40t, 100t. 300t?

What size operation? Where is the plant? Is lead and zinc the primary product or are they secondary? Are you including capital costs or just operating costs?

And these do not get into the complicated parts; oxide or sulphide? How many stages are required? Are you producing one concentrate or two, or more?

Yes. You have to have certain specifics to get specific answers.

Not quite sure what your posting has to do with minerals processing innovation which is what this group is for -are there some specific technology aspects that you are interested in to reduce costs?
