Practical Smallest Gold particle size that will not stay in suspension in water (2 replies)

Hi, can someone tell me from experience, what the smallest gold particle size is that will fall through water due to gravity of 1g? I.e. will not stay suspended.

If possible, can you give a range for clear and silty water?

Thanks

If the water is still (not moving) all particles will settle, eventually.  The rat of settling may be very slow, but it will settle.  Okay accept for some nano sized particles, but even they will eventually settle.  May take years.

If you look at the first two articles here:

An Introduction to Gravity Concentration
An Introduction to Flowing Film Concentration

and SDM Pulp Calculations from here

Thanks SmartDog for the response and links. Much appreciated.

There is a lot of interesting topics on your website that will keep me busy for a while.
