Flotation of fine sulphides

Central Chemical Consulting conducted a research based project for numerous base and precious metal companies investigating the flotation of fine sulphides. This project involved a study of the surface chemistry of fine sulphides in saline and hypersaline process water. The aim of this work was to gain a better understanding of the behaviour of fine sulphides to help increase their recovery. The solution conditions that would lead to a greater fine particle agglomeration and potentially a higher recovery were identified.
