Recover Ultrafine Chalcopyrite by Flotation

Preparation of the chalcopyrite ore was designed to produce a flotation feed with the same characteristics as those of the actual flotation feed at the Cyprus Bagdad mill. The ore sample was crushed with laboratory jaw and roll crushers to below 2,000-µm size. Each kilogram of the ore sample was ground with saturated lime water in a rod mill at 70 pct solids for 10 min. The slurry was

Rcovery of gold in pyritic ores Mine Engineer.Com

That appears to leave froth flotation as still the best method of recovering the gold from pyritic ores. Sulfide ores, such as chalcopyrite, sphaelerite, galena, and pyrrhotite, and mixtures of these ores have historically been found with micron size gold particles included in them. This generally involves frother, several collectors (promoters

The role of sodium sulfide in the flotation of pyrite

In copper-gold flotation plants, pyrite which is depressed in copper flotation is often floated subsequently with the addition of sodium sulfide (Na 2 S) to recover the associated gold. For the first time, this study investigated the role of Na 2 S responsible for the flotation of pyrite depressed in chalcopyrite flotation through flotation tests and Cyro-XPS (X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy

Chalcopyrite Wikipedia

Chalcopyrite (/ ˌ k æ l k ə ˈ p aɪ r aɪ t,-k oʊ-/ KAL-ko-PY-ryt) is a copper iron sulfide mineral that crystallizes in the tetragonal system. It has the stone formula CuFeS 2.It has a brassy to golden yellow color and a hardness of 3.5 to 4 on the Mohs scale.Its streak is diagnostic as green tinged black. On exposure to air, chalcopyrite tarnishes to a variety of oxides, hydroxides

Pyrite Tailings Recovery by Flotation

Pyrite has long been used as a source of sulphur, and its recovery as a by-product from the flotation of certain base metal ores is a well established practice. Large tonnages of mill tailings which have accumulated as a result of various milling operations frequently contain significant amounts of pyrite. In many instances these tailings can be treated to yield pyrite concentrates that are a

Flotation of Gold and Gold-Bearing Ores ScienceDirect

The flotation recovery of free gold (throughout the text free gold is synonymous with liberated gold) is largely affected by physical constraints such as the shape and size of the gold particles and the stability of the froth. It is a generally accepted fact that liberated gold finer than about 150 μm floats readily with most collectors and in particular xanthates and dithiophosphates. When

Gold Recovery 101 Sepro Systems

Gold is often associated with many sulfide minerals including arsenopyrite, pyrite, chalcopyrite and galena. Often a portion of the sulfide-associated gold can be considered free milling while the remainder is occluded or very finely disseminated within the sulfide matrix. While the free-milling portion can be recovered by traditional gravity or cyanidation processes discussed above, the

Chalcopyrite an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Gold is often associated with chalcopyrite in ore deposits, and efforts are therefore made at the mine to maximize the recovery of both gold and copper, either using a combination of gravity and flotation techniques or flotation alone. Using available techniques, some of the gold can be recovered directly as a gold concentrate, with, for example, gravity techniques in the grinding circuit, but
