An investigation into the effects of UG2 Ore variability on froth flotation.
South Africa is the world’s largest producer of platinum group elements (PGEs). Mining takes place in the Bushveld Complex, and recent statistics, (Mudd, 2010), showed that the UG2 reef is the main source of production, ...
Neural network modelling and prediction of the flotation deinking behaviour of complex recycled paper mixes.
In the absence of any significant legislation, paper recycling in South Africa has grown to a respectable recovery rate of 43% in 2008, driven mainly by the major paper manufacturers. Recently introduced legislation will ...
The development of an experimental technique for UG-2 ore flotation.
Production of platinum and associated metals is a major source of revenue for South Africa. Significant losses occur in the concentrating stage (10 to 15 per cent) and this research is focused on optimising platinum ...
An investigation of froth effects in scavenging flotation of platinum from UG-2 ore.
South Africa is the largest supplier of platinum group metals (PGMs), which are mined from three reefs in the Bushveld Igneous Complex. About 60% of the world’s mined PGMs come from a single reef, the UG-2 reef (Mudd, ...
A comparison between column and mechanical cell performance in platinum flotation.
Froth flotation has been used to concentrate minerals for over a century (Finch and Dobby, 1990) and it is essential for the economical recovery of metals which are present at low concentrations. The traditional flotation ...
Development and modelling of a semi-batch flotation apparatus.
When designing or optimizing flotation circuits in mineral processing plants, it is necessary to have accurate values of the flotation kinetics to ensure the correct mass pulls and material balances on the plant. Previous ...
A study of processes occurring in flotation froths.
While the significant effect that the froth phase has on the performance of a flotation operation has recently been widely recognised, little work has been published which promotes an understanding of the physical processes ...
