Mineral Flotation Feasibility Tests
Mineral flotation feasibility tests assess whether minerals can be separated using froth flotation and give an indication of flotation performance, also highlighting any potential processing issues. We provide laboratory flotation services that allow for the assessment of mineral flotation feasibility. This can be combined with mineralogical analysis and grinding optimisation in order to provide a comprehensive evaluation service at the early stages of project development.
The application of froth flotation for mineral separation is dependent on a number of factors, such as mineral grain size and gangue mineral components. Milling the samples is critical to the success of flotation (in addition to reagent addition, pH and other operating factors) and we apply our expertise in both comminution and mineral flotation to provide integrated processing evaluations.
