Flotation | ore dressing | Britannica
Flotation is widely used to concentrate copper, lead, and zinc minerals, which commonly accompany one another in their ores. Many complex ore mixtures formerly of little value have become major sources of certain metals by means of the flotation process.Flotation experiment research on a polymetallic sulfide ore of,The polymetallic separation flowsheet of copper/lead bulk flotation – copper/lead separation - priority flotation zinc and pyrite from the bulk flotation tailings was used. The concentrate indexes of the grade of copper, lead, and zinc were 20.87%, 49.91%, and 60.10%, respectively, and the recoveries were 75.59%, 91.62%, and 74.07%.Stabilization of lead and Zinc Flotation Circuits - sgs,STABILIZATION OF LEAD AND ZINC FLOTATION CIRCUITS AT .
