The Sarcheshmeh copper mine is a significant copper and molybdenum producer. Sampling of the Sarcheshmeh flotation circuit (in a six month period) showed that a large share of waste of molybdenite took place in rougher cells. Since the rougher cells tailing is transferred to tailing thickener,

ground to 70 percent passing 200 mesh and sent for initial copper flotation. The copper froth flotation circuit is similar to that used at most other copper flotation facilities, with both rougher and scavenger circuits. The Superior operation uses Minerec (M200) as the collector and MIBC (methylisobutyl carbonol) as the frother. The equipment used for this initial copper flotation consists
Canada based international gold mining company Dundee Precious Metals (DPMs) Tsumeb copper smelter, in Tsumeb, in Namibia, achieved record smelting production in December, with quarterly
The pH in the roughers was dropped from 10.6 to 9.6 to determine the impact on the rougher performance and the subsequent performance of the whole copper flotation circuit. It was found that there was a slightly increased improvement in copper recovery and no statistical change in either the rougher or final copper concentrate grades for copper
The 12Mt/y copper gold concentrator at Phu Kham commenced production in April 2008. Flotation copper and gold recovery from commissioning was consistently poor, due to the high levels of pyrite and problematic secondary and oxide copper species and non sulfide gangue.
to measure the froth behaviour on top of the flotation cell. The copper rougher feed and copper rougher tails streams are sampled and analysed by multi
At that stage, the smelter produced more than 3500 tons of copper and 6000 tons of lead per month. In 1988, the Tsumeb complex was taken over by Gold Fields South Africa and administered by Gold Fields Namibia. Approximately six years later, the lead smelter was closed permanently.

Worlds largest flotation cells improve copper and molybdenum recovery in Mexico The first two Outotec TankCell 174; e630s the largest operating flotation cells in the world at 630 m 3 are running at the Buenavista del Cobre (BVC) concentrator in Northern Mexico.
The ore is mined from an open pit, crushed, and fed to ten ball mills. The concentrator is divided into two parallel comminution flotation sections, so that five ball mills feed each flotation section. Both sections consist of three bulk copper and molybdenum rougher flotation lines, and the rougher concentrate is transferred to a regrinding stage.
The Flotation Process. Air is pumped into each cell, the solution being agitated to bring froth of bubbles to the surface. In the case of copper minerals, the particles adhere to this froth, which is separated, whereas the great bulk of the useless material sinks to the bottom of the tanks. By varying the chemical conditions within
and commissioned in November 2008. During the initial stages of sulphide operation, high copper (Cu) low zinc (Zn) ore was fed to the plant. Marketable copper concentrate at 91 95% recovery was produced utilizing a high pH bulk sulphide rougher flotation and 2 cleaning stages. Because of

A New Application For Flotation Of Oxidized Copper Ore . When flotation of the oxidized copper ore was performed under standard operating conditions in the plant, good results were not obtained. Because of this, the flotation of samples obtained from sulfurized medium containing different ratios of H2S+ H2O gases was done under the same conditions.

Nevsun Resources copper expansion project at its Bisha mine in Eritrea reached commercial production in early December, following successful commissioning of a new copper flotation plant. Nevsun began producing gold at Bisha in December 2011, processing ore from the projects oxide cap.
Scavengers provide a final, strong flotation treatment for the rougher tailings by using a strong concentration of reagents and vigorous flotation to recover as much of the remaining sulfide minerals as possible. The float from the scavenger flotation is often recycled through a regrinding mill and sent back to the rougher flotation cells.
The Newcrest Telfer Mine has implemented advanced process control technology to obtain stable level operation and consistent mass pull in the copper rougher and scavenger flotation circuits.
It was found that there was a slightly increased improvement in copper recovery and no statistical change in either the rougher or final copper concentrate grades for copper and gold. With the reduction in pH, there was a noticeable reduction in lime usage from 0.85 kg of lime per tonne of ore processed to 0.55 kg/t. This reduction in lime is equivalent to approximately $700,000 per annum at current production
The tailings from the molybdenum plant are the final copper concentrate (typically greater than 30% copper). Following molybdenum rougher flotation and several stages of cleaning, a final molybdenum concentrate is produced. The final molybdenum concentrate is typically greater than 55%. Lead/Zinc Ore. Lead and zinc often occur in the same ore.
Copper oxide ores have occasionally been treated via froth flotation via sulfidation of the oxide minerals with certain chemicals which react with the oxide mineral particles to produce a thin rime of sulfide (usually chalcocite), which can then be activated by the froth flotation plant.

Leach Solution (PLS) is then pumped to the SX/EW plant for processing into cathode copper of at least 99.99% purity. 4.6 Product Sales The pure copper cathode sheets are trucked to Walvis Bay for export. The company has an offtake agreement for 100% of the copper cathode expected to be produced throughout the life of the mine.
The bench scale flotation tests were conducted using a laboratory scale Denver flotation machine. At the first stage, the effect of particle size, pH, types and amounts of collector, depressant, and frother were investigated. The ore sample of 1 kg was used for each flotation test. The flotation tests comprised of four stage rougher at
Froth flotation cells to concentrate copper and nickel sulfide minerals, Falconbridge, Ontario. Froth flotation is a process for separating minerals from gangue by taking advantage of differences in
Jan 16, 20180183;32;Fig. 1 shows the rougher flotation in a certain copper flotation site. During the whole flotation process, rougher is the first step of screening after ore is ground, mixed with water and classified. The products from rougher include the rougher froth on top of the cell and the pulp flow at the bottom of the cell.

The rougher froth can then be reground to increase the liberation of the copper sulphides from the iron sulphides before being fed to the cleaner flotation vessels. This results in a significant upgrade in copper in the cleaner froth whilst still achieving a high copper recovery.
