addition of pax was used to float the sulphide copper and am28 to float oxide copper at the same time. the ph of the pulp for flotation was the natural ph of the ground ore, at approximately ph 8.1. the conditioning and flotation times to collect each concentrate were the same as used in the sulphide batch flotation tests.
sulphide ores are the major source of valuable metals such as copper, lead, zinc, and nickel, as well as gold, silver, and platinum group metals (pgms), and flotation is the dominant industrial process to recover these metals via the production of a sulphide concentrate.

Selective flotation. pb-zn bulk flotation. sulphide minerals are floated by sulphydryl collectors (thio-componds) adsorption of sulphydryl collectors: adsorption of sulphydryl collectors may occur mainly by chemisorption at metal ion sites on a surface, and by electrochemical mechanisms. also physisorption may occur by van der.
Separating oxidized zinc minerals from flotation tailings is always a challenge. in this study, a flotation tailing from wulagen zinc mine in china (zn grade 1%) was processed using froth flotation with combinations of amines (opa 10, opa 1214, opa 13, dda) and na2s to study the effects of these amines on the zinc recovery as well as their interactions with other reagents, aiming to screen .
