MINE 335 Mineral Processing
Mineral separation processes of a physical and physicochemical nature are studied. Topics include size reduction, classification, flotation, flocculation, gravity concentration, magnetic, electrostatic separations and dewatering. Surface phenomena involving fine particle processing, reagent classifications, flotation machines and circuits, plant practice in ore flotation are discussed. Quantitative understanding of various topics is aided through problem solving in class and assignments on mass balancing, kinetic analysis and circuit sizing.
