The five basic types of reagent used in froth flotation recovery include collectors, frothers, depressants, activators and modifiers. when designing the processing plant, the types and quantities of reagents used should be considered together with any depressing requirements to lessen environmental impacts in the tailings streams ritcey 1989.
The flotation tailings pond of the bor copper mine poses a great ecological problem not only for the town of bor but also for the surrounding soils and watercourses. since the old flotation tailings contain about 0.2 of copper on the average, we investigated their leaching with sulphuric acid in the absence and presence of an oxidant.

Jun 15, 2018 generally, flotation tailings are produced as a byproduct of flotation and still consist of un‒recovered copper. in addition, it is expected that more tailings will be produced in the coming years due to the increased exploration of low‒grade copper ores.Recovery of copper from flotation tailings by leaching p.128. comparison between some simulation methods regarding the thermal stress on disc brake p.135. intricacy of the transit manifold concept paid-off by computational accuracy p.142. modeling and numerical investigations for launching a free-flight models using light-gas propulsion flotation.
Improved flotation kinetics in first recycling of melbourne and deionised waters were observed. three recycles of mine water in the flotation process indicated a steady‐state rate for copper tailings. this was not valid for melbourne and deionised waters where flotation was flotation.

This work presents the study of copper extraction from smelter slag, which is subjected to sulphating. sulphating of slag was performed by pyrite concentrate or flotation tailings at temperatures from 500 to 650 c, and the resulting calcine was leached with water. the results showed that maximum copper.
The importance of flotation separation has long been, and continues to be, an important technology for the mining industry, especially to metallurgical engineers. however, the flotation process is quite complex and expensive, in addition to being influenced by many variables. understanding the variables affecting flotation efficiency and how valuable minerals are lost to the tailings gives flotation.
Two bovac disc filters l176 are operated in a gold/copper mine in bulgaria for the filtration of flotation tailings which are used for mine backfill. the dewatered and discharged filter cake is mixed with cement and pumped back to the underground to fill the galleries. for this special application the filtered tailings need to have a certain residual moisture to ensure constant conditions for flotation.Nov 16, 2020 many copper tailings have more sio2 and caco3, some fes2 and another sulfide. 02 2.copper tailings reprocessing method 1vulcanization flotation of copper tailings. the essence of vulcanization flotation is to sulfide the ground copper oxide pulp with sulfide and flotation flotation.Jul 22, 2020 this work aimed to investigate optimal leaching technology for copper extraction from old flotation tailings of the copper mine bor. the leaching degree of copper after leaching with sulphuric acid at 80 c was 50, the maximal leaching degree was achieved after 30 minutes. then, old flotation tailings were leached with adapted moderately thermophilic acidophilic bacteria in a bioreactor at flotation.Ore concentration by froth flotation. remember that only 0.67 of the ore is copper. the copper minerals and waste rock are separated at the mill using froth flotation. the copper ore slurry from the grinding mills is mixed with milk of lime simply water and ground-up limestone to give a basic ph, pine oil yes, it comes from trees -- a by flotation.
