Froth Flotation of Iron Ores - article.sapub

2012-1-2  With the depleting reserves of high-grade iron ore in the world, froth flotation has become increasingly important to process intermediate- and low-grade iron ore in an attempt to meet the rapidly growing demand on the international market. In over half a century’s practice in the iron ore industry, froth flotation has been established as an efficient method to remove

CHAPTER-9 FROTH FLOTATION AND ITS APPLICATION

2020-5-6  The flotation method of concentration, used extensively for other metal ores, has only recently been utilized for hematite iron ores. It can be applied as either the sole concentration process or as a final concentration stage to ensure a high-grade product. In the flotation process, air is bubbled through a suspension of fine iron ore in water

the most popular flotation route in iron ore industry, the direct flotation of iron ox ides still appears desirable for some low grade iron ores that contain a vast amount of quartz. For example, at Republic Mine, Michigan, U.S.A., a hematite ore is upgraded from 36.5% Fe to 65.4% Fe with a Fe recovery of 82.5% using the direct flotation route.

Iron ore slimes flotation - ScienceDirect

2010-10-1  The flotation recoveries reached 41.7% (weight) and 80.5% (iron) and the global recoveries were 17.9% (weight) and 33.4% (iron). The achieved Gaudin’s selectivity index was 23.9. 4. ConclusionsThe target of producing a high grade iron ore concentrate from the final slimes of a mining operation, via cationic reverse flotation, was reached.

This work describes the concentration of iron ore slimes on a pilot scale by using a 500-mm diameter flotation column and a novel collector, which renders the use of a depressant unnecessary. The pilot column was operated in series with the industrial plant Vargem Grande 2 (Iron Quadrangle, Brazil) receiving, as feed, part of the underflow from the desliming thickener.
