Destined to become an industry standard, this comprehensive reference examines all aspects of minerals processing, from the handling of raw materials to separation strategies to the remediation of waste products. The book incorporates state-of-the-art developments in the fields of engineering, chemistry, computer science, and environmental science and explains how these disciplines contribute to the ultimate goal of producing minerals and metals economically from ores. With contributions from more than 20 recognized authorities, this thorough reference presents the most current thinking on the science and technology of mineral processing. The book is an indispensable textbook for students of mineral processing and hydrometallurgy, and a practical reference for seasoned industry professionals interested in improving operational efficiencies. It presents the principles that govern various unit operations in mineral processing along with examples that illustrate how these principles apply to real-world situations. Topics are arranged in the order of the typical processing sequence, including communition, separation, flotation, hydrometallurgy, and waste handling.
This thorough volume describes state-of-the-art research and practice in mineral froth flotation as known and practiced a century after its introduction. Recognized experts provide in-depth coverage on the historical aspects of flotation; flotation fundamentals; flotation chemistry; flotation cells, modeling, and simulation; and flotation plant practice. Froth Flotation is an invaluable reference for industry professionals, researchers, and graduate students. A supplemental CD includes presentations from the Centenary of Flotation Symposium managed by the Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy.
