Ltd., Jaduguda froth flotation studies were carried out on a low-grade uranium ore sample from Domiasiat, Meghalaya. It was envisaged that froth flotation would be helpful in pre-concentration of the ore reducing the load on downstream hydrometallurgical steps. This paper presents the salient
This invention relates to a froth flotation process to beneficiate uranium economically from both low grade tailings dump ores or high grade ores by upgrading into a concentrate. The first stage is a sulphide flotation for pyrite recovery, followed by an oxide flotation for uranium recovery. The selectivity of the process for recovery of uranium in the concentrate is enhanced by maintaining ...
Several topological indices were calculated for substituted-cupferrons that were tested as collectors for the froth flotation of uranium. The principal component analysis (PCA) was used for data reduction. Seven principal components (PC) were found to account for 98.6% of

simple froth-flotation procedures. The common flotation reagents used are soda ash, sodium silicate, a neutral oil (kerosene), a xanthate, and a frother. Conditioning of the pulp prior to flotation plays an important role in the proc-ess, especially if the sandstone contains excessive amounts of
Oct 01, 2012 Alternatively, they may not improve true flotation of the ore in the pulp phase but may have an effect on the behaviour of the froth phase. Increases in froth stability would result in a higher recovery of valuable mineral, but a decrease in the grade of that mineral due to increased entrainment of gangue minerals (Wiese et al., 2011).

The froth of a flotation column is usually . water washed, with approximately as much wash water as there is water reporting to the froth. The water is most commonly added via pans, perforated with 4-8 mm diameter holes, located 20-30 cm above the froth, thus generating a rain of
Flotation Sulfides . Copper and moly are often found together as sulfides*. Sulfides in solution will float or sink with the right combination of chemicals and gas bubbles (froth flotation). These sulfide ores are separated from gangue (waste) material, then from each other, by froth flotation. Copper /Molybdenum Flotation Circuit Steps

That is why uranium is leached. Liberation of the uraninite requires grinding to sizes below those suitable for flotation. However, there are preferential association of the uraninite with some minerals while others were free of uraninite attachment. Uranium float to
Aug 11, 2016 Flotation Uranium bearing Copper ore. Uraninite and masuyite are the major uranium minerals, essentially fine grained, in the ores studied. Over 40% of the uranium is distributed in the -8m fractions compared with copper, which is concentrated mainly in the 8-20m range. Uranium is concentrated mainly in the copper ore zones, with only marginal levels in the gold-only ores.
Uranium in sea water is separated by froth flotation of the uranium(VI)-Arsenazo III-Zephiramine ion-adduct and then determined by neutron activation or spectrophotometric method using the uranium(IV)-Arsenazo III complex.
A combination of potassium amyl xanthate, cupferron and light diesel oil was used as collector for flotation of uranium bearing minerals in the sample. The effects of various process parameters were studied. Under the optimum conditions the flotation concentrate
A process for the flotation of oxides and sulfides of lead copper, uranium, and rare earth minerals and ores, which comprises subjecting an aqueous pulp of the mineral or ore to a froth flotation to float said minerals and ores from a gangue in the presence of a tertiary amine flotation agent having the general formula STR7 wherein R is an aliphatic hydrocarbon group having from about six to about

In this study, the ash was sulfurized in an autoclave before flotation. The sulfurization process was conducted at different amounts of H2S and H2O steam. The flotation process was continued with the obtained samples. By flotation of the sample obtained from optimum sulfurization conditions, the concentrates containing all the uranium, molybdenum, vanadium, nickel and titanium was obtained.
Jun 27, 2019 1 INTRODUCTION. Many coals in southwestern China are characterized by a high sulfur (S) content. 1 These highS coals are usually enriched with uranium (U). 2 Uranium is a naturally radioactive element, and the ultrafine particles released from Urich coals during combustion can have potentially adverse effects on human health. 3-5 Coal preparation is one effective approach to
Oct 25, 2014 The dosage of a collector is an important factor that determines the efficiency of a froth flotation process. The representative sample of the carbonatitic Palabora copper ore ground 45 % passing 75 m was froth-floated with sodium isobutyl xanthate (SIBX) collector at 60, 70, 80, 90 and 100 g/t dosages. The concentrates and tails were dried and analysed. The results obtained showed that
