Gravity separation is the separation of two or more minerals of different specific gravity by their relative movement in response to the force of gravity and one or more other forces such as centrifugal, drag or buoyant forces. The resistance to motion, known as drag force, by a medium such as heavy media, water or even air, is one such force. Dense media separation utilises a medium with a density in between the density of the ore

Copper processing - Copper processing - Ores Principal forms in which copper ores are found include native copper, porphyry copper, massive deposits, and mixed ores. Native copper is simply the metal found unadulterated in nature. Occasionally copper is still found in its native form, but more frequently it is mixed with other minerals, some of which may have value themselves.
The ore is generally divided into blocks and processed by ripping, bulldozing, loading, and transporting. Mining in Quebec follows underground methods. Concentration of ore is accomplished by crushing and grinding, magnetic separation to remove magnetite, and then desliming and flotation separation. Extraction and refining Ferroniobium
Dec 06, 2016 Originally developed and patented in 1919, the density separation is achieved with two components, mechanical vibration and air fluidization. Today, TripleS line of density separators and stoners are being used in thousands of applications, from cleaning of leafy spices and peppercorns to reclaiming copper from scrap wire and cable.
The underflow contains high-density particles, and is generally coarser than the feed. At the same time, the coarse and fine low-density particles that may have been trapped in the dense fluidised bed will rise due to their density differential, and eventually migrate to the lamella section of the classifier.
pay metals. Dense medium separation DMS is a robust process that can be conducted at particle sizes as coarse as 300 mm and as fine as 500 m with high separation efficiency, depending on liberation characteristics of the value minerals. The DMS
In dense media separation a media is cre ated with a density in between the density of the ore and gangue particles. When subjected to this m edia particles either float or sink de pending on their
Gravity separation relies on density differences to separate desired materials from host rock. Devices used include gold pans, sluices, shaking tables, and jigs. Gravity separation is used at most placer mines and at some lode or vein deposits.4 Amalgamation Fine gold in placer deposits is often not separable from the ore minerals by density alone.

Flotation is widely used to concentrate copper, lead, and zinc minerals, which commonly accompany one another in their ores. Many complex ore mixtures formerly of little value have become major sources of certain metals by means of the flotation process. This article was most recently revised and updated by Chelsey Parrott-Sheffer, Research Editor.

The phosphate ore slime consisted mainly of apatite, quartz, dolomite, and clay. To start with, the ore slime was characterized in sufficient detail to reveal that it is extremely fine in distribution with a d50 of 65 m.
Ore genesis theories are dependent on the mineral or commodity. Ore genesis theories generally involve three components source, transport or conduit, and trap. This also applies to the petroleum industry, which was first to use this methodology. Source is required because metal must come from somewhere, and be liberated by some process.
