Surface interactions and locked cycle flotation of novel collectors on bastnäsite ore
Flotation of a bastnäsite containing ore with novel collectors was investigated using locked cycle froth flotation. Previous research into the flotation of bastnäsite ore simply considered single stage flotation and while this is a good place to start the testing of novel collectors, it is not representative of the conditions employed in a full-scale flotation plant. This study investigates both salicylhydroxamic acid (collector 2) and n,2-hydrocyclohexanecarboxamide (collector 5) in locked cycle flotation and contact angle studies and includes a comparative economic assessment comparing the two ...
