Effect of a Small Amount of Iron Impurity in Sphalerite on ...

Through industrial testing at the Huize lead-zinc mine, it was found that the floatability of sphalerite varied greatly with the iron impurity content. Three kinds of Huize sphalerites with iron contents of 2.30 wt.%, 3.20 wt.% and 4.66 wt.%, were used to study the influence of small amounts of iron impurity in the sphalerite on xanthate adsorption and flotation behavior.

 · 1. Introduction. Sphalerite is a valuable mineral for zinc and has been one of the most studied sulphide minerals in relation to its flotation (Finkelstein and Allison, 1976, Finkelstein, 1997).Recovery of sphalerite from ores is quite a complex process; generally its flotation needs to be first depressed in copper and lead circuit at neutral to mildly alkaline pH values before it can be ...

Activation of Sphalerite by Ammoniacal Copper Solution in ...

 · The activation of sphalerite particles by ammoniacal copper solution (ACS) was investigated in this study. This microflotation study was conducted on a single sphalerite mineral with the particles size of 38 μ m to 75 μ m. Results showed that ACS has somewhat better activation effect than copper sulphate (a traditional activator) with sodium isobutyl xanthate as the collector.

copper-activated sphalerite is not efficient at lower dosages of zinc sulphate alone. In addition, Trahar et al.

The experimental data on copper-zinc ore flotation have shown that sphalerite and pyrite present at the final process stages of col-lective–selective flotation possess equal kinetics of floatability. This is particularly obvious in zinc flotation cycle, where pyrite is only depressed with lime and blue copperas activates both sphaler-

At very low potentials, however, elemental copper is formed, which may worsen the selectivity of the sphalerite flotation. Controlled potential contact angle measurements showed that xanthate adsorption does occur on copper-activated sphalerite at all pH ranges. However, the contact angles and flotation recovery decrease at near neutral pH.
