Mineral Flotation International Mining

If the ore contains a low amount of iron sulphides, xanthate collectors are often suitable to float copper sulphideminerals. If native gold is present, dithiophosphates can be used which are less selective to iron sulphides. Increasing and controlling the pH within the flotation vessel to between 10 and 12 causes the process to become more selective, away from iron sulphide gangue minerals

Copper ores Danafloat

When liberated, typical copper sulphide minerals are relatively easy to float. When there are no overriding metallurgical issues, producing a sufficiently high copper concentrate grade is often the focus. Often the primary grade control issue relates to iron sulphide minerals since these also float with the copper, diluting copper concentrate grades. This is related as: 1) iron sulphide

Copper extraction Wikipedia

Most copper ores contain only a small percentage of copper metal bound up within valuable ore minerals, with the remainder of the ore being unwanted rock or gangue minerals, typically silicate minerals or oxide minerals for which there is often no value. In some cases, tailings have been retreated to recover lost value as the technology for recovering copper has improved.
