Abstract
The optimization of the flocculation sequence for mineral slurries has been studied by the U.S. Bureau of Mines. This paper discusses the importance of flocculation in obtaining optimum results from the solid-liquid separation unit operation common to most mineral processing schemes. Emphasis on how the flocculation step affects dewatering performance of screens and belt presses is discussed. Flocculation of phosphatic clay waste, effluents from placer gold mines, and coal-clay waste are discussed in terms of dewatering efficiency.
