Heavy Liquid Concentration of Brucite.
NTIS: PB 200 698 :12 pages
Laboratory batch and semi-continuous studies showed the feasibility of using methylene bromide and trichloroethylene in heavy liquid cyclone concentration of a Nevada brucite ore. Cyclone tests of minus 20- plus 200-mesh material at specific gravities of 2.42 And 2.44 Recovered 71.6 to 74.9 percent of the mgo at grades of 95.5 And 95.4, Respectively. Neither increasing the feed pulp density from 5 to 25 percent solids, nor varying feed pressures from 25 to 60 psig had any apparent effect on the heavy liquid separation. Work done in cooperation with the University of Alabama.
