Minerals extraction and processing: new developments.
Science 1976 Feb; 191(4228):720-723
This Bureau of Mines paper presents examples of new industrial practices illustrating advances in minerals technology. Continuous copper smelting, improved activated carbon systems for gold, flocculation-flotation of iron ore, and in situ leaching of uranium are four newly adopted processes that indicate how the technology base is being broadened, although they do not necessarily reflect industry trends.
