Optimise recovery with Molycop

Froth flotation is a physiochemical process that separates particles based on differences in surface wettability. Chemical treatments are applied selectively to alter mineral surfaces so they have the necessary properties to permit separation.

Molycop offers frothers, collectors and modifiers that enable the extraction of valuable minerals:

Frothers – Compounds that stabilise air bubbles so they remain well-dispersed in the slurry. They include alcohols, polypropylene glycols and tailor-made formulations.

Collectors – Reagents used to selectively adsorb onto the surfaces of particles. They greatly increase the contact angle so that bubbles adhere to surfaces. They included xanthate replacements, DTP/MTP, thionocarbamates and specialty blends. 

Modifers – Influence the way collectors attach to mineral surfaces by increasing adsorption onto a given mineral or by preventing adsorption. Modifiers include NaSH replacements, depressants, dispersants and sulfidizing modifers.

Fosterville Gold Mine: Successful Deployment of Milling Optimisation Technology

Agnico Eagle Fosterville Gold Mine (Fosterville) operates a gold plant in Australia comprising of a crushing and grinding circuit (SAG mill with a closed loop cyclone classification circuit) followed by flotation, bacterial oxidation and leaching circuits. The lack of surge capacity between the grinding and flotation circuit and restrictions on crushing operations due to noise constraints resulted in unique set of challenges, that required the implementation of a novel control solution using advanced instrumentation.
