In this study, particle shapes of talc mineral ground by various types of mills were determined using automated dynamic image analyzer by counting averagely 19,000 particles for each mill product. It was concluded that particles created by rod mill had the highest BRAR and the lowest C, while the particles having the highest C and the lowest BRAR were obtained by autogenous milling at 99% level of confidence.

In this study, zinc recovery from lead–zinc–copper ore was performed by column flotation with and without ultrasonic pretreatment. The results revealed that zinc grade and recovery were increased by ultrasonically assisted column flotation tests. It may be due to the increasing dispersion of ultrasound, increasing adsorption of collectors, and the hydrodynamic cavitation which produced small bubbles attaching to the hydrophobic particles, thereby increasing contact angle and attachment.

This study presents the evaluation of the sieving characteristics of some industrial minerals, namely, quartz, talc, and barite, and the establishment of possible correlations between the PSD and kinetics parameters. PSD of the −600 µm fractions of quartz, talc, and barite minerals were plotted in Schuhmann mathematical approach with size modulus (ks) and distribution modulus (αs). optimum sieving time and sieving rate constant (kk). were determined by sieving kinetics

In this study, the effects of air rate, bubble diameter, gas holdup, and superficial air rate on the column flotation performance were investigated. In order to obtain best results, operation parameters were optimized. Besides, the number of cleaning and scavenging stages of zinc circuit was reduced by using column flotation instead of mechanical flotation. Higher grade zinc concentrates (58.81% Zn) with higher recovery (74.21%) were obtained by 3 stages of cleaning and 3 stages of scavenging
Combination of Different Size Distributions for Mineral Particles by Applying Experimentally Determined Apparent Mean Shape Factor

It shows the constructions of whole size distribution by sieving and laser diffraction measurement, for different mill (ball and rod) products of some industrial minerals: barite and quartz minerals. A smooth overlap of corrected laser diffraction size distribution and sieve size distribution was obtained by applying the particle size with the apparent mean shape factor shifting to the right side of the curve for the rod-milled barite and ball- and rod-milled quartz.
