    May 03, 2017  Sodium silicate was somewhat effective in causing a differential or selective flotation of copper, as chalcopyrite from pyrite by keeping pyrite from floating. Sodium hydroxide and sodium sulfide gave, in most cases, a distinct separation of sphalerite from chalcopyrite; i.e., a high copper and low zinc by suppressing the flotation of sphalerite.

    Jan 05, 2019  1. Introduction. Chalcopyrite, the major mineral for copper production, is often found finely interlocked with iron sulfide minerals, particularly pyrite (Owusu et al., 2014).Pyrite is usually perceived as a gangue mineral and removed by flotation to minimize its contamination in copper concentrates (Wang and Forssberg, 1991).In froth flotation, hydrophobic particles are supposed to attach to ...

    Oct 01, 2016  In the flotation of copper-activated pyrite, cuprous xanthate is the predominant hydrophobic entity enabling pyrite flotation. Cuprous sulfide and xanthate complexes are easily oxidized in the presence of biopolymers (Mu et al., 2016a). The complexing strength of biopolymers is sufficient to extract the cuprous ions from its sulfide or xanthate ...
