Gravity Concentration

Das, Avimanyu and Singh, Ratnakar and Sahu, K K and Abhilash, and Goswami, N G (2008) Gravity Concentration. In: Training Course on Mineral Processing and Nonferrous Extractive Metallurgy, June 30 - July 5, 2008, NML, Jamshedpur.



Gravity concentration process that exploits the differ-ences in densities of minerals to bring about a separ-ation is the oldest beneficiation method known to mankind. Although with the advent of froth flotation, the relative importance of gravity concentration has declined in twentieth century, on an average higher tonnage of material is still treated by gravity concentration than flotation. It finds diverse applications in the treatment of coal, beach sands, iron, gold, diamonds platinum, barite, fluorspar, tin, tungsten ores etc. The gravity separation processes are comparatively cheaper and enviro-nment friendly.
