Gravity Concentration of Iron Ore

Rath, R K and Singh, Ratnakar (2007) Gravity Concentration of Iron Ore. In: Processing of Iron Ore, Nov. 28-Dec. 01, 2007, NML, Jamshedpur.



Gravity concentration process is the oldest beneficiation method known to mankind. This is a physical process and exploits the differences in densities of minerals to bring about a separation. Although with the advent of froth flotation, the relative importance of gravity concentrat-ion has declined in twentieth century but still on an average higher tonnage of material is treated by gravity concentration than flotation. The gravity separation processes are comparatively cheap and environmentally friendly. It finds immense application in the processing of iron ores besides coal, beach sands, gold, diamonds, platinum, baryte, fluorspar, tin, tungsten ores etc.
