Mineral processing, art of treating crude ores and mineral products in order to separate the valuable minerals from the waste rock, or gangue. It is the first process that most ores undergo after mining in order to provide a more concentrated material for the procedures of extractive metallurgy.
Processing Methods. Although there are a number of different diamond recovery technologies being utilized worldwide, the two principal types are Rotary Pan plants and Dense Media Separation (DMS). Both methods are in actual fact used for bulk material reduction and require a further process for the final diamond recovery.
Environmental Risks of Mining
Mining is an inherently invasive process that can cause damage to a landscape in an area much larger than the mining site itself. The effects of this damage can continue years after a mine has shut down, including the addition to greenhouse gasses, death of flora and fauna, and erosion of land and habitat.
Feb 28, 2019The Fraser Institute Annual Survey of Mining Companies, 2018, rates 83 jurisdictions around the world based on their geologic attractiveness for minerals and metals and the extent to which government policies encourage or deter exploration and investment.This year, the state of Nevada ranks as the most attractive jurisdiction in the world for mining investment, followed by Western Australia
Final Recovery Methods
Final Recovery Methods. After processing the diamond bearing material in to concentrated form, final recovery of the diamonds is done by taking advantage of two further unique physical properties of diamonds – that they are hydrophobic, and that they fluoresce when exposed to x-rays.
