3. Main process technical services:
(1) Efficient separation and comprehensive utilization of complex polymetallic sulfide ore
For the complex and refractory Cu-Pb-Zn polymetallic and associated precious metal sulfide ores, we can provide efficient and effective beneficiation packages. At present, a set of solutions, such as bulk and selective flotation, differential flotation, ultra-fine grinding, flash flotation, effective copper collector and lead depressant , etc. are available to solve process and operation issues. All such technical solution packages have been successfully applied in our Zijin mining industry, creating significant economic benefits for enterprises.
(2) Novel high-efficiency flotation technology for refractory oxide copper ore
For the refractory sulfide-oxide mixed copper ore, we offer a new scheme of " first sulfide and following oxide, sulfide/oxide copper sequential flotation" integrating with bulk flotation, desliming, magnetic separation. Our novel solution is able to recover as high as 85% Cu from refractory oxide copper ore, creating great economic benefits for the enterprises.
(3)New high-efficiency flotation technology for arsenic-bearing low grade refractory gold ore
For the arsenic-bearing micro-fine refractory gold ore, we provide novel flotation schemes (electrochemistry, carrier-flotation, flash-flotation, ultra-fine grinding, etc.), new reagents (gold promotor, arsenic depressant, pH and ORP modifier etc.) and beneficiation-metallurgy combined process.
(4)Diagnosis and optimization of comminution systems
We deliver services of examination, diagnosis and optimization for crushing, grinding and classification, such as determination of ore comminution performance, optimization of SAG mill process, ball mill grinding and classification parameters, and charging ball system in mill, so as to achieve "more crushing and less grinding" objective, maximize system capacity, improve beneficiation performance and reduce energy cost.
We offer site technical services with our available technological packages for our clients and have established long-term cooperation relationship with many mines. Our scientific researchers root in field and provide comprehensive technical services, such as stabilizing process and optimizing performance, investigating beneficiation process, applying new process, new reagent and new equipment, etc..
