chapter 4 mining wastetailings. tailings is the residual material from the enrichment process and consist of a fine grained, silty slurry with a highwater content. the amount of tailings generated is dependent on the ore grade, (proportion of valuable minerals in the ore). for example, if the cutoff grade in the ore is 1 % copper, 99 percent of the total ore wouldabstract usgsfigure 10 provides a series of cost curves summarizing the total cost equations for each mill model. tailings pond. tailings ponds are required for most milling facilities. for the mill cost models, the cost of a tailings pond is required for all models except heap leach and solvent extractionelectrowinning.common basic formulas for mineral processing calculationsmar , · formula (32) is very convenient for milling calculations on ores of this type. example an ore contains 5% lead and 1% copper. the ratio of perfect concentration for a concentrate of maximum grade and 100% recoveries of lead and copper would be by (29) k perfect = 100/5.775+2.887 = .545 and % pb in perfect concentrate = .545 x 5 = 57.7%estimated reading time 8 minstrithiocarbonates for pgm flotationweeks. on a 24hour basis, feed, concentrate, and tailings samples were collected. the ttc was dosed along with dtc and dtp at the mill feed hopper, while the remainder of the chemicals were added at the pilotplant conditioning tank. preliminary plant trial section / ofeconomic filters for evaluating porphyry copper depositopenpit porphyry copper mines under current, and potentially future, economic conditions. economic filters based on these simplified engineering cost models provide a method for estimating potential tonnages of undiscovered metals that may be economic in individual assessment areas. one implication of the economic filter results for1.1 phases of a mining projectgrade copper ore may be only one quarter of one percent. the g content of a good grade g ore may be only a few onehundredths of a percent. therefore, the next step in mining is grinding (or milling) the ore and separating the relatively small quantities of metal from the nonmetallic material of the ore in a process calledchapter modelling of mills and milling circuitsjan 01, 07· jan 01, 07· grade efficiency curve of the classifier the perfect mixing mill model does avoid the problem of residence times in the mill. the objective of such investigations is the estimation of conditions, under which the millclassifier circuit has stable steadystate characteristics.
1 froth flotation fundamental principles1.1.1 grade/recovery curves while each of these single calculated values are useful for comparing flotation performance for different conditions, it is most useful to consider both the grade and the recovery simultaneously, using a grade/recovery curve. this isthe beach placer iron deposit of portman bay, murcia, sefeb 23, · feb 23, · the amount of disposed tailings materials is then 56,237, t. we estimate that about 73 % of the tailings (about 41 × 10 6 t) correspond to mp2 ore and therefore contains magnetite. on the other hand, 7.7 × 10 3 3 t of tailings between 60 and 66 (table 1), that is, a ratio of about 1/33 (3 % magnetite concentrate in ore). thus, we1 froth flotation fundamental principlesthe rest was lost in the tailings. (c) the % cu loss can be calculated by subtracting the % cu recovery from 100% % cu loss = 100 95.7 = 4.3% this means that 4.3% of the copper present in the ore was lost in the tailings.
