The more gangue is discarded in tailings the more the separation operation is successful The earth material is mixtures of extractable minerals and extraneous rocky material described as gangue It is a mineral or a group of minerals that have no economic value in the ore they also called sterile unwanted or undesirable minerals

mineralprocessingplant Gangue processing plant The separation of mineral from gangue is known as mineral processing mineral dressing or ore dressing and it is a necessary and often significant aspect of mining It can be a complicated process depending on the nature of the minerals

Nickel sulphide ore subjected to this investigation was taken from the Marmara district of Turkey where widespread chromite mineralization can be observed Some amounts of magnetite and chromite exist in the ore together with sulphide and oxide type nickel minerals The ore sample contains 1 32 Ni 10 79 SiO2 78 39 Fe2O3 1 3 g t Ag and 1 0 g t Au

In this study segregation roasting and magnetic separation are used to extract nickel from a garnierite laterite ore The garnierite laterite ore containing 0 72 Ni 0 029 Co 8 65 Fe 29 66 MgO and 37 86 SiO2 was collected in the Mojiang area of China Garnierite was the Ni bearing mineral the other main minerals were potash feldspar forsterite tremolite halloysite quartz and

Apr 24 2012· Ore vs Mineral Mineralogy is the study of minerals More than 4000 minerals have been discovered and they have a crystalline structure Inside the earth due to heat and various other reactions minerals and rocks melt together

Copper Nickel ores Danafloat Home Pentlandite Ni Fe S is the most important nickel sulphide mineral and is often associated with nickel containing pyrrhotite and chalcopyrite Gangue minerals can include talc and other troublesome silicates which must be dispersed and or depressed Inquire Now

Gaspeite is found as a secondary mineral around nickel sulfide deposits It was thought of as just a gangue mineral by miners when it was encountered and usually placed in the mines dumps or tailings A gangue mineral is a mineral that probably contains the ore metal but its chemistry is such that processing it is either impossible or

gangue minerals thus leading to nickel loss Flotation Practice in Nickel Sulde Deposits Nickel sulRde minerals such as pentlandite can in general be separated from their gangue by Sotation using a thiol group of collectors like xanthates and alkyl dithiophosphates in the presence of variety of

Most widespread minerals containing Nickel This list of minerals containing Nickel is built from the mindat org locality database This is based on the number of localities entered for mineral species and is therefore slanted towards minerals interesting to collectors with less coverage of common rock forming minerals so it does not give an undistorted distribution of Nickel mineral species

Copper Nickel ores Pentlandite Ni Fe S is the most important nickel sulphide mineral and is often associated with nickel containing pyrrhotite and chalcopyrite Gangue minerals can include talc and other troublesome silicates which must be dispersed and or depressed

The importance of mineralogy in nickel projects Nickel can be contained in solid solution in some sulphides such as pyrrhotite and pyrite as well as some gangue minerals This is particularly an issue for low grade deposits where sometimes as little as half the nickel is in an unrecoverable form Not all nickel is recoverable 0 10 20 30

Gangue but also mineral The gangue refers to all minerals in the ore which have no economic value while the tailings are the mineral processing plant discard that contains mainly gangue minerals in addition to some valuable minerals The more gangue is discarded in tailings the more the separation operation is successful

Concentrating the nickel ores usually takes place close to the mine site and involves chemical and physical processes to crush the ore and separate the nickel bearing and gangue minerals Mining nickel directly is the obvious route to obtaining pure nickel however nickel can also be recovered as a byproduct of other metals

The Seymour Arsenic And Nickel Mine is near Seymour Connecticut Historically the site has been part of the Seymour Mining District The Seymour Arsenic And Nickel Mine was closed at the time of data entry with no known plans to re open Production size when active was considered to be small

Nickel is a silvery white metal with a slight golden tinge that takes a high polish It is one of only four elements that are magnetic at or near room temperature the others being iron cobalt and gadolinium Its Curie temperature is 355 °C 671 °F meaning that bulk nickel is non magnetic above this temperature The unit cell of nickel is a face centered cube with the lattice parameter of

In this example a nickel copper ore containing mainly pentlandite and chalcopyrite and smaller amounts of cobaltite pyrite and pyrrhotite has been assayed for nickel copper cobalt iron and sulphur silica and MgO The elements are divided into those present in the economic minerals and silica and MgO which are part of floatable gangue
