  • About the Author

The book deals with the methodologies used in processing/separation of minerals from their ores, including pre-processing, dressing and separation techniques. Diverse types and grades of ore require diverse machinery, tools and techniques: the book amply addresses this need for variety of treatment. Besides these, background reading on occurrence of ores, mineralogy, properties of minerals and ores; all the important aspects of machinery used in practice; experimental methods; and numerical calculations involving extractive metallurgy have been given at appropriate depth. 

  • Integrated coverage of theory, practical methods, and derivation of formulae and numerical problem solving.
  • Dedicated section on machinery used in mineral processing including numerical calculations, construction and principle of working.
  • In-depth treatment of processes including crushing, grinding, sizing, flotation, etc.
  • Step by step treatment of processes and ample exercises for practice and experiments for lab courses.
  • Reference to various industry standards, as applicable.
