<p>Flotation separation of feldspars from quartz was first accomplished in 1936 and has been used commercially for many years. For example, the feldspar plant at Kona, North Carolina produced from alaskite ore a pottery spar with a maximum amount of 5 percent q:uartz . However, despite its proven successf,l otation still is not used for routine mineral separationsi n the mineralogy laboratory, and has received scant, if anv, attention in most mineralogy texts dealing with mineral separation.
Copper is produced in the U. S. primarily by pyrometallurgical smelting methods. Pyrometallurgical techniques use heat to separate copper from copper sulfide ore concentrates. Process steps include mining, concentration, roasting, smelting, converting, and finally fire and electrolytic refining.

This note is written therefore, to advertize the usefulness of flotation for mineral separation in the mineralogy laboratorl’ and to demonstrate its applicability specifically toward the problem of separating oligoclase from quartz.
And for larger machines in regulated markets, JCB is using Stage IIIB/Tier 4 Interim Isuzu engines, but for the 20 to 24 tonne cone crushers that it sells in lesser regulated markets, it will use its own Stage 2/Tier 2 Dieselmax engines.
Copper ore is produced in 13 states. In 1989, Arizona produced 60 percent of the total U. S. ore. Fourteen domestic mines accounted for more than 95 percent of the 1.45 megagrams (Mg) (1.6 millon tons) of ore produced in 1991.
But while the global appeal of excavators and wheeled loaders has resulted in the launch of two or more machines or machine options in order to meet the requirements of different markets around the world, the target market for articulated dump trucks (ADTs) is more-clear cut.
Since these machines are aimed at the North American and European markets in which they are traditionally most popular, ball mill manufacturers have had fewer concerns about making two ranges of equipment.
Mining produces ores with less than 1 percent copper. Concentration is accomplished at the mine sites by crushing, grinding, and flotation purification, resulting in ore with 15 to 35 percent copper. A continuous process called floatation, which uses water, various flotation chemicals, and compressed air, separates the ore into fractions. Depending upon the chemicals used, some minerals float to the surface and are removed in a foam of air bubbles, while others sink and are reprocessed.
