A mineral separation process includes wet-grinding the ore to liberation of minerals, oxidizing the slurry using air, hydrogen peroxide or other oxidants and floating the valuable minerals at a pH between about 9.0 and 10.0 with a xanthate as collector, and a combination of a polyamine and a sulfur containing species as depressants for arsenide minerals.

Most of the arsenic and sulphide minerals could be removed effectively from the tailings using a combination of fine grinding, froth flotation, high-gradient magnetic separation (HGMS), and sizing.

Arsenic and Antimony Sulphide Minerals in Cyanidation

 · The successful cyanidation of gold ores containing appreciable amounts of arsenic or antimony sulphide minerals such as orpiment, realgar, and stibnite is usually difficult or even impossible.Extractions are low and the solutions soon become ''foul.'' The gold in such ores could be free and uncoated, and no trouble in dissolving it in clean cyanide solutions would be expected.

Arsenic in Copper Concentrate

 · Copper concentrates recently tested for mineralogy both measured about 0.44 percent arsenic content. This is above typical levels where penalties occur. Tennantite and enargite as well as Freibergite are copper arsenic sulphide minerals that respond to flotation in a similar manner to other copper sulphides.
