Paperback Brand: Description Wills' Mineral Processing Technology: An Introduction to the Practical Aspects of Ore Treatment and Mineral Recovery has been the definitive reference for the mineral processing industry for over thirty years.

This industry standard reference provides practicing engineers and students of mineral processing, metallurgy, and mining with practical information on all the common techniques used in modern processing installations.

Each chapter is dedicated to a major processing procedurefrom underlying principles and technologies to the latest developments in strategies and equipment for processing increasingly complex refractory ores. The eighth edition of this classic reference enhances coverage of practical applications via the inclusion of new material focused on meeting the pressing demand for ever greater operational efficiency, while addressing the pivotal challenges of waste disposal and environmental remediation.

Advances in automated mineralogy and analysis and high-pressure grinding rolls are given dedicated coverage. The new edition also contains more detailed discussions of comminution efficiency, classification, modeling, flocculation, reagents, liquid-solid separations, and beneficiation of phosphate, and industrial materials.

Connects fundamentals with practical applications to benefit students and practitioners alike Ensures relevance internationally with new material and updates from renowned authorities in the UK, Australia, and Canada Introduces the latest technologies and incorporates environmental issues to place the subject of mineral processing in a contemporary context, addressing concerns of sustainability and cost effectiveness Provides new case studies, examples, and figures to bring a fresh perspective to the field 4.

Unfortunately the book does not contain and details of gold metallurgy Cip. MC etc , although this huge area is covered in other books it would be useful to have a chapter with the basics in this book. On Wills' Mineral Processing Technology.

A particular problem arose with the extensive references to particular machines, concentrators and flowsheets. Where the point being illustrated remained valid, these were generally retained in the interest of minimising changes to the structure of the book.

It is perhaps a measure of Barry Wills' original achievement that it has taken more than a dozen people to prepare this latest edition. I would like to acknowledge my gratitude to my colleagues at the JKMRC and elsewhere, listed below, for subscribing their knowledge, experience and valuable time to this good cause; doing so has not been easy. Each chapter was handled by a particular individual with expertise in the topic several individuals in the case of the larger chapters.

I must also thank the editorial staff at Elsevier, especially Miranda Turner and Helen Eaton, for their support and patience, and Barry Wills for his encouragement of the enterprise. My job was to contribute some of the chapters, to restrain some of the more idiosyncratic stylistic extravagancies, and to help make the whole thing happen.

To misquote the great comic genius Spike Milligan: the last time I edited a book I swore I would never do another one. This is it.

Gold and platinum metals are found principally in the native or metallic form.

8th Edition

Silver, copper, and mercury are found native as well as in the form of sulphides, carbonates, and chlorides. The more reactive metals are always in compound form, such as the oxides and sulphides of iron and the oxides and silicates of aluminium and beryllium. The naturally occurring compounds are known as minerals, most of which have been given names according to their composition e.

Minerals by definition are natural inorganic substances possessing definite chemical compositions and atomic structures. Some flexibility, however, is allowed in this definition. Many minerals exhibit isomorphism, where substitution of atoms within the crystal structure by similar atoms takes place without affecting the atomic structure. The mineral olivine, for example, has the chemical composition Mg, Fe 2 SiO4, but the ratio of Mg atoms to Fe atoms varies in different olivines.

The total number of Mg and Fe atoms in all olivines, however, has the same ratio to that of the Si and O atoms. Minerals can also exhibit polymorphism, different minerals having the same chemical composition, but markedly different physical properties due to a difference in crystal structure.

Thus, the two minerals graphite and diamond have exactly the same composition, being composed entirely of carbon atoms, but have widely different properties due to the arrangement of the carbon atoms within the crystal lattice. The term "mineral" is often used in a much more extended sense to include anything of economic value which is extracted from the earth.

Wills' Mineral Processing Technology

Thus, coal, chalk, clay, and granite do not come within the definition of a mineral, although details of their production are usually included in national figures for mineral production. Such materials are, in fact, rocks, which are not homogeneous in chemical and physical composition, as are minerals, but generally consist of a variety of minerals and form large parts of the earth's crust.

For instance, granite, which is one of the most abundant igneous rocks, i. These three homogeneous mineral components occur in varying proportions in different parts of the same granite mass. Coals are not minerals in the geological sense, but a group of bedded rocks formed by the accumulation of vegetable matter. Most coal-seams were formed over million years ago by the decomposition of vegetable matter from the dense tropical forests which covered certain areas of the earth.

During the early formation of the coal-seams, the rotting vegetation formed thick beds of peat, an unconsolidated product of the decomposition of vegetation, found in marshes and bogs.

This later became overlain with shales, sandstones, mud, and silt, and under the action of the increasing pressure and temperature and time, the peat-beds became altered, or metamorphosed, to produce the sedimentary rock known as coal.


The degree of alteration is known as the rank of the coal, the lowest ranks lignite or brown coal showing little alteration, while the highest rank anthracite is almost pure graphite carbon.Why not share! Interestingly gold is an exception, its price having not changed much in real terms since the sixteenth century, due mainly to its use as a monetary instrument and a store of wealth Humphreys, See our Privacy Policy and User Agreement for details.

This latest edition highlights the developments and the challenges facing the mineral processor, particularly with regard to the environmental problems posed in improving the efficiency of the existing processes and also in dealing with the waste created.
