         FLOTATION,METAL RECOVERY AND THE IMPORTANCE OF STABLE BUBBLES"   

                 A brief outline: Froth flotation is used extensively in the minerals industry to separate valuable minerals from gangue.This complex process continues to fascinate researchers and frustrate plant operators,not least due to sensitivity to a vast array of variables and their interactions.In this talk we will explore the role of the froth phase in determining and optimising separation performance,and look at challenges that are faced by the minerals processing industry in general,and the flotation community in particular.
