the surface properties and flotation of rare earth minerals

The rare-earth elements (REE), which encompass the fifteen metallic elements of the lanthanoid series of the periodic table, yttrium and occasionally scandium, have gained enormous public, economic and scientific attention in recent years. These elements, which have been found in over 250 minerals, …

As a common depressant, acidified water glass (AWG) has strong inhibitory effects on fluorite and calcite. The inhibited fluorite is difficult to be recovered, thus resulting in the waste of resources and low flotation efficiency. In this study, the interaction of fluoride ions with fluorite and calcite surfaces was investigated, and its effects of AWG adsorption on mineral surfaces were ...

Flotation: The flotation of rare earth ores is one of the main methods for the separation of rare earth ores. It uses the difference of physical and chemical properties between the surface of rare earth minerals and associated minerals to separate them from associated gangue and other minerals to obtain effective rare earth concentrates.

Rare-earth mineral (REM) deposits can be broadly classified into four geological environments: carbonates, alkaline/peralkaline igneous rocks, placers and ion adsorption clays. Apart from ion adsorption clay deposits, which require no mineral processing steps, froth flotation is the most applied beneficiation technique.

A critical step in the extraction of elements from ore, especially rare earth elements that are found in complex minerals, is separation. Froth flotation is a highly versatile method for physically separating particles based on differences in the ability of air bubbles to selectively adhere to specific mineral surfaces in a mineral/water slurry.

The separation by flotation of monazite from these minerals relies on the difference in the surface chemistry profile of the minerals. Understanding the surface properties of these minerals is the basis for establishing the concentration of monazite and, ultimately, improving the production of rare earth elements and compounds.

An improved understanding of the surface properties of the minerals is important in informing and optimising their processing, in particular for separation by froth flotation. The measurement of zeta potential can be used to extract information regarding the electrical double layer, and hence surface properties of these minerals.

The flotation response of bastnasite mainly depends on the surface charge and solution chemistry of. surface species. The pote ntial determining ions (pdi) appear to be pH …

Historically, the ability to effectively separate carbonate gangue from bastnaesite via flotation has frequently proven to be challenging without sacing significant rare earth oxide (REO) grade or recovery. However, in light of the fact that the rare earth bearing minerals …

In addition to the rare-earth elements, natural fluorite crystals containing ... We concluded that the flotation recovery of mineral depends on not only the collector adsorption capacity on mineral surface, but also on the collector coverage rate on the mineral surface, which is influenced by the surface properties of the mineral, such as ...

Abstract The flotation behavior of bastnaesite, a major mineral source of rare earth elements, is strongly affected by the dissolved species of gangue minerals that change the solution chemistry and mineral surface properties. In this work, the effect of dissolved calcite species on the flotation of bastnaesite was investigated by conducting micro-flotation experiments, zeta potential ...

Taking advantage of the difference in surface physical and chemical properties of rare earth minerals and associated minerals, flotation is used to separate them from associated gangue and other minerals to obtain concentrates, which is currently the main beneficiation method widely used in the production of rare earth veins.

1.Introduction. The rare earth fluorocarbonate mineral, bastnaesite (Ce,La)FCO 3, is a semi-soluble salt mineral, which minerals are characterized by their ionic bonding and are distinguished from soluble salt minerals by their limited solubility in water.The mineral bastnaesite consists mainly of the cerium subgroup or the lighter rare earths elements (Bulatovic, 2010).

Through a process of crushing, milling, conditioning, and flotation, rare earth elements are separated from waste to produce a mixed rare earth concentrate. The mixed rare earth concentrate undergoes a complex chemical process to purify, recover, separate, and precipitate individual rare earth elements.
