Effective dewatering of colloidally stable mineral dispersions via prudent selection of high molecular weight (>2 million Da), polymeric flocculants which adsorb onto and bridge the particles and dramatically amplify their gravitational settling velocities, remains an important issue of interest to the mining and mineral processing industry. To develop the right customized approach for enhanced dewaterability of hydrophilic mineral (hydr)oxides, the present work investigates the use of eight… CONTINUE READING
