GRAVITY RECOVERY OF GOLD FROM WITHIN GRINDING

2019-10-1  Flotation plus Gravity In circuits that utilize flotation plus gravity, the economics of the gravity portion of the circuit are generally very strong. According to Dr. André Laplante (Laplante, 2005) the benefit for every 10% of recovery by gravity usually falls in the range of +0.5-5% of additional overall gold recovery.
