FROTH FLOTATION AT GEOLABS
Graphite has many uses, some of which are in: batteries, steel making, brake linings, foundry facings and lubricants.
Geolabs offers a full range of flotation methods for concentrating graphite ores.
Spodumene has become a popular worldwide source of lithium for the ever growing batteries industry.
Geolabs specializes in the characterization and beneficiation of spodumene ores.
Petalite has become a popular, albeit not as lithium-rich, alternative to spodumene. Petalite, however, is mostly used in the ceramics industry due to its thermal shock resistance.
Iron Ore Flotation
Iron ore fines flotation is key in highly weathered iron ore deposits where there is a large proportion of fines or slimes.
Geolabs can concentrate your iron bearing minerals effectively, by reverse flotation.
Flotation of Sulphides
Flotation of Lithium-Bearing Mica
Being a South African metallurgical laboratory, we also offer flotation tests for sulphides.
Zinnwaldite and lepidolite are becoming increasingly popular as alternative lithium sources. Lithium demand is expected to increase substantially over the next decade. Geolabs has much success in the upgrade and recovery of these minerals by froth flotation
