Unformatted text preview: b) The content (wt%) of Mineral A in the concentrate from the third cell only. c) The recovery (%) of Mineral A in the concentrate from the fifth cell only. d) The content (wt%) of Mineral A in the final tailings exiting the entire bank. 3) The mass balance equation for a flotation separation can be written as: m F * M F = m C * M C + m T * M T where m F , m C, and m T are the masses of ore feed (F), concentrate (C), and tailings (T), respectively. M F , M C , M T are the metal (or mineral) contents (wt%) in ore feed, concentrate, and tailings. How would you define the recovery of metal (or mineral) in the concentrate from the above equation ?...
