Sep 21, 2021 Digesting of a flotation concentrate with sulfuric acid converts the rare-earth compounds firm fluorcarbonates to sulfates. Action of the acid releases gaseous compounds of fiuorine and silicon, leaving the sulfated material free of these elements carbon dioxide from carbonate decomposition is eliminated at the same time.
the difficulty in rare earth flotation lies, i.e. both the desired and gangue minerals are oxides. Thus, efficient separation of one oxide from another can prove extremely complex. The following subsections will present both the past and present methodologies used commonly in rare earth flotation of bastnasite, monazite and xenotime.

A process for producing at least one rare earth chloride from an ore containing the at least one rare earth comprises contacting the ore containing the at least one rare earth with reactants comprising a carbonaceous reducing agent, chlorine, and a boron-containing Lewis acid in a chlorination reactor to produce a gaseous product and a non-volatile chloride mixture
Mar 26, 2020 The recovery of rare earth values from the lean-grade ores requires several stages of mineral beneficiation and hydrometallurgical unit operations. The mineral beneficiation techniques such as gravity concentration, magnetic separation, electrostatic separation, and flotation were employed for the recovery of rare earth minerals.
Oct 07, 2021 The Companys lead metallurgical consultants at SGS Minerals Services Canada (SGS) have simplified the final process stage with an acid bake to crack the mineral xenotime, to purify the pregnant leach solution and to precipitate a rare earth oxalate, which is subsequently calcined to form a product containing 98% total rare earth oxides (TREO).
Through a process of crushing, milling, conditioning and flotation, the rare earth elements in the ore are separated from the other elements, forming a rare earth concentrate. The concentrate undergoes a complex chemical process to purify, recover, separate and precipitate the individual rare earth elements.
The flotation of rare earth element (REE) bearing minerals is a topic which has been dominated in ... experimented with the introduction of surfactants to the solvent-based synthesis process to improve yields (Wang Nagaraj, 1989). An additional patent was granted during this time period to Yoon and Hilderbrand
In flotation of rare earth ores, in order to simplify flotation process and save flotation reagents, high intensity magnetic separation technology is sometimes used to pre-enrich rare earth ores. Electric separation method Rare earth ore electroseparation is mainly due to the fact that rare earth ore belongs to non-good conductor.
A process and flotation agents are provided for flotation of lead-, uranium-, and rare earth-type minerals and ores in which an aqueous pulp of the mineral or ore is subjected to a froth flotation, characterized in that the flotation is performed in the presence of a tertiary amine flotation agent having the general formula STR1 wherein R is a aliphatic hydrocarbon group having
