Minerals and Metallurgy
This program conducts a wide variety of mining industry bench-to-pilot scale studies related to crushing, grinding, screening and mineral separation (both gravity separation and chemical flotation) for a wide variety of ferrous and non-ferrous mineral types.
Watch our short video of some of the mineral processing capabilities at our Coleraine Lab.
- Development of grinding technologies and criteria for Minnesota ores
- Experimentation with high intensity magnetic separation to enhance iron recovery
- Development and demonstration of new flotation technologies to harvest both hematitic and magnetic iron to increase mine yields and reduce cost
- Development of ore processing for emerging mineral opportunities
