Possibilities and Limitations of Gravity Concentration as Applied to Pitchblende Ores at Port Radium, N. W. T.

CIM Bulletin, 1950


EXPERIENCE at Eldorado has been gained with a variety of mill feeds. That is, the actual mode of occurrence of the pitchblende varies to such an extent that gravity concentration has at times been decidedly unattractive and at other highly successful. Because of this, the type of ore necessary for economic recovery of pitchblende have become well known. Also, those types which do not lend themselves to gravity concentration have become familiar .
