Platinum group elements have become imperative to many modern industrial applications (automobiles, jewelry, pharmaceuticals, electronics, fuel cells, etc.) but are mined in only a few places.

POTENTIAL CHANGES IN THE PHYSICAL BENEFICIATION PROCESSES THAT CAN IMPROVE THE RECOVERY GRADE OR COSTS FOR THE PLATINUM GROUP METALS J. Engelbrecht Multotec (Pty) Ltd Abstract Understanding the deportment of minerals in size fractions has already led to improvements in the flow sheets for platinum minerals beneficiation.
Global Hydrogen Economy: The Strategic Role of Platinum Group Metals in 2013, the Mapungubwe Institute for Strategic Reflection (MISTRA) identified that although there were developments in the platinum group metals (PGM) industry, there was limited collabo-ration and strained communication between stakeholders. In order
improvements in the flow sheets for platinum minerals beneficiation. There are, however, more potential changes in the flow sheets that may improve the recovery of platinum group metals or reduce the costs of beneficiation before refining. Based on known technology of pre-concentration, milling, gravity concentration,
Beneficiation and recovery of platinum group metals (PGMs) from the major reefs involves a complex set of unit operations that has evolved greatly over the last few decades. Over time, a number of interesting flowsheets have been developed for the concentration, separation and purification of PGMs.
An efficient beneficiation-hydrometallurgy combined process was proposed to treat the Jinbaoshan platinum group concentrate. The process included three steps: (1) oxygen pressure leaching of the platinum group concentrate to dissociate platinum group metals (PGMs) from base metal minerals; (2) separating PGMs from silicate minerals by physical flotation; (3) removing sulfur from the flotation .
Says Wilma Swarts, the chairperson of the Platinum Incubator: “While the Incubator’s historical focus has been on jewellery design and manufacture, it has the potential to play a much broader role in the beneficiation chain by actively promoting and encouraging young inventors, chemists, engineers, scientists, technicians, designers and .
sustainable beneficiation of platinum group minerals (PGM) in sulphide poor platinum (PGE) deposits, BEPGE” financed by TEKES and companies. The aim of this research is to develop a new, pro-environmental process for the beneficiation of sulphide poor PGE minerals. The main interest is on using carbon dioxide during grinding and flotation.
Multotec’s focus in the platinum beneficiation industry is the pusuit of optimal plant efficiency in order to reduce overheads and lower your overall cost per ton.. We evaluate each of our client’s requirements individually.
The focus at Tubatse will be on the beneficiation of platinum group metals, magnetite, vanadium and chrome. PMC provides the local market with 85% of its copper requirements. The other strong mineral focus in the eastern part of the province is at Phalaborwa where Palabora Copper, a subsidiary of Palabora Mining Company, produces about 45 000 .
