Ore dressing

Jump to: navigation, search

Treatment of ores to concentrate their valuable mineral constituents into less bulky products. The worthless gangue material is separated and discarded. The ore-dressing process involves the breaking apart of the associated constituents of the ore by mechanical means (such as crushing and grinding) and the separation of these components into concentrate and tailing using mechanical or physical methods (such as floatation).
