The course will emphasize science and engineering principles and their application to operations.  Topics covered will include characterization (mineralogy, size, liberation); analysis of separation efficiency; size reduction; separations based on particle size, density, floatability, magnetic susceptibility, conductivity, solid-liquid separations; and materials handling.  The final session will concentrate on integration - how the various processes related to each other and how they are controlled, so that the total operation can be optimized.
