The course is divided into two broad sections:
• the science (surface chemistry) of flotation, and
• flotation technology and practice.
The course content is structured to provide a review of the current state of the fundamentals and technology of froth flotation. A significant part of the course is dedicated to presenting examples of the most common flotation separations of sulfide minerals, coal, oxide minerals, and industrial minerals such as potash and phosphates. The selected process examples cover a wide range of physicochemical conditions under which the froth flotation process is employed around the world.
