Magnesite Beneficiation Plant Cost

Magnesite is the major source of magnesium oxide and is the most important raw material utilized in refractory industries for manufacturing of basic refractories, having a high corrosion resistance in the presence of basic slags, dusts and fumes in metallurgy, chemical and ceramic industries. Shaped and unshaped magnesite refractories have been used over many years as high strength hot-face refractories in a wide range of furnaces.

Magnesite Beneficiation Methods

The demand for high purity magnesium oxide has increased considerably in recent years and it has become necessary to develop more efficient processes for magnesite separation from associated gangue minerals to obtain higher grade magnesite. Gravity separation and flotation are two major methods used for magnesite ore beneficiation. Gravity separation is employed for coarse size (i.e. >1 mm) and flotation is commonly used for fine magnesite separation, particularly when a high grade of magnesite concentrate is needed.

The dissolution characteristic of mineral has significant effects on flotation. It affects the solution composition, surface charge and its floatability. Magnesite can be classified into salt type minerals in terms of its flotation response. It is floated with anionic type collectors during direct flotation, whereas impurities are floated with both anionic and cationic type collectors during reverse flotation.

Magnesite ores are produced by open pit mining by developing benches up to 7.5 m height. Mining activities in open pits may be divided into five main stages such as overburden removal, drilling, blasting, loading, and transporting to magnesite beneficiation plant. Enrichment of raw magnesite minerals from open pit can be divided into the following main operations: screening, crushing, sizing, and concentration, and most of these operations are widespread to the production of sized aggregates and ores.
