Heavy Mineral Sand

Mineral sands are commonly mined by floating dredges, feeding floating concentrators at up to 2,000 t h −1. Such concentrators, consisting of a complex circuit of sluices, spirals, or Reichert cones, upgrade the heavy mineral content to around 90%, the feed grades varying from less than 2%, up to 20% heavy mineral in some cases.
