2014-2-1  Rare earth elements have unique physicochemical properties that make them essential elements in many high-tech components. Bastnesite (La, Ce)FCO 3, monazite, (Ce, La, Y, Th)PO 4, and xenotime, YPO 4, are the main commercial sources of rare earths.Rare earth minerals are usually beneficiated by flotation or gravity or magnetic processes to produce concentrates that are

Another challenge, mostly specific to froth flotation, is the similarity between the surface physicochemical properties of the associated gangues and the phosphate-bearing minerals in WC. This deteriorates the flotation separation selectivity, highlighting the importance of the reagent type and solution pH as other key factors to be evaluated.

A review of reagents applied to rare-earth mineral flotation

Rare-earth mineral (REM) deposits can be broadly classified into four geological environments: carbonates, alkaline/peralkaline igneous rocks, placers and ion adsorption clays. Apart from ion adsorption clay deposits, which require no mineral processing steps, froth flotation is the most applied beneficiation technique.
