Formatted abstract
A full and detailed description is given of the dense-medium cyclone plants used in Africa for the recovery of diamonds. The criteria used in plant design are discussed with reference to type and size of separator and to the associated screening and medium-recovery circuits.  The use of automatic controls and instrumentation in the operation of the plants is discussed, with examples from present practice.   Characteristics of the various types of media used are given, and the effects of changes in the quality and size of the medium are noted.  A break-down and comparison of the operating costs of various working plants are given.
