Written by a collection of internationally recognised specialists, this book is a practical and informative resource for anyone whose job is related to minerals and their processing. As the title suggests the book is about process mineralogy and provides information on a number of the currently available tools for mineral characterisation together with a wide range of examples showing how they can be applied. The chapters of the book have been divided into three main sections with the first highlighting a number of the key tools and techniques used to collect the mineralogical data needed to measure process performance. Information on how to apply the resulting data in process analysis is provided in the second section of the book while the final section is dedicated to case studies. The case study section provides a unique collection of examples which demonstrate current practice in the selection and application of characterisation tools to solve process mineralogy problems in a broad range of commodities and processing contexts.
