Engineering Degree Program in China - Mineral Process Engineering

1. Introduction

Mineral Process Engineering is an applied technology subject that studies mineral separation. The purpose is to separate useful minerals from gangue (useless) minerals. For example, iron, copper, lead, zinc ores contain gangue minerals such as quartz, the low-grade raw ore is concentrated to make agglomerated iron ore by gravity concentration, magnetic separation and flotation etc. which prepares for the next step: smelting. In the coal industry, using gravity concentration and flotation to select clean coal and abandon gangue.
