sensor-based ore sorting. sensor-based ore sorting is the terminology used for sensor-based sorting in the mining industry. it is a coarse physical coarse particle separation technology usually applied in the size range for 25–100 mm 0.98–3.94 in .
gold rush era 1896 1899 during the gold rush some gold was found in the creek beds, but most was in the valley gravels near and in bedrock. the recovery had two steps: bringing the gravel containing gold to the surface and then separating the gold from the gravel using water and gravity separation, as a result access to water was important since it was necessary for the separation process .
magnetic roasting involves controlled roasting of the ore to convert it into a magnetic form, thus enabling easy separation and processing in subsequent steps. for example, controlled reduction of haematite non magnetic fe 2 o 3 to magnetite magnetic fe 3 o 4 .
these processes are gravity separation, flotation, and magnetic separation. gravity separation uses centrifugal forces and specific gravity of ores and gangue to separate them. magnetic separation is used to separate magnetic gangue from the desired ore, or conversely to remove a magnetic target ore from nonmagnetic gangue. dms is also considered a physical separation.
magnetic separation is the process of separating components of mixtures by using magnets to attract magnetic materials. the process that is used for magnetic separation detaches non-magnetic material with those who are magnetic. this technique is useful for not all, but few minerals such as ferromagnetic materials strongly affected by magnetic fields and paramagnetic materials that are less .

liquid–liquid extraction lle , also known as solvent extraction and partitioning, is a method to separate compounds or metal complexes, based on their relative solubilities in two different immiscible liquids, usually water polar and an organic solvent non-polar . there is a net transfer of one or more species from one liquid into another liquid phase, generally from aqueous to organic.
gravity separation is an industrial method of separating two components, either a suspension or dry granular mixture where separating the components with gravity is sufficiently practical. magnetic separation: magnetic separation is a process in which magnetically susceptible material is extracted from a mixture using a magnetic force.
gold is a chemical element with the symbol au from latin: aurum and atomic number 79, making it one of the higher atomic number elements that occur naturally. in its purest form, it is a bright, slightly reddish yellow, dense, soft, malleable, and ductile metal.chemically, gold is a transition metal and a group 11 element.it is one of the least reactive chemical elements and is solid under .
in 1887, john stewart macarthur, working in collaboration with brothers dr robert and dr william forrest for the tennant company in glasgow, scotland, developed the macarthur-forrest process for the extraction of gold ores. by suspending the crushed ore in a cyanide solution, a separation of up to 96 percent pure gold was achieved.
magnetic hand separator for heavy minerals the source of heavy mineral sands is in a hardrock source within the erosional areas of a river which carries its load of sediment into the ocean, where the sediments are caught up in littoral drift or longshore drift .
jig concentrators are devices used mainly in the mining industry for mineral processing, to separate particles within the ore body, based on their specific gravity relative density . the particles would usually be of a similar size, often crushed and screened prior to being fed over the jig bed.
