ADVANCES IN MAGNETIC SEPARATION OF ORES Magnetic separation of iron ores is one of the fastest growing segments of the miner beneficiation industry. The tonnage of taconite ores processed annually by magnetic separation toill, in a few years, reach 100 million. by L. A. ROE M agnetic separation occupies an attractive posi
Magnetic separation is an old technique for the concentration of iron ores and for the removal of tramp iron. Since 1849, a number of patents on magnetic separation have been issued in USA, and texts of some of the patents before 1910 describe a variety of magnetic separators for mineral processing.
