Review of Potential Microbial Effects on Flotation

Microorganisms enter the flotation process mainly from intake water and ore material. The diversity and number of microorganisms can vary significantly from mine to mine. In flotation, the conditions including oxygen levels, temperature, and nutrients from ore, intake water, and reagents are often favorable for the microbial growth. The mining industry aims to close the
