the ug2 reef of the bushveld igneous complex in south africa is a valuable source of platinum group metals (pgms) that is beneficiated by flotation. chromite is one of the main gangue consituents of ug2 ore and it is essential that the amount of chromite reporting to the concentrate during flotation be minimised since it is detrimental to the.the characterisation of a two stage flotation circuit,chromite ore a thesis submitted to the b eng (chemical engineering) (potchefstroom) department of chemical engineering university of cape town rondebosch 7700 south africa august 1996 . the copyright of this thesis vests in the author. no 126.96.36.199 chromite 4.2.2 batch flotation results 188.8.131.52 pgm recoveries 184.108.40.206 chromite recoveries.flotation of chromite as pre-treatment of olivine before,the latter technique has been developed in continuous flotation columns or in other pilot or industrial devices for processing of ug2 ore in south africa [5 z. ekmekçi, d.j. bradshaw, s.a. allison, and p.j. harris, 'effects of frother type and froth height on the flotation behavior of chromite in ug2 ore', miner..mineralogical and geochemical variations in the ug2 reef,the booysendal ug2 reef is dominated by a pge-sulphide assemblage whereas zondereinde is dominated by pge-alloys. the mineralogical and geochemical characteristics further described in this study can be utilised to refine the milling regime and flotation
southern africa produces more than three-quarters of the high levels of chromite, unless blended with merensky or platreef concentrates. ug2 or high chrome containing flotation testwork showed that a ug2 concentrate could be produced having a pgm grade of around 430 g/t, at.the geological occurrence, mineralogy, and processing by,flotation of platinum group minerals (pgms) in south africa and russia in south africa, the pgm-bearing ores are found in the bushveld complex, which ug2 consists predominantly of chromite with lesser silicate minerals (5–30% pyroxene and 1–10% plagioclase). other minerals present in minor concentrations can include silicates,.modular rcs for chromite tailings beneficiation,a typical ug2-platinum group metals (pgm) mine, explains hazell, uses flotation cells to recover pgm concentrate. “the remaining material contains waste and chromites,” he tells mechchem africa. “depending on the level of entrainment in the flotation process, chromite contaminant can still be in with the pgm concentrate when the product.modular rcs for chromite tailings beneficiation,producers for the recovery of chromite. a typical ug2-platinum group metals (pgm) mine, explains hazell, uses flotation cells to recover pgm concentrate. “the remaining material contains waste and chro-mites,” he tells mechchem africa. “depending on the level of entrainment in the flotation process, chromite contaminant can still be in
during the beneficiation of chromite hosted pge’s by froth flotation, chromite represents the principal gangue mineral. this is particularly true for the ug2 main seam. an excess of more than 3% in mass of chromite in the pgm concentrate is known to result in significant problems in the downstream processing and extraction of pges..feasibility study on physical beneficiation of low-grade,data on ug2 samples was generated by means of mla technique. the ug2 samples are flotation tailings from the northam platinum limited plant operations in south africa. complete recovery of pgms which are locked in silicates, native minerals and chromite matrix is difficult. therefore, most of the pgms in flotation tailings are attached or enclosed.technical and industrial developments in ferro alloys in,chromite and fecr growth trends over past 40 years growth of rsa chromite fecr production from 1970s to 2015 including growth in china, india and kazakhstan. historical and future trends in chrome ore supply from rsa (ug2 contribution) and demand decline in fecr production in europe, japan and.characterisation of south african chromite middle group seams,produced with ug2 or metallurgicalgrade south african chromite: a case study,” 2015.  s.d.opoubou-lando, “mineralogical characterisation of chromite in the ug2 reef from waterval mine , western bushveld : implications for minerals processing,” cape town, 2010.
a ug2 chromite concentrate trade was done on january 10 at $200/mt cif china for over 20,000 mt, end january-february loading from south africa, a major ug2 producer said. s&p global platts does not assess chromite prices.

lonmin platinum’s marikana mine is located on the western limb of the bushveld complex to the east of rustenburg. platinum group elements (pge) occur in, and are mined from, a variety of facies types of the merensky reef, and the ug2. for the purpose of the present study, three facies types of merensky reef samples and one sample of ug2 were.chromite extraction in south africa,after the extraction of the pgms, the fine, upgraded ug2 ore due to the availability of mostly fine chromite ores in south africa (par 3.1), an agglomeration step. in south africa, chromite seams are generally 1 to 2 meters thick with mainly initial open pit extraction easier and likely more cost-effective..the impact of platinum production from ug2 ore on,south africa’s bic chromite seams are relatively low grade with cr/fe ratios of typically 1.7 or less. early producers exploited reserves with cr/fe ratios of >3, but following ug2 chromite use for ferrochrome production. growth in the south african industry has been considerable since the end of.lateral variations in the platinum-group element content,lateral variations in the platinum-group element content and mineralogy of the ug2 chromitite layer, bushveld complex c.j. penberthy mineralogy division, mintek, private bag x3015, randburg, 2125 republic of south africa e-mail: [email protected] r.k.w. merkle
origin of ug2 chromitite. the fact that none of the models considered above adequately accounts for the observed rock sequence leads us to the model of eales ( 2000 ), which holds that the chromitites formed by accumulation of chromite from crystal-charged magmas injected into the bushveld chamber..origin of the ug2 chromitite layer, bushveld complex,origin of the ug2 chromitite layer, bushveld complex this forces supersaturation of the mixture in chromite, which upon crystallization accumulates on the magma chamber floor to form a nearly monomineralic layer. to evaluate this and other genetic bushveld complex in south africa and the entire bushveld complex..ug2 chromite bulletin,the availability of ug2 chrome ore has upset the balance in the south african and global chrome ore market. as ug2 chrome ore mining is essentially regarded as ‘free revenue,’ platinum producers were not as price sensitive as a traditional chrome ore exporter which provided ug2 producers with both a price and cost advantage over traditional
