What are the Four Types of Mineral Processing?
Further research led Andrew to the Wikipedia page for mineral processing which states, “Mineral processing can involve four general types of unit operation: comminution – particle size reduction; sizing – separation of particle sizes by screening or classification; concentration by taking advantage of physical and surface chemical properties; and dewatering – solid/liquid separation”
