Once the metal values are leached from the ore and are in solution, the tailings must be evaluated. A variety of methods are used to separate the liquid from the solid. These include settling, centrifuging, filtration and screening.of the optimum method can dramatically affect processing costs.
At McClelland Laboratories we can manage all of the testing required to optimize the design of you solid-liquid separation process to ensure optimum processing. From basic settling and desliming tests you can be assured that the right process will determined for your specific ores.
