In many lithium ore beneficiation plants it is a common practice to de-slime the ore prior to flotation. De-sprm is typically carried out to remove the −20 µm size fraction to improve selectivity of separation because slimes are detrimental to the flotation circuit Bale and May 1989 . As is the case in many operations de-sprm is
Spodumene is the main lithium bearing mineral which is currently being explored and processed due to its high lithium content and the extensive occurrence of deposits. This literature review focuses on the various techniques used in the beneficiation of lithium minerals from hard rock pegmatite ores.

Lithium ore beneficiation process: mainly occurs in the salt lake lithium resources and granitic pegmatite deposit which accounts for 69% of the world’s lithium reserves of saline lake lithium resources and 87% of the world’s lithium reserve base.
Beneficiation method of lithium ore. 08-28-20; 311 Views; icon 1; Beneficiation method of lithium ore . First let& 39;s understand the main properties of lithium ore: Lithium ore . 1.Light weight: The relative density is 0.54 half lighter than water. 2.Low melting point 179℃ . 3.Lithium metal is very soft and can be cut with a knife.
Beneficiation methods of lithium minerals from hard rock ores were reviewed. . Spodumene is currently the main source of lithium from ores. . Flotation DMS and magnetic separation are the main beneficiation methods. . Similarities between lithium minerals and gangue makes beneficiation compli ed. .
4. lithium ore beneficiation method 1 Hand selection method. The hand selection method is a sorting method based on the difference in color and appearance between lithium minerals and gangue minerals. The selective particle size is generally 10 to 25 mm and the determination of the lower limit of the particle size depends on economic benefits.
Lithium occurs in a number of pegmatitic minerals but due to its solubility in ocean water and is commonly obtained from brines and clays. The total lithium content of seawater is very large and is estimated as 230 billion tonnes. Lithium ore beneficiation process. Low grade Lithium ore isn’t suitable for final appli ions.
