08/07/2020· Shaking tables are one of the oldest gravity separators in the mineral processing industry, capable of handling minerals and coal of 0 2mm. Shaking tables are rectangular shaped tables with riffled decks across which a film of water flows. The mechanical drive imparts motion along the long axis of the table, perpendicular to the flow of the water.
The processing of lithium containing minerals such as spodumene, in general, comprises crushing, wet grinding in a ball mill, sizing, gravity concentration, and flotation using a fatty acid as the collector. The major lithium mineral in lithium ore is spodumene, which is considered insoluble in water and dilute acids.

Mineral processing is a major division in the science of Extractive Metallurgy. Extractive metallurgy has been defined as the science and art of extracting metals from their ores, refining them and preparing them for use. Within extractive metallurgy, the major divisions in the order they may most commonly occur are, Mineral Processing , Hydrometallurgy,
