NPTEL: Introduction to Mineral Processing

 with  Arun Kumar Majumder

Mineral processing is the first process that most ores undergo after mining in order to provide a more concentrated material for the procedures of extractive metallurgy. Although the primary operations are comminution and concentration, but there are other important operations in a modern mineral processing plant, including sizing, sampling and bulk material handling. This course is intended to provide a detailed understanding of the afore-mentioned operations.
