Rare Earth Flotation Fundamentals: A Review

As the primary rare earth mineral at two of the world’s largest rare earth mines (Mountain Pass, CA and Bayan Obo, China) bastnasite has been the main focus of rare earth flotation research for some time. During this time, a variety of collectors for the flotation of rare earths bastnasite have been investigated including: fatty acids, various hydroxamates, dicarboxylic acids, and phosphoric acids (Jordens et al.
