Sarvamangala, H and Natarajan, KA (2009) Microbially induced flotation of galena and quartz from pyrite. In: 18th International Biohydrometallurgy Symposium Bariloche, SEP 13-17, 2009, Bariloche, ARGENTINA, pp. 509-512.Full text not available from this repository.
Selective separation of pyrite from galena and quartz was achieved through microbiologically induced flotation in presence of Bacillus subtilis. B. subtilis functions as a depressant for pyrite while it promotes the flotation of galena and quartz. Bacterial extracellular protein (EP) was isolated and the protein profile of bacterial cells grown in presence and absence of minerals established.
