ADVANTAGES OF PLATINUM. Platinum’s cool white sheen is perfect for accentuating the sparkle and brilliance of diamonds as it doesn't cause any colour to be reflected in the stone. Platinum is extremely durable and strong making it ideal for jewellery that’s worn on a daily basis. It’s highly resistant to stress and withstands both extreme heat and extreme cold, which means platinum ...

OVERVIEW OF PGM PROCESSING - Anglo American Platinum

The Bushveld Complex includes three distinct mineral-bearing reefs: • The Merensky Reef, the source of most historical and current SA production, contains relatively higher PGM grades and ratios of Platinum (vs Palladium) • The UG2 Reef, a chromite-rich reef, is more consistent, but lacks Merensky’s high yield of Gold, Copper and Nickel byproducts. In the last decade, PGM miners recover ...

Mineral processing - Wikipedia

Mineral processing can involve four general types of unit operation: comminution – particle size reduction; sizing – separation of particle sizes by screening or classification; concentration by taking advantage of physical and surface chemical properties; and dewatering – solid/liquid separation. In all of these processes, the most important considerations are the economics of the ...
