The aim of this project was to gain an insight into how the properties of particles entering the froth affect the performance of the froth phase. In platinum group mineral (PGM) flotation, gangue minerals are known to have a stabilizing effect on the froth phase; in this project, their hydrophobicity was changed by the addition of depressant and the performance of the froth phase was measured in terms of froth recovery.
