Wills' Mineral Processing Technology: An Introduction to the Practical Aspects of Ore Treatment and Mineral Recovery has been the definitive reference for the mineral processing industry for over thirty years. This industry standard reference provides practicing engineers and students of mineral processing, metallurgy, and mining with practical information on all the common techniques used in modern processing installations.

Each chapter is dedicated to a major processing procedure-from underlying principles and technologies to the latest developments in strategies and equipment for processing increasingly complex refractory ores. The eighth edition of this classic reference enhances coverage of practical applications via the inclusion of new material focused on meeting the pressing demand for ever greater operational efficiency, while addressing the pivotal challenges of waste disposal and environmental remediation.

Advances in automated mineralogy and analysis, powder metallurgy, high-pressure grinding rolls, hybrid disciplines, and leaching are given dedicated coverage. The new edition also contains more detailed discussions of comminution efficiency, classification, modeling, flocculation, reagents, liquid-solid separations, and beneficiation of phosphate, potash, and industrial materials. Finally, the addition of new examples and solved problems further facilitates the book's pedagogical role in the classroom.

  • Connects fundamentals with practical applications to benefit students and practitioners alike
  • Ensures relevance internationally with new material and updates from renowned authorities in the UK, Australia, and Canada
  • Introduces the latest technologies and incorporates environmental issues to place the subject of mineral processing in a contemporary context, addressing concerns of sustainability and cost effectiveness
  • Provides new case studies, examples, and figures to bring a fresh perspective to the field
