Pyrite - Wikipedia

Pyrite's metallic luster and pale brass-yellow hue give it a superficial resemblance to gold, hence the well-known nickname of fool's gold.The color has also led to the nicknames brass, brazzle, and Brazil, primarily used to refer to pyrite found in coal.. The name pyrite is derived from the Greek πυρίτης λίθος (pyritēs lithos), "stone or mineral which strikes fire", in turn from ...

Answer (1 of 2): That's actually very common. Pyrite (not 'iron pyrite', just 'pyrite') is a very common mineral, and is one of several common minerals that tend to be deposited in the same places and the same time, along with gold (the other most common mineral often associated with gold is quar...

The cobalt project is located 25km south-west of the Broken Hill mining town in New South Wales, Australia. The updated PFS predicts up to 3,600 tonnes per annum (tpa) of cobalt production over an estimated mine life of 17 years. The preproduction capital expenditure on the project is estimated to be approximate £312m (A$560m).

Rcovery of gold in pyritic ores - Mine Engineer.Com

Gravity concentration tends to recover the pyrite with the gold, and only removes the lighter minerals, such as quartz, from the ore. The most difficult particles to gravity concentrate are the fines, and 75 microns to 2 microns are definitely very fine. So, even if the ore were ground to 2 microns, it may not be recoverable using current ...
