Abstract

The development of suitable beneficiation processes for treating domestic low-grade tungsten ores is a problem now facing the mineral industry. While we are now consuming more tungsten than normally because of the defense program, we are no longer able to import ores from the world's principal source, China. The problem then, is to increase our domestic production so as to ac­quire a greater degree of self-sufficiency.
