This thesis has to do with the selective flotation of the manganese oxide minerals in an ore from Charco Redondo Mine, Oriente Province, Cuba. Since a sound knowledge of the nature of the emulsion-induced flotation process of these minerals does not exist, experimental research constitutes the most valuable resource for determining the extent to which different reagents influence the process. Moreover, a correlation of experimental results with the chemical and physical properties of the minerals and reagents can lead to the improvement of existing theories regarding the mechanism of a process.
