Primarily, the purpose of this study is to separate stibiconite from associated gangue minerals. The ore containing antimony, as an oxide stibiconite, occurs in Mexico and its benefication would be an advantage to the mineral resources of that country. While the deposit from which this ore is derived is American owned, the resource is presently non-economic. A concentrate must be derived of suitable grade for its use in a smelting operation and from which metallic antimony would be produced.
