"In the pages of this paper an attempt is made to describe present methods of concentration and flotation of the oxidized ores of lead. The method employed is the presentation of the actual o operation of several mills which have been treating such ores during 1926 and 1927.
The plants described are representative operations and form some criteria for the performance of such ores under different conditions. In addition to those concentrators which are described, there are perhaps several small installations which are recovering lead from old mine dumps and tailings piles. It is difficult and almost impossible to obtain any reliable information concerning them.
Actual operating figures are presented in this paper only when they are known to be reliable and to represent work over a suitable period of time"--Introduction, page 5.
