11 Miller, Jan D.HydrometallurgyThe science and technology of hydrometallurgy and chemical processing continues to advance both at the laboratory level and in plant practice. In past decades, hydrometallurgy was rather limited in scope and received relatively little attention, being largely a laboratory curiosity. But curiosity i...Hydrometallurgy; Chemical processing; Environment; Laboratory practice; Plant practice1972
12 Miller, Jan D.Screening and classificationThe processing of minerals almost invariably involves the reduction in size of the minerals contained in an ore to effect liberation of disseminated values or, in other instances, to effect increased surface area. Separation of solids according to size usually is undertaken to promote maximum produc...Mesh; Mechanical; Separation1973
13 Miller, Jan D.Structure and composition of commercial copper chelate extractantsThe structure, properties, and composition of commercial chelating-type copper extractants are examined.
