The improbable process of flotation transformed the non-ferrous mining industry-100 years ago, no one could have predicted that floating highly specific gravity particles on water would become one of the world's greatest technologies.

This book chronicles the early days of flotation and the evolution of this technology, as well as the engineers, managers, and financiers who supported flotation experimentation and development. Flotation practitioners will enjoy learning about the history of flotation machines, the ingenuity applied to this process, and the competitive tensions between manufacturers.

History of Flotation includes chapters on Coal Flotation, Early Flotation Theory, and Technological Research.
