In this study, the adsorption of surfactant onto the magensite rock and the oil agglomeration of this mineral in aqueous suspension were investigated. The various concentration ratios of cationic and anionic surfactant were used. The results were evaluated by the recovery of carbonates in agglomerates. It was found that the process selectivity was highly dependent on the surfactants concentration ratio, pH, and the amount of salt added. The best separation of quartz from magnesite rock was observed at pH 9. The addition of larger quantity of sodium oleate (15.2 mg/gsolid) led to the increase of carbonates content in agglomerates up to 32.4%. However, the largest carbonates recovery was in the presence of 6.0 mg/gsolid of NaOl.
