Abstract

Possible cavitation disintegration of polymineral microparticles placed into a liquid as a result of interaction of particles with collapsed cavitation bubbles is shown for the minerals most abundant in gold ore. The bubbles are generated by shock loading of the liquid heated to the boiling temperature. The possibility of cavitation separation of nano-and microscale monomineral fractions from polymineral microparticles is demonstrated.
