60 Centuries of Copper: The Flotation Process
The powdered product of grinding the ore is fed into a series of tanks called flotation cells which are filled with a solution containing various oils capable of forming a froth. Air is pumped into each cell, the solution being agitated to bring froth of bubbles to the surface.

The flotation machine is used for the separation of the nonferrous black metal as well as the separation of the non-metallic materials such as the coal fluor
Copper Ore - an overview ScienceDirect Topics
The ore is processed by froth flotation comprising rougher and scavenger cells. The common reagents for copper ore flotation are xanthates as collector, pine oil as frother, sodium cyanide as depressant, and lime to maintain slurry alkalinity. The concentrate in the form of froth and slurry contains 20% copper.
