Gold Leaching Reagent Compared to Cyanide in Gold Mining Plant. . Xanthate, as the flotation collector with strong collection effect, is mainly used to enhance the hydrophobicity of the mineral surface to meet the requirements of flotation. Xanthate is commonly used in the flotation .1. Background. The application of flotation on a reasonable scale within the gold-mining industry commenced in the early 1930s following the introduction of water-soluble flotation collectors (specifically xanthates and dithiophosphate collectors) that allowed differential flotation of sulfide minerals (Weinig and Carpenter, 1937, Rabone, 1939, Richards and Locke, 1940, Taggart, 1945).
