The association of gold with iron sulphide gangue in flotation tailings is often in the form of total or partial encapsulation of fine gold grains as identified in the previous study . The encapsulation impedes access of cyanide to gold for dissolution reducing the effectiveness of subsequent CIL circuits in copper–gold plants.

The froth is removed from the top of the cell creating concentrated gold while the flotation tailings at the bottom of the tank are disposed of. Thanks to froth flotation miners and refiners are able to extract quality minerals from ore at lower grades than has been previously possible.
The flotation of fresh tailings from a copper–gold site in this 3PC cell recovered more than 40% of the industrial copper losses and 25% of the gold losses Valderrama et al. 2011 . Valderrama and Rubio 2008 compared the conventional column with the 3PC cell to treat gold tailings assisted by high intensity conditioning HIC .
In Sivas-Divriǧi Iron Ore Concentrator 600000 tons of tailings is discarded annually. There are already one million tons of tailings deposited in the ponds from the previous production activities.
