2019-10-1  Typically, this concentrate contains a mixture of gold along with other valuable elements found in sulfide minerals such as copper, lead, zinc, etc. The bulk concentrate is most often filtered and sold to a smelter for further refining. In some cases, the flotation concentrates are processed further to produce bullion - this will be discussed in the next section.
