The ﬂotation results showed that conditioning with only sodium sulﬁde Revised 7 February 2018 (Na S) did not successfully allow the smithsonite samples to ﬂoat, whereas treatment with a combination Accepted 12 February 2018 of S(II), Pb(II) and xanthate (with Na S as the sulfurizing reagent, lead ions (Pb(II)) as the activator, and Available online 14 February 2018 xanthate as the collector) improved the ﬂotation of smithsonite, achieving a mass recovery of 95.8%. A combination of analytical techniques, including X-ray diffraction (XRD), atomic force microscopy Keywords: (AFM) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), in conjunction with depth proﬁling, was used to Smithsonite investigate
