    "One key trend is to use a mix of mechanical cells and flotation columns with columns as the final cleaner stage, because they deliver increased recovery and higher grades in this role," he said. Over the past few years, we've seen mechanical cells used for rougher and scavenger duties, and generally the first cleaner stage as well.
