· Potassium ethyl xanthate, as the mining reagent, is the weakest xanthate , but PEX is very selective given the correct chemical conditions.
· PEX is best for the recovery of sulfides that are relatively hydrophobic like galena.
· Potassium ethyl xanthate (PEX) can recover all sulfides but because of its weak nature, the flotation kinetics are very slow.
