How to effectively carry out mineral sorting while reducing environmental pollution and waste of resources is a problem that is constantly explored by researchers engaged in mineral sorting. Centrifugal reselection is one of the main and important technologies of mineral sorting. This paper focuses on the research status and development trend of centrifugal reselection technology in the field of minerals at home and abroad, points out the research direction of centrifugal reselection technology, and provides a reference for the further research and application of centrifugal reselection technology in the field of minerals.
