In India’s East Godavari district’s Burugubanda-Tapaskonda districts, graphite-tungsten mineralization may be found in graphite schists associated with khondalites. The zones of tungsten mineralization in conjunction with the graphite ore bodies were clearly defined by geochemical and geophysical exploration methods, followed by soil and stream sediment analysis. Folin-Ciocalteu reagent and 0.1-0.5 percent WO3 are the fixed carbon and tungsten contents, respectively. Low-grade graphite resources and tungsten materials were submitted to processing experiments using various procedures in order to achieve the highest possible percentage of recovery. The recovered product contains 60-80 percent Folin-Ciocalteu reagent and 60-65 percent WO3. Although the experimental procedure did not provide satisfying results, it may be used/applied to acquire an unknown product as a pre-concentrate that can then be exposed to other relevant processes to produce a better concentrate.
