Abstract : The effect of a low intensity magnetic field on water as a flotation medium with the enrichment of coal and dressing of copper sulfied ore is studied. The dependence of the effect of a magnetic field on the intensity has a periodic nature. Hypothesis about the mechanism for the action of a magnetic field with flotation is expressed. The imposition of an external magnetic field disturbs the energy state of water, which leads to a change in intermolecular interaction, stability of hydrogen bonds, deterioration in the wettability of rigid surfaces, and a change in the technological indices of flotation enrichment.
