Pyrite Flotation - Metallurgist Mineral Processing Engineer

Can you list the factors affects the floatability of pyrite from refractory low grade ore. I used a Wemco lab flotation cell and aimed on analysing factors like collector dosages (PAX), Activator (Copper sulphate),MIBC , pH and others like pulp density and particle size (70 and 150 microns) .However how these factors affect the floatability of the pyrites from low grade refractory ore.
