Relative costs and risks associated with using an empirical calculation based on Bond Work Index compared to batch and continuous pilot-scale testwork are tabulated and conclusions drawn on the evidence of examples.
A method and a system are disclosed for maintaining optimum throughput in a grinding circuit of the type in which fresh ore is fed to a rod mill and the ground ore from the rod mill, together with the ground ore from a ball mill operated in a reversed circuit, are combined in a pump box and pumped to a cluster of hydrocyclone classifiers.
A standard crushing and grinding circuit is shown in Figure 1. It is commonly referred to as a SABC circuit, for Semi-Autogenous Ball mill Crusher (SABC). This circuit shows a semi-autogenous grinding (SAG)/ball mill circuit where both grinding mills are in closed circuit, with the SAG mill closed with a crusher to control the amount of ''critical size'' material in the circuit.
The product particle size exiting the grinding circuit (cyclone overflow) contains 80% passing 75 µm material. Crushed ore, reclaimed from the stockpile, is conveyed to the SAG mill feed chute. Process water is added to the SAG mill feed chute, to control the in-mill pulp density.

Should a grinding media shortage arise, know that you have options and that you can tailor your comminution circuit operation. To learn out more about operating milling circuits with reduced or no grinding media (as AG-ball mills or single-stage AG mills), contact Grant Ballantyne, Rajiv Chandramohan or Matt Pyle .
grinding is one such process employed at several mining operations in Australia including Mount Isa Mines Limited in Australia. Mount Isa Mines is a business unit of MIM Holdings Limited. MIM is an Australian-based international mining and mineral processing
· For many grinding strategies, particle size at the cyclone overflow is a critical feedback variable for determining the circuit''s state and efficiency. For downstream processing, valuable minerals and metals recovery and the usage of the energy and reagents, are often highly dependent on the feed particle size distribution as shown in Figure 1.
