() Modelling comminution patterns within a pilot

This implies that even in the case of a SAG mill, a significant fraction of the rock comminution occurs in the same manner as in the AG case. The mass of each steel ball used in these experiments was about 1.74 kg, which is significantly less than the average mass of typical rock particles ($3.3 kg) (AG run #1).

Comminution circuits for gold ore processing

2021/1/1 · Since, semi-autogenous grinding (SAG) ball-mill circuits represent the single largest type of gold milling comminution circuits, the chapter focuses on SAG. At mines, where ore has become more competent during the life of the mine (and ore rarely gets softer as the mines go deeper) or at operations, where the SAG mill was undersized during design, operators find themselves limited by a SAG
