AMIT 135: Lesson 7 Ball Mills & Circuits – Mining Mill ...

Number, size and mass of each ball size depends on mill load and whether or not the media is being added as the initial charge. For the initial chargin of a mill, Coghill and DeVaney (1937) defined the ball size as a function of the top size of the feed, i.e., d↓V = 0.40 K√F dB = ball size (cm) F = feed size (cm)

Gold extraction - QueensMineDesignWiki

The primary reason for the significant comminution circuits is because in gold mining the grades are notably low and thus excessive waste material is present, resulting in high mill feed rates. If the ore rock is highly fractured and/or brittle, it is likely that an AG mill be the most economical option in lieu of a SAG mill.

The constant K 2 is also dependent on ore type and ranged from 1.4 to 1.5. A regression of Magdalinovic's data including the feed 80% passing size gives an average value of 1.485 for K 2.If we extend this relationship to any sample of screened material then this gives an approximate estimate of the 80% passing size as 67.3% of the top size.

Comminution - Wikipedia

Comminution is the reduction of solid materials from one average particle size to a smaller average particle size, by crushing, grinding, cutting, vibrating, or other processes. In geology, it occurs naturally during faulting in the upper part of the Earth's crust. In industry, it is an important unit operation in mineral processing, ceramics, electronics, and other fields, accomplished with ...

Highlights Ore effects on the product shape were studied in order to monitor breakage events in SAG mill. The quantitative shape properties were fitted well to the 3-parameter lognormal distribution. An increase in ore strength corresponds to a decrease in product size, angularity and elongation. By increasing ore hardness, the main breakage event changes from impact to attrition and abrasion ...
