Comminution circuits for gold ore processing - …

01.01.2005· 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 ...

Optimizing your SAG mill operation - International Mining

21.03.2007· The mill discharge from these mills consists of slurry, which goes to the ball mills for further grinding, and coarse pebbles/rocks, which are crushed and sent back to the mill. To maximize the capacity of these circuits, the general practice is to use grates with pebble ports (reaching 100 mm) instead of normal grate openings to increase the pebble removal. In addition, operating mills …
