Open Circuit Primary Ball Mill + Closed Circuit Parallel Secondary Ball Mills with Cyclone Now for our fourth and final flow sheet. This is one that has been-designed for exceptionally hard ore and/or a grind that must be very fine. This time the ore is conveyed to the first mill, mixed with water and ground.
Grinding circuits are fed at a controlled rate from the stockpile or bins holding the crusher plant product. There may be a number of grinding circuits in parallel, each circuit taking a definite fraction of the feed. An example is the Highland Valley Cu/Mo plant …
The grinding circuit is a primary and indispensable unit of a mineral processing plant. The product from a grinding circuit affects the recovery rate of minerals in subsequent downstream processes and governs the amount of concentrate produced. Because of the huge amount of energy required during the grinding operation, they contribute to a ...

Figure 2 – Single-stage SAG Mill Grinding Circuit Flowsheet . The circuit feedrate of 125 tph to 150 tph was primary crushed to an F80 size of between 105 mm and 120 mm and the SAG mill slowed down and charged with a 7% (by volume, v/v) load of 125 mm balls. The smaller diameter CAVEX 400 cyclones produced an overflow P80 size of 90 µm to ...
The primary grinding circuit will use a 24' x 15.75' sized SAG mill, followed by a 16.5' × 28.5' secondary ball mill. Both mills will have a 4 MW … Mill – Goldcorp Primary & Secondary Crushing Typical Grinding Circuit Leach & CIP Circuit Tailings & Dam Construction.

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 included the bench-marking and optimization of the SABC comminution circuit, focusing on the primary (SAG mill) and secondary (ball mill) grinding mills, and estimating the outcomes ...
Mill. Mill processing unit operations include a gyratory crusher and coarse ore stockpile with feeders, a grinding circuit, a gravity recovery circuit, a leaching circuit, a carbon-in-leach (CIL) circuit, a carbon stripping circuit and a refinery as shown in the mill flow sheet. Hard and transition rock is reduced in size through a primary ...
These feed and product size parameters are generally the primary drivers in the selection of the grinding circuit, followed closely by Specific Power Consumption, capital cost and operating cost. It is very important that the key criteria are clearly defined at the outset of the grinding circuit selection and design process.
10 L bulk samples from specific circuit points were sourced from three Australian flotation operations, processing copper ore (concentrator 1), zinc/lead ore (concentrator 2) and gold ore (concentrator 3), believing that it would be a simple matter of using a magnet to remove the grinding media debris for examination ().The sampling method involved grab samples of …
The purpose of the primary crusher is to reduce the ROM ore to a size amenable for feeding the secondary crusher or the SAG mill grinding circuit. The ratio of reduction through a primary crusher can be up to about 8:1. Feed: ROM up to 1.5 m. Product: -300mm (for transport) to -200mm (for SAG mill) Feed Rate:
The grinding circuit consists of a conventional SAB circuit with a 7.93m x 3.73 m 3,356 kW SAG mill and a 5.49 m x 8.84 m 4,474 kW ball mill in closed circuit with 6 hydrocyclones (4 operating and 2 on standby). SAG mill throughput typically ranges from 473 - 515 tph depending on the ore type being processed.
