Grinding and Sizing Ore is stockpiled at the mill before being fed into a semiautogenous grinding (SAG) mill with lime, water and steel balls. The larger particles from this mill are returned to the SAG mill for more grinding. The finer particles receive more grinding in a ball mill, and are size classified to give a final product of 80% <70 ...

below 0.25" are sent to the grinding section for further size reduction. The screen deck oversize, consisting of particles over 0.25", is recycled back to SC-101. The Ball Mill, B-101, grinds the 0.25" ore until it is in the range of 160 microns. The ore leaving the ball mill is sent to six hydrocyclones that separate the larger particles

involves feeding rock particles and water into the grinding mill containing a fraction of steel balls usually below 10% and running at a fraction of its critical speed. The slurry and ball charge adheres to the walls of the mill before cascading off at a given angle causing impact and fragmenting the ore (Nunez F, 2011).

The amount of iron oxide copper gold ore is about 10 million to 4 billion tons. IOCG ore contains copper with a grade of 0.2% to 5% and gold with a content of 0.1 to 1.41 grams per ton. Iron oxide copper gold ore tends to be conical on the edge of granite, or appears as long banded breccia or massive iron oxide ore in faults or shears.

An investigation was conducted to determine the effect of the ball diameter sizes on milling operation. A laboratory size ball mill was used with ball media of sizes 10 mm, 20 mm and 30 mm respectively. Quartz was the material used to perform the experiment and was arranged into 3 mono-sizes namely -8 mm +5.6 mm, -4 mm +2.8 mm and-2

The breakage and liberation of minerals are the key to fluidized mining for minerals. In the ball milling process, steel balls function as not only a grinding action implementer but also energy carrier to determine the breakage behavior of ores and the production capacity of the mill.
