### AMIT 135: Lesson 6 Grinding Circuit Mining Mill Operator

AG/SAG mills can accomplish the same size reduction work as two or three stages of crushing and screening, a rod mill, and some or all of the work of a ball mill. Because of the range of mill sizes available, AG/SAG milling can often be accomplished with fewer lines than in a conventional rod mill/ball mill circuit. A diagram of types of AG/SAG mills

In a ball mill circuit, the "output" can be defined as the production rate of fines of the circuit. As for any output, ball mill circuit output is a function of both its inputs and efficiencies. There are two "inputs" to a ball mill circuit: the ore fed to the circuit and the power delivered by the grinding mill. A ball mill circuit has two "efficiencies": that of the ball mill grinding

The SAG mill trommel undersize is combined with the ball mills’ discharge and pumped to two parallel packs (clusters) of twelve 660 mm diameter cyclones. The cyclone underflow from each line reports to a ball mill, while the cyclone overflow is directed to the flotation circuit. The designed ball milling circuit product is 80% passing 150 µm.

If a ball mill circuit were to be fed 2 distributions, each with same P80 but with the open and closed circuit gradients in Figure 1, the closed circuit distribution would require more energy to grind to the final P80. How much more energy is required is difficult to determine. However, for the purposes of this approach it has been assumed that the additional specific energy for ball milling

Closed ball mill cyclone circuits are industry standard and it is recognised that classification efficiency and circulating load both have a major effect on the efficiency of closed circuit grinding. The individual effect of circulating load and classification efficiency is difficult to quantify in practice as these two parameters are inherently interrelated. Even though mill capacity
