The Importance of Primary Crushing in Mill Feed Size ...

Monitoring the mill feed size WipFrag results showed a remarkable correlation between the % fines and mill tonnage for all grinding lines. The effect of feed size on one of our autogenous mills is shown in Figure 3 page I-193. Even short term changes in % fines (e.g. peak in middle of graph) results in swings in mill tonnage under power draw ...

economies of SAG/FAG mills. Figure 2 compares blast energy to electrical consumption in the SAG mill. The concern at this operation was that excessive blast energy was depleting the source of media rock. Although that problem has been documented for some types of ore; excessive blast energy does not appear to be the culprit in this case.

Blasting design for increased SAG mill productivity ...

SAG mill throughput is often a bottleneck to increasing plant productivity. Improved size distribution control in the mill feed can be used to increase mill production. This can be accomplished by controlling blast fragmentation as a function of energy input and rock characteristics. Such an approach requires the integration of rock fragmentation and …

Rock Fragmentation by Blasting - Orica Mining Services

The fragmentation of rock is fundamental to mining. It is the first preparatory stage in the extraction process – making rock small enough and loose enough to be efficiently excavated. But this simple statement underestimates how important this activity is for the whole mining operation. By optimising rock fragmentation by blasting, you can ...

SAG mills is less than 5%. To give some context, an example metal mine might spend $5.00/t of ore on electricity; an equivalent amount on grinding media in the SAG circuit alone; but only $0.30/t of broken ore on explosives at the drill and blast stage. Yet, the blasting process is a much more energy efficient method of fragmenting rock.
