The semiautogenous grinding circuit at the Utah Mines Ltd., Island Copper operation, located on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, is described. Since startup of the operation in 1971, grinding circuit throughput has been progressively increased from the initial design rate of 30 000 (33,000) to the current average 45 000 t/d (49,600 stpd) of porphyry copper ore. Key developments and
Modelling and simulation of the grinding circuit in madneuli copper concentrator 233 Work indices of the samples were determined by using standard Bond Work index test. The results are given in Table 1. Table 1. Bond work indices of the different ore types in Madneuli deposit. Plant feed Oxidised ore Sulphide ore Complex ore
May 21, 2017 Grinding and Flotation. Fine ore at minus 19mm ( ”) sizing is fed at a controlled rate into the open-circuit 2600mm x 3960mm (8’-6 x 13’-0) Hardinge rod mill at an average feed rate of 2,106 STPD or 87.75 STRH. Rod mill discharge at a nominal size of minus 16 mesh and a pulp density of 75 percent solids combines with ball mill discharge
Jun 10, 2015 The Derrick Stack Sizer machine is used to replace hydro-cyclones in a closed grinding circuit. In one instance, four 5-deck Stack Sizer screens processing 520 tons of copper ore per hour replaced hydro-cyclones enabling the concentrator to experience increased capacity throughput of 17%, a reduced circulating load from 200% to 100%, less power
Figure 1 - Overview grinding circuit The Copper Mountain SAG mill is 10363 mm [34 feet] in diameter and 6096 mm [20 feet] long. It is a grate discharge mill with an inside diameter of 10363 mm [34 feet] and a grinding length of 5334 mm [17.5 feet]. The mill is driven by two 8,500 horsepower ABB motors. Figure 2 - The 34’ x 20’ SAG mill
Several large tonnage copper porphyry plants in Chile use an open-circuit SAG configuration where the pebble crusher product is directed to the ball mills (SABC-B circuit). The original grinding circuit at Los Bronces is an example: the pebbles generated in the two SAG mills are crushed in a satellite pebble crushing plant, and then are
In the figure below, the range of expected throughput for different ore types are plotted for a fixed grinding circuit; each ore type can process between 80% and 120% of the design throughput. An alternate power model was used to estimate mill throughput using the same mill sizes

The Mount Isa Copper Concentrator grinding circuit currently consists of two 32’ x 16’ semi-autogenous (SAG) mills, each powered by two 3.2 MW motors, followed by two 16’6” x 20’ ball
Radiometric Separation in Grinding Circuit of Copper–Nickel Ore Processing. Lumpy ore after semi-autogenous milling in Copper–Nickel ore processing at the Talnakh factory is studied. The lumpy ore is mainly presented by sizes −80+40 and −40+20 mm. The X-ray radiometric separation tests of the lumpy ore prove their efficiency in
Grinding Process Grinding is a surface finishing operation where very thin layer of material is removed in the form of dust particles. Thickness of material removed is in range of 0.25 to 0.50 mm. Tool used is a abrasive wheel Grinding machine is a power operated machine tool where, the work piece is fed
Apr 21, 2020 Apr 21, 2020 Lumpy ore after semi-autogenous milling in Copper–Nickel ore processing at the Talnakh factory is studied. The lumpy ore is mainly presented by sizes −80+40 and −40+20 mm. The X-ray radiometric separation tests of the lumpy ore prove their efficiency in production of concentrate and tailings. The strength characteristics and the Bond work index of the concentrate are determined
This circuit had problems of over-grinding the galena-bearing minerals as the cyclones returned the smaller but heavier galena particles and coarser but lighter gangue particles to the underflow for further grinding. The effect of this phenomenon is illustrated in Figure 5. Figure 4: Closed-Circuit Tower Mill for Treating Bulk Lead/Zinc Concentrate
The concentration of copper in a typical cyclone overflow is highest in the 43 x 10 micron fraction, which corresponds to the highest mineral recoveries in the rougher flotation cells. Cyclones in a grinding circuit shape the size distribution of the valuable minerals so a large proportion falls within the range associated with high flotation
