the SAG mill. This work will look at the effect of removing fine material in the cyclone underflow through fine screening to reduce the re-circulating load. Possible installation of a ball mill to treat the cyclone underflow on milled tonnage is also explored. Freda Rebecca consists of an underground mine and a processing plant.

Grinding is the process of achieving particle size reduction through attrition and compressive forces at the granular level. The grinding media in a ball mill is typically steel or ceramic balls of varying sizes, depending on the feed size, work index of the ore and the size reduction and distribution required in the discharge.

Inside these Sag/Ball mill are big steel balls that grind ore via an impact process. In simple terms, these hard metal steel balls get to the top of the rotating chamber and fall down crushing the ore being processed. It grinds it up into a compound to make processing easier. You'll find a similar process in sugar cane mills. These steel balls ...
