improving the efficiency of a sag mill treating gold ores

SAG Mill Optimisation and Increasing Throughput at the Phu

Aug 31, 2018· The Phu Kham Operation has recently undergone a series of process improvements to treat the anticipated competent ores scheduled for 2017 and 2018. The operation’s comminution circuit, which comprises a semiautogenous (SAG) mill and two ball mills, each with 13 megawatts (MW) of installed power, was expected to be SAG mill limited when

However, the SAG route is more power-intensive and, for very hard ores, comes with some process risk in predicting performance. More recently, a hybrid solution has become available in the form of high pressure grinding rolls (HPGRs), which can replace the third stage of crushing and also the SAG mill.

Throughput optimisation in milling circuits

SAG Mill Power. SAG milling can be optimised to achieve maximum breakage and throughput (or any other number of objectives). The relationships between the key variables are highly non-linear and shift as the ore hardness, steel load and liner conditions change.

Autogenous and Semi-Autogenous Mills ScienceDirect

Jan 01, 2016· The SAG mills have been mostly used for milling hard gold and copper ores with quartz, ultramafic or green stone as host rocks. The Bond work index of these ores ranges between 12 and 14 kWh/t. Subsequently, SAG mill application has been extended to softer ores, such as bauxite and clayey hard-capped gold ores.

Addition of pebbles to a ball-mill to improve grinding

Apr 01, 2017· The grinding circuit used for processing of gold, platinum and base metal ores typically consists of SAG primary mills, followed by ball-mills. The power drawn by the ball-mills is about the same as that of the SAG mill for high capacity milling circuits. Table 1 is an example of data for this type of circuit.

BENCHMARKING ENERGY EFFICIENCY A CASE STUDY AT

The main sulfide grinding circuit is comprised of three grinding mills. Reclaimed crushed ore is fed to the SAG mill and water is added. The SAG mill (ML01) is configured to break the larger rock to a product size of approximately 80% passing 2 to 4 mm. SAG mill product gravitates to a hydrocyclone feed pump hopper and further water is added.

Gold Processing Methods & Gold Ore Extraction

Of all the methods of extracting gold & processing it from its ore, I used a few to evaluate two principal flowsheets in this case study. The flowsheets utilized operations that involved flotation, cyanidation and gravity concentration. Tests that mirror each of these unit operations were utilized to evaluate the principal flowsheets. This page offers a comparative review of gold recovery

Jan 01, 2007· "Deteriorating ore grade and high demand of metals has tremendously influenced the unit capacity of SAG mills. Pebble circuits have been added to the existing SAG circuits to increase their unit capacity. To make the pebble circuits justifiable, the grate openings are increased almost to 4.5 inches to draw large quantity of pebbles.

With 37 years of experience, the majority of which has been spent operating, optimising and designing grinding circuits. The author is known for implementing the first reduced row SAG mill liner design and combining it with the use of 152mm grinding balls to improve throughput rate in the absence of a pebble crushing circuit, which took place 20 years ago.

Autogenous and Semi-Autogenous Mills FLSmidth

SAG and AG Mills operate by lifting ore/grinding media and dropping it on the operating bed of the mill charge. High impacts from lifting ore and media promote impact breakage which is the primary mechanism for size reduction in the mill. Via the use of sophisticated instruments and software, we closely monitor the mill impact location to boost

Potential applications of ore pre-concentration using high

Four copper-gold ore samples were tested to demonstrate the viability of this technique. Potential applications of the HVP pre-concentration technique to treat AG/SAG mill pebbles and AG/SAG mill feed are discussed. An HVP ore pre-concentration characterisation diagram is proposed to assess the performance of a given ore.

Gold extraction QueensMineDesignWiki

Among free-milling gold ores placer gold is a special case, as there is no pre-treatment required for gold extraction. Gold can be extracted from placer ores using physical separation techniques, particularly through gravity treatment. In modern practice, concentrators use centrifugal force in order to liberate finer gold particles.
