For the vast majority of ounces of gold produced, comminution costs in the form of power, grinding media, and liners represent the single largest cost category of milling. Since, semi-autogenous grinding SAG ball-mill circuits represent the single largest type of gold milling comminution circuits, the chapter focuses on SAG.

In gold grinding circuits much of the free gold can lie in the finer size fractions and is amenable to concentration using enhanced gravity. Treating only a fraction of cyclone underflow means that much of the free gold will bypass the gravity concentration circuit and report straight to cyclone overflow.
andor coated gold particles in flotation circuits even at high collector dosages was explained by Bulatovic 1997. In addition, rod-shaped and rolled gold entities were observed. This is also an evidence of high residence time in the grinding circuit. The tarnished particle surfaces was attributed to the high silver content of the ore since

total gold recovery in grinding circuits has been outlined in a significant number of papers to date. However, the use of batch centrifugal concentrators BCC as an industry standard to extract gold has limited the potential for maximising gravity recoveries - particularly in coarse gold deposits. This is a reflection of the high

The Boddington mine, owend and operated by Newmont Mining Corp., Americas biggest gold producer, is located about 130km south-east of Perth. The original, mainly oxide open-pit mine was closed at the end of 2001 and more recent exploration identified an extensive 19.57 million ounce gold bedrock resource, the basis of the Boddington Gold ...
The tests showed that a KC unit can be installed on the grinding circuit of Mastra gold mine to recover the gold accumulated in the circulating load. This unit can process about 20-30 of the circulating load at 400 circulating load equaling to 50-75 th, which would suffice according to
The costs associated with power supply, grinding media, and liners used in comminution circuits almost always represent the single largest cost in gold extraction processes Mosher, 2005. Thus, the efficiency of the entire processing operation is largely dependent on the efficiency of the comminution circuit.
