SINGLE STAGE SAG/AG MILLING DESIGN ABSTRACT Single stage semi-autogenous / autogenous (S/AG) milling has become a common design for a variety of ore ... a single stage S/AG mill circuit. 1) Characterisation of the ore using bench tests. 2) Determining if the use of a single stage circuit is appropriate, using defined selection criteria.

Single stage SAG Mills are very beneficial in reducing CAPEX for plants with a staged throughput approach. When future tonnage is to be increased, the SAG Mill can feed downstream ball milling to boost capacity. Amstar SAG/AG Mills range in size from 4.3m through 12.2m in diameter with powers as high as 28,000 kW.

Ball mill Operating strategy when circuit is SAG-limited (note, fixed speed ball mills can only be vary P 80) Optional parameters. Description and Comment are optional text fields; Maximum t/h limit is a t/h throughput above which a warning message is displayed (but does not actually limit the throughput).

SAG circuit F 80 = 100 mm; transfer T 80 = 244 µm ; circuit P 80 = 74 µm; SAG power draw (at motor input) = 1350 kW (at mill shell = 1283 kW) SAG mill ball charge = 10.6 % vol; SAG mill discharge % solids = 84% weight; SAG mill speed 8.59 RPM (53.4% of critical) E SAG at mill shell = 1283/210 = 6.11 kWh/t (to achieve DCS power of 1350 kW ...

ABSTRACT Simulation work was carried out to analyse how feeding a finer size distribution to a single stage SAG mill in closed circuit with hydro cyclones at Freda Rebecca Gold Mine would affect throughput and specific energy consumption using an Excel based milling process simulator developed by Hinde, a comminution specialist who has worked for Mintek for many years.

Figure 2—HPGR ball-mill circuit. To determine whether the novel HPGR-stirred mill circuit arrangement could achieve energy savings in comparison to conventional SAG mill-based circuits, a pilot-scale study was conducted to compare the energy requirements of the existing circuit at the Huckleberry mine to two alternative circuits: an HPGR-ball mill circuit and a novel HPGR-stirred mill circuit.
