Mineral Comminution Circuits

Mineral Comminution Circuits


Comminution processes such as crushing and grinding constitute a significant proportion of capital and operating costs in mineral processing plants, and are critical to the economic performance of most mining operations.

This book will help practising engineers get the best out of their comminution circuits through a well-proven methodical approach to process optimisation. Based on experience over 30 years of research and consulting, the book provides the reader with the background and techniques necessary to maximise process productivity.

Topics Include:

  • The features and operation of comminution and classification processes
  • Mathematical process models of crushing, grinding and mineral liberation
  • Surveying and analysing comminution circuits
  • Prediction of power draw
  • Process optimisation by computer simulation
  • Ore breakage testing
