### Quantifying the energy efficiency of fine grinding ...

25/11/2021 Benchmarking energy efficiency requires three measurements: comminution power, rock throughput and the resulting size reduction. The first two measurements are fairly objective, however, the third is subjective and could be measured in numerous different ways. Two of the most popular methods for estimating grinding energy requirements are the Bond

21/07/2006 The U.S. mining industry operates approximately 80 semi-autogenesis grinding mills (SAG) throughout the United States. Depending on the mill size the SAG mills draws between 2 MW and 17 MW. The product from the SAG mill is further reduced in size using pebble crushers and ball mills. Hence, typical gold or copper ore requires between 2.0 and 7.5 kWh
