INFLUENCE OF AN ORGANIC POLYMER IN BALLMILL GRINDING OF QUARTZ, DOLOMITE, AND COPPER ORE By A. R. Rule, 1 A. J. Fergus,2 and C. B. Daellenbach 3 ABSTRACT Research was done by the Bureau of Mines to determine the effect of a lowmolecularweight polymer on wet grinding of quartz, dolomite, and a copper ore.

of it. Furthermore, the breakage distribution functions have been found to be normalizable with feed size, thus reducing the number of parameters that must be estimated. The study has a I so shown that both the breakage rate and the I i berat ion function suggest a preferent i a I breakage of sphalerite over dolomite gangue.
The inside of the mill is lined with lifting plates to lift the material inside the mill, where it then falls off the plates onto the rest of the ore charge. SAG mills are primarily used at gold, copper and platinum mines with applications also in the lead, zinc, silver, alumina and nickel industries.
The studied porphyry copper deposit is located mainly in the volcanics and intrusive, granitoids rocks. Ore mineralization forms an ore body, presented by large stock work and it has ellipsoidal contours. The ore mineralization is forms mainly fine veinlets in craks and mineral disseminations. Pyrite and
EFFECT OF MILLING ENVIRONMENT ON THE BREAKAGE RATES IN DRY AND WET GRINDING R. Verma and R.K. Rajamani Comminution Center 115EMRO University of Utah Salt Lake City, UT 84112 ABSTRACT In ball milling the rates of breakage vary primarily with the size distribution of powder in the mill.
POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS OF ORE PRECONCENTRATION USING HIGH VOLTAGE PULSES FOR AG/SAG MILLING ABSTRACT A novel technique using high voltage pulses (HVP) for ore preconcentration has recently been reported. The technique utilises metalliferous graininduced selective breakage and sizebased screening to separate the feed ore by grade.

comparison between wet and dry ore milling resto In ball milling the rates of breakage vary primarily with the size distribution of powder in the mill. Using an limestone and copper ore show timedependent breakage rates under both dry and wet grinding conditions. The effect .
Liberation analysis, measured using particle sections was carried out on the crushed products of a goldbearing pyrite ore and a copper sulphide ore after impact breakage at various specific breakage energies in the JKRBT. Three specific energy levels were investigated: 2.5 kWh/t, 1.0 kWh/t and 0.1 kWh/t.
