theory has been shown to provide the best correlation in decades of power-based design and analyses of conventional grinding circuits (Bond 1961). Bond’s third theory is presented in [1]. By rearranging the formula to [2], the operating work index (Wio) of an existing grinding circuit can be calculated, given known mill power
The MacPerson Autogenous Grindability Test determines the MacPherson Correlated Autogenous Work Index*. This can be used in conjunction with the Bond Rod and Ball Mill Work Indices to determine power requirements, and to suggest circuit configurations for autogenous grinding (AG) and semi-autogenous grinding (SAG) circuits. Bond’s Third Theory of Comminution is used to calculate net
Rotary mills have been found to be inefﬁ cient when grinding large hard material. Single stage balls mills, when processing hard to grind, large sized material incur an oversize inef ﬁ ciency problem over and above the Bond oversize feed factor (EF4). Rod mills

The mill power draw, throughput and product size distribution are used to compute a specific energy input and the MacPherson autogenous work index (AWI). Although the importance to achieve steady-state in a grinding test is widely accepted (Bond tests), the MacPherson test remains the only small-scale AG/SAG mill test that offers this option.
Autogenous grinding mills use larger rocks to impact and break smaller rocks as the mill rotates. Semi-autogenous mills are basically the same autogenous mills, but with the addition of balls, similar to those in ball mills. Semi-autogenous mills have larger diameter-to-length ratios compared to ball mills. Common applications for semi-autogenous mills include gold, copper and platinum.

Tumbling mills are of three basic types: rod, ball, and autogenous (figure-3). Structurally, each type of mill consists of a horizontal cylindrical shell, provided with renewable wearing liners and a charge of grinding medium.

An autogenous grinding mill may receive a coarse run of mine rock feed and discharge it as a finished ground sand or slime product. In order to efliciently break down the rock the mill must provide both impact and attrition forces. In mills with substantially smooth linings and operating at sub-critical or super-critical speeds the power efiiciency in grinding run of mine rock is very low. The

Autogenous (AG) and semi-autogenous (SAG) grinding mills have become popular in the mining industry for their ability to provide a high reduction ratio and deal with high tonnage projects in a compact plant layout. AG mills exclusively use ore as grinding media, while in SAG mills steel balls are added as a supplement. For more than 40 years researchers have been developing mathematical models

1.1 Grinding Media Types To date, all IsaMill installations have taken advantage of the technology’s ability to use a low cost, but relatively low quality grinding media such as silica sand, river pebble, smelter slag or fine primary mill scats (autogenous milling).
Mill power models have been used in a variety of ways in industrial practice since power directly equates to throughput and fineness of ground product. We first start with Hogg-Fuerstenau Power Model and show how this model successfully predicted the power draw of many grinding mills in several mining operations. Then, we show how this model was on the verge of being able to predict the

Wet primary grinding is to be carried out in two 6.5 m diameter by 5.4 m long autogenous grinding mills, a new technique for LKAB. LKAB's Kiruna developments KUJ 2000 and SAK 2000 The need for crushing prior to grinding has in the past two decades largely been replaced by the advent of autogenous grinding mills.
Autogenous (AG) and semi-autogenous (SAG) grinding mills have become popular in the mining industry for their ability to provide a high reduction ratio and deal with high tonnage projects in a compact plant layout. AG mills exclusively use ore as grinding media, while in SAG mills steel balls are added as a supplement. For more than 40 years researchers have been developing mathematical models
The autogenous mill has, however, received very little attention inthis respect, andinviewoftheincreasing importance ofthis type ofmill,the Julius Kruttschnitt Mineral Re-search Centre inthe Department of Mining and Metallurgical Engineer-ing, University of Queensland, in 1970 commenced a programme of research into mathematical model-ling of the autogenous mill. This paper reports
These factors can result in capacity limitations when mill diameters reach a critical range, especially for coarser feed sizes of certain ores. Autogenous mills can operate satisfactorily at relatively large diameters because their large active volumes are occupied either completely or mostly by ore, resulting in higher values of nominal residence time and flow path tortuosity.

Semi-autogenous grinding uses a minimal ball charge in the range of 6-15% while autogenous grinding uses ore only. SAG and AG Mills operate by lifting ore/grinding media and dropping it on the operating bed of the mill charge. High impacts from lifting ore and media promote impact breakage which is the primary mechanism for size reduction in the mill. Via the use of sophisticated instruments
Both the autogenous grinding mill and the ball mill feed parts are welded with groove and embedded inner wear-resistant lining plate. As the sag mill does not contain grinding medium, the abrasion and impact on the equipment are relatively small. The feed of the ball mill contains grinding balls. In order to effectively reduce the direct impact of materials on the ball mill feed bushing and
