### Selection of Comminution Circuits for Improved Efficiency

In addition the size distribution and grinding circuit chemistry may impact on the performance of the downstream circuit (Lane 1999 and Rantanen 1996). Fully autogenous circuits are attractive due to the elimination of steel media costs. Typically a SAG mill based circuit (P80 of 106 to 150 um) has media costs of around A 1/t.

SAG mill throughput is often a bottleneck to increasing plant productivity. Improved size distribution control in the mill feed can be used to increase mill production. This can be accomplished by controlling blast fragmentation as a function of energy input and rock characteristics. Such an approach requires the integration of rock fragmentation and comminution modeling.
