SAIMM: Johannesburg Branch Event - Loesche Mills for Ore Grinding

Date Thu 21 November 2019, 17:30
Location Worley, Melrose Arch, Johannesburg


RSVP for this event >>>

About the Presentation:
Ore deposits today are characterised by significant variations in the minerology; the particle size is critical for a sufficient degree of mineral liberation to expose the mineral surfaces better. Due to the more complicated ores found today, the grindability of the ores fluctuate, hence the beneficiation process and especially the comminution process must be flexible. Coupled to this, readily available commodities such as water and electricity are diminishing and have a high impact on the viability of a project as well as the environment. Dry comminution of ores is the future in mineral liberation which allows for better recovery and operating expenses.
