#### SAG mill ball charge determination and its influence on mill drive ...

In semiautogenous grinding (SAG), the grinding mill inventory, ( volume of total charge, volume of ball charge, etc.) is important in determining the optimum operating condition for maximum production (tph), minimum specific energy (kwh/t) or lowest cost (/t). A twodimensional graphical method is presented for determining the actual ball charge within the total charge when parameters ...
