COPPER-GOLD: Mount Milligan mill throughput up since ...

BRITISH COLUMBIA – Thompson Creek Metals of Denver said that mill throughput averaged 52,457 t/d during November at the Mount Milligan copper-gold project 145 km northwest of Prince George. That is a significant increase from the 44,077 t/d average during Q3 2015. The upturn comes thanks to the installation of a second SAG discharge screen deck in late October.

Flexible milling and grinding solutions that last | FL

For the mining industry, our semi-autogenous (SAG) grinding mill uses a minimal ball charge in the range of 6-15 percent. It is primarily used in the gold, copper and platinum industries as well as in the lead, zinc, silver, and nickel industries. Autogenous (AG) grinding mills involve no grinding media as the ore itself acts as the grinding media.

SAG Mill Grinding Circuit Design

AG mills (or SAG mills with low ball charges) are often used in single-stage grinding applications. Based on their higher throughput and coarser grind relative to AG mills, it is more common for SAG mills to he used as the primary stage of grinding, followed by a second stage of milling.

Firstly, there was a serious flaw in the power configuration of the SAG mill and ball mill (both rated at 6000 kW with a single pinion drive). The capacity of the SAG mill was not fully utilized, as the actual operating power draw was only 3358 kW. This meant it was only operating at 56% of its maximum power, providing large room for improvement.
