Mine operating costs and the potential impacts of energy ...

Effects of mine and mineral type were observed, with underground milling costs being significantly less than open pit milling costs and gold mines occupying a significantly larger share of mine operating costs than copper-containing mines. The overall relative operating costs were found to be in the ratios between (43:43:14) and (45:45:10) (Mine:Mill:G A). A treatment of potential unit operations and

01/02/2014  In a review of mine costs and sizes for base metals such as copper and zinc, Crowson (2003) found that the costs of production per tonne of metal produced decreased with mine size, and was highly dependent on ore grade and the technology available for processing. Moreover, Crowson identified these impacts on mine cost as themselves being sensitive to variable rates of metal

Optimizing Grinding and Regrinding Capacity in Mill Design

25/04/2019  The regrinding cost will generally be only a small fraction of the primary grinding cost. Therefore, for this purpose, a lower order of accuracy is adequate in the case of regrinding. The general procedure is first to calculate the kilowatt-hour per ton for grinding the rougher concentrate resulting from each primary grind to 80 percent passing 50 microns, using Bond’s formula with appropriate

We observed that, particle size decreased significantly due to regrinding while floatability of the feed was more than discharge. Moreover, floatability of each fraction (e.g. -400, +400-325) in mill feed and discharge was studied. Results indicated that, the floatability of all fractions in the mill feed was more than the mill discharge. It means that electrochemical interactions between the grinding media and
