### Autogenous & Semi-Autogenous Grinding Circuits

ABC closed circuit, Autogenous-Ball-Mill-Crusher. Another similar technique is the ABC open circuit where the crusher product feeds the ball mill rather than the autogenous mill. Crusher product is typical feed to a ball mill using large diameter balls but not much grinding of 20-25 mm ore can be accomplished in an autogenous mill.

SAG is an acronym for Semi-Autogenous Grinding. SAG mills are autogenous mills but use grinding balls like a ball mill. A SAG mill is usually a primary or first stage grinder. SAG mills use a ball charge of 8 to 21%. The largest SAG mill is 42' (12.8m) in diameter, powered by a 28 MW (38,000 HP) motor.

Simplifying wet grinding with minevik AG/SAG mills AG/SAG mills are often the optimum solution for wet grinding (achieved in a slurry 50 to 80 percent solids). AG/SAG mills can accomplish the same size reduction work as two or stages of crushing and screening, a rod mill, and some or all of the work done by a ball mill.

of the work of a ball mill. Because of the range of mill sizes available, AG/SAG milling can often be accomplished with fewer lines than in a conventional rod mill-ball circuit. All of the above contributes to lower capital cost and lower maintenance cost for an AG/SAG mill circuit and accounts for the current popularity of this type of size
