In order to separate the valuable components of an ore from the waste rock the minerals must be liberated from their interlocked state physically by comminution As a rule comminution begins by crushing the ore to below a certain size and finishes by grinding it into powder the ultimate fineness of which depends on the nbsp

9 Sep 2016 Each possible mineral recovery process has a certain size range of best performance and the final product of the crushing grinding circuit must match the chosen process size requirements Proper grinding is critical in order to get good metallurgical test results as the entirety of downstream processing is nbsp

When the ore had been blasted it was crushed to a manageable size stage is called Primary Crushing and is often done with Jaw Crushers this was the case at Britannia Jaw crushers are designed to handle large blocks of ore Ore is fed into the top for the froth flotation and must be added at the grinding stage see nbsp

27 Feb 2007 Unfortunately the cinnabar we were given was of a pretty low grade But needs must and we had to use it In some cinnabar ores where the mercury sulfide concentration is high you can actually see small beads of metallic mercury in the ore It certainly wasn 39 t the case with our cinnabar unfortunately

19 Mar 2017 In the handling of wet sticky ores such as encountered in tropical areas having distinct dry and rainy seasons the crushing plant is a section of the mill which must be planned very carefully Unless this is done crushing becomes a constant source of trouble resulting in lost production and high milling cost

Once the ore is mined it can be treated as a whole ore using a dump leaching or heap leaching processes This is typical of low grade oxide deposits Normally the ore is crushed and agglomerated prior to heap leaching High grade ores and ores resistant to cyanide leaching at coarse particle sizes require further nbsp

3 Apr 2015 Because iron is present in many areas it is of relatively of low value and thus a deposit must have a high percentage of Fe to be considered ore grade Low grade iron ores containing lower iron content need beneficiation activities other than crushing screening and washing for increasing their iron nbsp

In actual practice concentration may be simple or complicated depending upon the exact nature of the ore With some ores the beneficiation may be very complicated For instance in concentrating taconite the rock first must be crushed to a fine powder Next magnets are used to separate the useful ore from the gangue

Since each mine site is unique in its mineral composition concentration and quantities the most economical and profitable processing of ore must be Following mining transporting and crushing to a consistent gravel or golf ball size the crushed ore is piled into a heap on top of an impenetrable layer on a slight slope

The run of mine ROM ore refers to ore in its natural unprocessed state just as it is when blasted Clearly the above explanation leaves out many details to enable us to understand as to why we as resource investors should care about the ROM so just consider the following fact every time ore has been extracted from the nbsp
