This proven methodology has appliions ranging from greenfield projects to operations with AG/SAG or conventional crushing and grinding circuits. Process improvements can be higher mining productivity, higher mill throughput, decreased overall operating costs and higher flotation or leach recovery.
The Southern African Institute of Mining and Metallurgy Platinum 2012 784 is in the enviable position of owning both the VTM™ and SMD technologies, and can therefore evaluate the efficacy of each technology on a case–bycase basis. Stirred mills are in general applied to fine and ultrafine grinding appliions. For the purposes
