laboratory ball mill operation

ball mill operation -grinding circuit startup & shutdown procedure

After the grinding circuit has been brought up to normal operating conditions, the operator must monitor the various process variables and alarms. Most of these variables are monitored in the mill control room, however, the operator is also required to sample and analyse process streams and read local indicators.

The ball mill is susceptible to variations in ore hardness resulting in various grinds at constant throughput, or alternatively, various tonnages at constant grind. The variation in grind is not directly determined. However, a changing cyclone overflow density, at a constant tonnage rate and feed density, would be indicative of changing ore hardness and in that case the tonnage fed to the ball mill should be changed accordingly.

The ore feed rate to the ball mill is controlled by the weightometer located on the mill feed conveyor which can be manually adjusted with in the control room to give a constant weight reading. The signal from the weightometer increases or decreases the belt feeder speed and adjusts the water addition to the ball mill (as a function of the actual weight reading). Both weight control and the proportion of water can be adjusted in the control room.

The water rationing controller must be adjusted programmatically to give the desired ball mill discharge density (normally 60-65% solids). The ball mill discharge density should be checked manually at regular intervals and adjustment made to water ratio controller setpoint to adjust the ball mill discharge density.

The grinding circuit operator must ensure that the ball mill runs properly loaded and gives the correct ore grind. A major practical indication of mill loading is the sound made by the mill. A properly loaded mill will have a deep rhythmic roar, while an under loaded mill will have a metallic rattling type noise and an overloaded mill will be quite silent.

The operator must manually measure the cyclone overflow and underflow densities regularly. An increase in overflowdensity is indicative of softer ore and will soon be accompanied by a lowering of power draw at the mill and a change of sound indicating that the mill is becoming under loaded. To compensate, feed tonnage must be increased. Similarity, a decrease in the cyclone overflow density is indicative of harder ore and this will be accompanied eventually by a coking of the mill. Feed to the ball mill must be reduced.

In the event of an emergency, the mill feed conveyor is shut down individually or by stopping the operating cyclone feed pump. The ball mill must be shut down separately. All equipmentshutdowns are performed locally or from the MCC located in the mill control room.

laboratory ball mill

A Laboratory Ball Millis used for grinding in laboratory flotation test work, wet grinding is necessary in several stages in order to approximate the actual grinding conditions of a ball mill and classifier in plant operation. With this small ball millit is possible to grind successfully in several stages without dilution, because the large feed opening and discharge hole (which retains the balls while the mill is being discharged) permits quick and thorough draining with the use of a minimum of wash water. Used in conjunction with a (Closed) Ball Mill, and a laboratory batch classifier saves time.

The (Open) Batch Mill makes possible simulation of grinding in a ball mill-classifier circuit by grinding a fixed time, then hand classifying with a sieve and a bucket and returning the sand to the mill for further grinding. Pulp volume can be kept at a minimum by control of wash water since the ball load does not dump out. Thus fine or coarse grinding is accomplished with ease of manipulation. The mill is used considerably as a regrind unit for further size reduction of flotation concentrates, table concentrates, middlings, and other mill products. Air may be introduced to the pulp, if desired, through theopen end of the cast steel drum.The (Open) Laboratory Ball Mill can beused for the amalgamation of table and flotation concentrates, by using one 4 ball during the grinding action.A few slight changes provide for mounting an Abbe Jar onthe driving shaft opposite the drum. This affords anexcellent combination laboratory grinding unit.

Laboratory Ball-Rod Mill is for grinding large quantities of ore in batch or continuous work. A grate discharge allows quick emptying for batch work; and a trunnion discharge, for continuous work. This flexible unit can also be used as an amalgamator.

The welded steel base can be provided in lengths suitable for supporting one, two, or three drums. One drum constitutes a ball mill; two, a rod mill; and three, a tube mill. The constructionpermits easy and rapid addition or removal of drums forconversion from one type to another, the trunnion being moved along the channels to accommodate the various lengths.The grinding drums are made with thick walls, thus eliminating the necessity of liners and the possibility of salting samples.This grinding mill has many commercial applications, since special acid resisting drums and heads can be furnished. Hard iron or alloy steel replaceable liners are easily inserted where wear is an item as in continuous use.

For continuous pilot test plants utilizing No. 7 or No. 8 Sub-A Flotation Machines, ball mills with larger grinding capacities are required. The 30 Convertible Ball Mill is ideal for this application. Capacity of this mill with single section is 3 to 5 tons per 24 hours while the double section mill, illustrated above, has a capacity of 6 to 9 tons per 24 hours.

The Buckboard and Muller ball mills are an extremely useful addition to most ore dressing or industrial laboratories. It accomplishes the quick reduction of small quantities of ore or other crushable materials to a fine powder. The unit consists of a chilled iron buckboard grinding surface, two sides of which are rimmed, and the desired type and weight of muller. Thebuckboard grinding surface is planed smooth and standard mullers have rounded crushing faces. Mullers may be purchased separately from either standard types shown or special from the three sizes of each type listed in the table and classified by rounded or flattened crushing faces. Rounded face mullers as listed have hickory axe type handles and flattened face mullers are equipped with hickory pick type handles.

MILL, Ball, Braun-WelschA laboratory ball mill particularly suitable for the metallurgical laboratory for flotation, cyanidation or amalgamation tests, but useful for any type of fine grinding. Will grind either wet or dry.

The ball mill body, or shell, is of gray cast iron, 12 inches inside diameter, 7 inches between the two machined driving ribs. Openings in the centers of heads allow free access of air during the grind, duplicating commercial scale plant conditions. The driving power is peripheral, applied frictionally through the supporting rollers. For loading, discharging and cleaning, the mill body is raised from the rollers by a rack and pinion device. This allows it to be turned, bringing its axis into the vertical position shown above. Removing the upper head by loosening five lug screws makes the inside completely visible and accessible. Pulp can be discharged through the lower opening, the balls being retained by a spider. Discharging and cleaning are rapid and thorough. All possibility of salting is eliminated, provided advantage is taken of the facilities for thorough cleaning.

The capacity is from 10 grams up to 12 pounds. Preliminary crushing to minus 10 mesh is recommended. The time for reducing an average sample to minus 65 mesh is about 15 minutes. Iron balls are used. The usual ball charge is 22 pounds, assorted sizes, 1, 1 and 2 inch being used. Steel rods 1 inch diameter may be used with good results. The mill operates at 50 R. P. M. and is driven by a 1/6 H. P. 110 volt, belt-connected motor. Mounted on steel table; floor space required, 30 x 30 inches. Height over all, 51 inches. Net weight, including balls, 270 pounds. Gross shipping weight, approximately 350 pounds.

A Ball Mill of Laboratory size, for grinding wet or dry material. Specially recommended for experimental flotation work where the oil or reagent is mixed with the samples, and gives results in harmony with those obtained in regular practice. Can be used for any type of fine grinding.

The maximum capacity is 25 pounds of ore. An assortment of iron balls inches, 1 inch and 1 inch sizes are included. The sample should be ground 20 mesh or finer (preferably with a Braun type U A Pulverizer) before being placed in the ball mill.

Designed for laboratory needs with ready access for charging and discharging the sample. The oval opening measures approximately 10 x 4 inches, and is large enough for all practical purposes. The receiving pan is in two parts, the upper portion being fitted with a screen to catch the iron balls while the ground materials fall through into the lower pan.

The Abbe Pebble Mill is particularly adapted to pulverizing or mixing either dry or wet materials. This unit is of the batch or intermittent type. The cylinder is approximately half filled with flint pebbles, porcelain balls, or metal balls; the material is put into the cylinder; a tight cover is fastened securely, to seal the mill hermetically; and the cylinder is then revolved until the fineness required is obtained. After that the tight cover is replaced by a grate discharge cover and the cylinder is revolved until the material is discharged, the grate retaining the pebbles or balls. For dry grinding it is customary to enclose the cylinder to prevent the spread of undesirable dustand also to preserve all of sample to insure accuracy of testingprocedures.

In wet grinding, the same directions are followed except there is no casing required; and instead of replacing the tight cover with a grate cover, a special wet discharge cover, or the Abbe patented discharge valve, is used for emptying the mill.

The Abbe Laboratory Jar Mill pulverizes materials by friction and the fall of pebbles or balls contained within a rotating jar. In operation the jar is filled almost to the center plane with pebbles, and enough crushed material is added to fill the interstices between the pebbles and bring the charge to about 3/5 of the capacity of the jar. Usually a coarse screen is used to separate the pebbles from the material after grinding.

This unit is particularly adapted to pulverizing and mixing dry or wet materials and is manufactured in many sizes and styles for various capacities and conditions. Number of jars handled varies with mill size.

Jars are manufactured in many sizes and are of the best material. The three kinds available are: (1) Porcelain Jars carefully molded and fired to obtain the proper degree of vitrification so as to give acid and wear resisting qualities for grinding and agitation. (2) Metal Jarsmade of the metal most resistant to the action of a grinding charge, such as Monel, stainless steel, cast steel, and bronze. (3) Pyrex Jarsare transparent and enable observation during grinding or agitating action.

The Jar type Laboratory Ball Mill is ideal for use in pulverizing, mixing of dry and wet materials, and agitation of all types of pulps. Two large bottles or as many as six smallbottles can be used at the same time, thus providing a very flexible type of jar mill. When used for agitation, large ammonia bottles filled with pulp can be agitated continuously for any length of time.

The Laboratory Pebble Mill is a simple, efficient laboratory batch grinding unit. This machine is also an effective laboratory bottle type agitator for use on all types of pulps especially cyanide pulp. Two large bottles or jars or as many as six small jars may be used at the same time. This provides a wide range of capacity for batch laboratory grinding, and, at thesame time, affords a very flexible unit for batch agitation.The speed reducer and chain drive mechanism is positiveand the entire unit is mounted on a steel base. Idler rolleris adjustable to various bottle sizes. Data on jar sizes and types given under Laboratory Agitator, (Bottle Type).

Pulverizing is effected in these ball mills by the friction and fall of balls or pebbles contained within a rotating porcelain or glass jar. In general practice, the jar is filled to a little below the centre plane with pebbles; well crushed material then being added to fill the interstices and bring the charge to about three-fifths of the total space in the jar. After the operation, the pebbles and ground material are usually separated by means of a coarse grid.

Either hard or soft material may be ground, but it should not be moist to the extent that it will pack in the cylinder. If sufficient liquid is present, this method is superior to others for fine pulverization. Equipment is supplied complete with porcelain jar and flint pebbles.

A complete laboratory service that includes preliminary examination, batch or pilot-grinding test, open or closed circuit grinding, both wet and/or dryprovides important data for determining accurate mill size, for determining circulating loads, sizing accessories, grindability indexes and power requirements. Preliminary tests are made at no cost to you. Send 100 lb. sample of material prepaid.

Under the foregoing conditions experiments were designed to obtain data on (1) the relation of time of grind to mill output in g.p.m., and (2) the relation of mill output in g.p.m. to size of finished product. The relation of time of grind to mill output was studied by two procedures: (1) By a batch continuous grind technic and (2) by a batch cycle grind technic. The batch cycle grind technic is described in Part II of this Paper, Batch Closed-Circuit Grinding.

A short period of grind was selected, which far purposes of discussion can be assigned a value of x minutes. A number of individual 1,750-gram charges were weighed out. One of them was ground for x minutes, one for 2x minutes, one for 3x minutes, and so on up to 8x minutes.

The g.p.m. output of the mill for any x-minute time increment is readily calculated by simple arithmetic. If Wx is the weight of finished product resulting in the first x-minute grind, the g.p.m. output is Wx % x. If W2x is the weight of finished product produced in 2x minutes time, the mill output for the second x-minute increment is W2x Wx/x g.p.m., and so on.

It is obvious that the maximum percentage (by weight) of unfinished product (feed) is present in the mill when x is zero, and that although the mill load remains constant, the weight of unfinished feed starts diminishing at the initial turn of the mill. For this reason it was thought that in batch grinding, which may be assumed to compare in a limited way to open-circuit grinding, the efficiency of the mill possibly should be a maximum at the very initial revolution of the mill. This proved not necessarily to be the case, as may be seen by reference to the experimental data given.

The many missing links in the science of ball-mill grinding as revealed in mailing the study here presented and as brought out in the subsequent analysis of the experimental data, led to the studies by the author and H. E. Lee which are presented elsewhere under the title of Ball Mill Studies, Parts I, II, III, etc., and to Part II of this paper.

The condensed experimental data of this research and calculations based on these data are given in Table 1. The time of grind is given in vertical column 1. The sieve analysis of the product of each grind test is given, showing total grams, weight per cent, weight per cent cumulative, grams per minute, grams per minute cumulative, total surface, and total surface cumulative of each sieve size. There is also a horizontal column for each time, increment of grind, giving grams per minute cumulative for each three-minute grind increment throughout the entire 24-minute time, rangethat is, the g.p.m. output for the 0 to 3 minute period, for the 3 to 6 minute period, for the 6 to 9 minute period, and so on for each period.

Figure 1 shows the finished product-per cent of total mill charge plotted vertically against time of grind horizontally for each of the finished sizes considerednamely, 65, 100, 150, 200, and 250 mesh. These lines may be termed cumulative rate curves.

A set of tests similar to those previously described for quartz was made with Morning mine ore. The data are presented in Table 2. This ore is an aggregate largely of quartzite, siderite, sphalerite, and galena. These, data are shown graphically in Figure 4, in which finished product, g.p.m. is plotted vertically against time of grind increment horizontally. These curves indicate that at all sizes the highest rate of production of finished product is for the initial two-minute grind increment, except in the cases of the finished minus-48 mesh and minus-65 mesh products. In the absence of surface data, such as were calculated for quartz, it can not be known if the maximum finished product points for the minus-48 and minus-65 mesh sizeswhich occur at the second two-minute grind incrementsare due to increases in unfinished sand surface in the mill or to some other element.

The significant fact to note from this set of experiments is that finished product is made most rapidly at the very beginning of the grind. This suggests that in the practical closed-circuit plant the circulating load should be large in order to keep a high percentage of unfinished sand in the mill.

For quartz grinding to, say, finished minus-100 mesh sand, a 100 per cent circulating load should give approximate maximum efficiency. For Morning ore the circulating load should be high for maximum efficiency. The charge should not remain in the mill longer than two minutes, or possibly one minute. For this (two min.) length of grind for, say, finished minus-100 mesh product, 20.6 per cent of the charge is reduced to finished size. Therefore, for high efficiency, a circulating load of not less than 500 per cent is required. This corresponds closely to practice now in vogue in the Morning Mill, Mullan, Idaho, where this material is being milled. In designing a plant to treat a new ore, a test of this kind should be of much value in selecting the type of ball mill and classifier to be used. These experiments led to the batch closed-circuit experiments, which are to be described in Part II of this paper.

If the capacity of the mill used in these experiments be rated at one unit of finished minus-65 mesh product in a unit of time, its capacity to make finished product at any finer mesh may be calculated from Table I for quartz and from Table 2 for Morning ore. See Table 3.

These data show that the mill has four times as much capacity when grinding to finished minus-65 mesh as when grinding to finished minus-250 mesh. It has approximately three times as much capacity to produce finished minus-150 mesh Morning ore as finished minus-150 mesh quartz. These figures all are based on the output of the mill for the initial grind periodthree minutes for quartz and two minutes for Morning ore.

To learn if a greater mill output could be obtained than in any of the previous tests, an experiment was designed in which the period of grind was one minute. Quartz was used, and all other experimental conditions were the same as in previous experiments. At the end of each one-minute grind the charge was removed from the mill and the weight, in grams, of finished minus-100 mesh sand was determined. A quantity of new ore equal to the determined weight of finished product with the original charge was returned to the mill. The grind was conducted for another one-minute period. This process was repeated seven times, and each time enough new water was added to keep the water-ore ratio at 30:70 by weight. At seven new ore additions the mill became choked, and further additions could not be made.

The object in the plan of this experiment was to keep in the mill a nearly constant weight of unfinished feed, without removing the finished product. This procedure should, of course, result in high unfinished sand surface in the mill. The experimental data of this run are compiled in Table 4.

The output of finished minus-100 mesh sand produced the first minute is 175 grams; the output per minute for the first two minutes is 154 grams; for the first three minutes, 127 grams; for the first four minutes, 143 grams; for the first five minutes, 108 grams; for the first six minutes, 119 grams; and for the full seven minutes, 106 grams. On the basis of these figures the output is a maximum for the initial one-minute grind during, which only original feed is in the mill. Considered on the basis of output for each of the time increments, calculation shows that the output of the mill is greatest during the fourth minute grind increment, when 195 grams were produced. This result may be due to experimental error, and it is believed to be, for during the next minute (the fifth) increment the output is negative and for the sixth-minute increment the output is 166 grams. That the mill output was less for the third and fifth minute increments than for the fourth-minute increment is almost proof of experimental error, and the conclusion may safely be drawn that nothing is to be gained by overfeeding a ball mill, and that choking of the mill with finished product cuts down the mill efficiency.

laboratory mills

A Lab grinding mill is a unit operation designed to break a solid material into smaller pieces. There are many different types of laboratory mills and grinding mills for lab and many types of materials processed in them. The grinding of solid matters occurs under exposure of mechanical forces that trench the structure by overcoming of the interior bonding forces. After the grinding the state of the solid is changed: the grain size, the grain size disposition and the grain shape

For chemical and physical analytical methods it is essential that the specimen is perfectly homogenizedto anadequate degree of analytical fineness.MRC provides reliable range of grinders and mills for sample preparation,for coarse, fine and ultrafine size reduction of almost any dry material.

Milling also refers to the process of breaking down, separating, sizing, or classifying aggregate material. For instance rock crushing or grinding to produce uniform aggregate size for construction purposes, or separation of rock, soil or aggregate material for the purposes of structural fill or land reclamation activities. Aggregate milling processes are also used to remove or separate contamination or moisture from aggregate or soil and to produce "dry fills" prior to transport or structural filling.Grinding may serve the following purposes in engineering:

A typical type of fine grinder is theball mill. A slightly inclined or horizontal rotating cylinder is partially filled with balls, usually stone or metal, which grinds material to the necessary fineness by friction and impact with the tumbling balls. Ball mills normally operate with an approximate ball charge of 30%. Ball mills are characterized by their smaller (comparatively) diameter and longer length, and often have a length 1.5 to 2.5 times the diameter. The feed is at one end of the cylinder and the discharge is at the other.

Sample Mill are designed for grinding particularly hard dry materials, they are similar to coffee grinders but they are more powerful and a larger and more powerful motor that does not burn with effort.

These mills can be found in field service laboratories, agricultural laboratories, laboratories of building material manufacturers, pharmaceutical laboratories, seed laboratories, food laboratories and mixing institutes.

-The mills are designed for grinding trees, branches, leaf, seeds, spices, legumes, tablets, gravel, rocks, stones, ceramics electronic cards and memories, raw materials of the building, plastics and food industry and more.

laboratory ball mill, planetary ball mill, roller ball mill

Aball millis a grinding machine used to grind, blend, and sometimes for mixing of materials for use in geology, ceramics, metallurgy, electronics, pharmacy, construction material, and light industry, etc. Ball mills are classified as attritor, planetary ball mill, high energy ball mill, horizontal ball mill, or shaker mill. The working principle is simple;impactandattritionsize reduction take place as the balls crash each other or the grinding wall.

Thenanostructure can be formed by varying the number and size of balls, the material used for the balls, the material used for the cylinder, the rotation speed, and the material to be milled.Ball millsare commonly used for crushing and grinding the materials into an extremely fine powder. The sample material can smash and blend various materials and granularities. Materials particles can be downsized to as low as 0.1um. The ball mill contains a hollow cylindrical container that rotates about its axis. These cylinders are made of stainless steel, Alumina Ceramic,Agate,Zirconia,Teflon,Nylon, andPolyurethane.

In a laboratory planetary ball mill, four or two ball grinding jars are to be installed simultaneously on the turning plate. When the plate rotates, the jar axis makes the planetary rotation in the opposite direction and the grinding media in the jar grind and mix sample at high speed.

A roller ball mill most widely used in both wet and dry conditions, inbatch and continuous operations, and on lab scale and large pilot scales. Grinding media in ball mills travel at different velocities. Therefore, collision force, direction, and kineticenergybetween two or more elements vary greatly within the ball charge. Frictional wear or rubbing forces act on the particles as well as collision energy. These forces are derived from therotational motionof the balls and the movement of particles within the mill and contact zones of colliding balls.

rod/ball mill| eriez lab equipment

MACSALAB Drive Rolls for Rod / Ball Mills are Rubber coated and manufactured in Double and Triple Roll models. The Rolls are 120 mm diameter x 1200 mm long and powered by a 0.37 KW 220 Volt Motor with a variable speed controller.

The Ball/Rod mills are meant for producing fine particle size reduction through attrition and compressive forces at the grain size level. They are the most effective laboratory mills for batch-wise, rapid grinding of medium-hard to very hard samples down to finest particle sizes.

A horizontal rotating cylinder (vessel) is partially filled with balls/rods (grinding media), usually stone or metal, which grinds material to the necessary fineness by friction and impact with the tumbling balls/rods. A rotating drum throws material and balls/rods in a counteracting motion which causes impact breakage of larger particles and compressive grinding of finer particles. Attrition in the charge causes grinding of finer particles.

Try to limit the size of the batch to 25% of the total vessel volume which is sufficient to fill the voids and slightly cover the grinding Media. Any larger batches cause the balls to spread out throughout the mass of solids so they cannot make effective contact with each other, because of the layers of material between them. This greatly reduces the grinding efficiency of the mill and in some cases makes it impossible to attain the desired results.

The Feed size should preferable be 8 mesh or smaller, although many operations start with much larger pieces. Having the feed material as fine as possible enables the use of smaller sizes of grinding media, which are always best for fine uniform grinding and dispersions. For hard material it is especially advantageous to start with a fairly fine product.

After a long period of rotation and impact, the sample gradually changes from large pieces to small pieces, and small pieces to powder. The ball mill is the basic grinding equipment in a laboratory. Factories also often uses large-scale ball mill to manufacture powder.

The faster the rotation speed, the greater mechanical force can be generated. The collision frequency can improve the grinding efficiency. However, with too fast rotation speed, it may reduce the frequency of grinding ball falling down and hitting the sample. It will reduce the efficiency. Too high a rotation speed may also cause the grinding jar to lose its adhesion stability and even cause danger to the operator.

A basic ball mill only rotates in one axis, and the forces in the other axial directions rely solely on the dispersion of forces in the other axial directions while grinding beads rolling. Some ball mills are designed with a swing mechanism, and the mechanical force extends to the other two axis and increase the collision force of the grinding beads in 3D direction. However, the increased mechanical complexity may influence the stability and durability of the machine during operation.

The two conditions affects the degree of freedom and collision distance between the sample and the grinding ball. Excessive empty space reduces the frequency of collision between the sample and the grinding beads. Otherwise, a crowded space makes the grinding beads and the sample have almost no distance in between, and the gravitational acceleration reduced, only rely on the weight of the grinding beads. A proper size of jar and empty space inside is also important.

The size of the grinding beads will affect the size distribution of the voids. In some occasions, mixed grinding balls with different sizes can have better grinding results. In addition, the more grinding balls filled, the greater the total weight. With the assistance of gravity, it is helpful to improve the grinding efficiency, too. However, the condition of empty space mentioned above and the upper limit of weight that a ball mill can drive must be considered.

The study was focused on to predict the particle size distribution.To predicting particle distribution, DEM and PBM were used conjointly.The relational expression of the grinding rate parameter and the normal force was derived.It was confirm that the size distributions can be predicted using the derived relation.

Grinding processing consumes a lot of energy in mineral processing, but it is a low-efficiency process in which only approximately 1% of the total energy is used to reduce the actual particle size. Therefore, an efficient operation in the grinding process increases the competitiveness of the production and is an essential for enhancing the energy efficiency of the entire mineral processing procedure.

Therefore, the study will focus on to finding a different method to predicting the particle size distribution of the ball mill, by using the PBM which reflects the actual size distributions of ground product and the DEM which can understand the internal particle behavior in the mill chamber. First, the grinding parameters were calculated by applying size distributions of ground product under various conditions to PBM and the behaviors of the particles inside the ball mill obtained through DEM were analyzed to predict the distribution of the impact energy used for grinding. Next, the relational expression between the grinding rate parameter and the normal force applied to the grinding materials was derived. Using the relational expression derived from this study, it was confirmed that the size distributions in other conditions can be predicted.

To liberate minerals from sparsely distributed and depleting the ore bodies finer grinding than generally obtained by the conventional Rod Mill Ball Mill grinding circuits is needed. Longer grinding periods in the conventional milling processes prove too expensive mainly due to large power consumption. Stirrer mills have been tried in mineral industry with considerable success and have therefore been increasingly used. In this chapter, the theories involved in the design and operation of these mills, as established till now, are explained. Further theoretical studies and designs of the mills are still in progress for a better understanding and improved operation. Presently, the mills have been proved to be economically viable and the mineral of interest conducive to improved recovery and grade.
