### AG Autogenous Grinding Mineral Processing & Metallurgy

Aug 06, 2015 In a autogenous mill the ore is fed directly into the mill from either the primary crusher or the mine itself. The size of the rock will be between four and eight inches. It will be this type of mill that will use a stock pile instead of a bin as fine ore storage. The feed is large enough that moisture and freezing won’t bother it.

### Autogenous and Semi-Autogenous Mills ScienceDirect

Jan 01, 2016 Grinding mills in which comminution takes place without grinding aids are known as autogenous grinding (AG) mills or fully autogenous grinding (FAG) mills. These mills use large lumps of rock as the grinding media. Mills that use intermediate size rock or pebbles as a grinding medium are also autogenous mills but are known as pebble mills.

Autogenous grinding is defined as a system of grinding in which run of mine or coarsely crushed rock is fed directly to the mill which discharges a finished ground sand or slime product.

### Autogenous Grinding & Semi Autogenous Grinding Circuits

Jul 20, 2017 Autogenous grinding is favored when the ore is quite competent and a fine grind is required. Semi-autogenous grinding is applied when fine crushing could cause severe problems or when ore is variable in hardness or competency.

### The Modelling of Autogenous Grinding ScienceDirect

Sep 01, 1989 The wear of balls is so small that ball mass can be regarded time independent and not to affect mill grinding behaviour or its selection function. Selection function is usually considered to be a function of mill filling (both ball and interstitial powder), ball size and mill speed. The latter two are constants in a given operation.
