A collaboration between the Oz Minerals Prominent Hill concentrator and Magotteaux to improve plant performance

In the mining business the cost of grinding media represents up to 40% of the total milling cost and therefore grinding media optimization has a direct impact on the concentrator’s bottom line. In the process of optimizing grinding media alloys, Magotteaux developed its own methodology which consists in a series of analyses, tests, calculations, evaluations and assist the concentrator in optimizing their processes.
