If the particle size is too coarse there will be inadequate liberation, limiting recovery (and thus revenue) in the separation stage. If the grind is too fine, the grinding costs will exceed any increment in recovery (and may even reduce recovery depending on the separation process). A standard crushing and grinding circuit is shown in Figure 1. It is commonly referred to as a SABC circuit, for Semi …
