Jul 01, 2018· A run-of-mine (ROM) ore milling circuit is used to grind incoming ore bearing precious minerals to within a specification, e.g. 70% of the product particles must be smaller than 75 μm. The fine product produced from the milling circuit allows for the separation of the precious minerals from the gangue material ( le Roux et al., 2013 ).

Mineral processing - Wikipedia

Crushing and grinding are the two primary comminution processes. Crushing is normally carried out on "run-of-mine" ore, while grinding (normally carried out after crushing) may be conducted on dry or slurried material. In comminution, the size reduction of particles is done by three types of forces: compression, impact and attrition.
