Mar 21, 2007 As a result, mines have shifted their emphasis in optimization from ball mills to SAG mills. The rock load in the mill essentially depends on ore characteristics and the discharge rate of broken particles through the discharge end. The discharge rate depends on how efficiently the discharge pump (grate and pulp lifters) operates.
