dc.description.abstract Comminution involves crushing and grinding operations. The grinding operations use the traditional tumbling mills and stirred mills to reduce the ore to the required fineness. This thesis intends to investigate the influence of design and operating variables on the IsaMillTM specific energy and product size, when grinding UG2 platinum-bearing ore. The main objectives of this work were to study the effects of operating variables on specific energy consumption and product fineness, and to investigate IsaMillTM scale-up protocol. The experimental studies were conducted using the M4 IsaMillTM on a laboratory scale and the M10 000 IsaMillTM on an industrial scale. en_ZA
