Introduction to Mineral Processing or Beneficiation
Jan 12, 2018 This process of size reduction is called comminution. The crushing and grinding process will produce a range of particles with varying degrees of liberation (Figure 2). Any particles that exceed a target size required for physical separation or chemical extraction are returned to the crushing or the grinding circuit.
