Zero water mining

Based on the high energy and water consumption of the grinding process, the efficiency was investigated in regard to fines.

The project investigates two things; the impact that fine material has on the energy requirements and the ability to reach desired particle size distributions, this was compared for a hard mineral (quartz) to a soft mineral (chalcopyrite).
