It is known that ball milling is an energy intensive process and great efforts have been made For the design of grinding circuits in mineral process ing volume for cement plants. On the other hand, Metzger. M.J. et al. 2009 using silica
Ball milling is an energyintensive unit operation and usually consumes a major proportion of the power drawn by a typical mineral processing plant. A.L. Mular, G.V. Jergensen II Eds., Design and Installation of Comminution Circuits,
