Comminution – Process Design & Evaluation

OMC offer clients complete process design and optimisation services in all facets of mineral processing worldwide

OMC provides detailed information regarding comminution circuits for greenfield and expansion projects. All new design projects are completed with feed back from the client to ensure that the information provided is accurate and consistent with all other aspects of the total circuit design.


This work is often undertaken as part of an engineering study with the intensity of detail regulated to the level of study (scoping study, pre-feasibility, definitive or bankable feasibility or a detailed design).


With a tailored and cost effective approach to meeting client objectives, OMC is equipped to provide an extensive range of process design and evaluation services to our clients, including:


  • Circuit selection
  • Prediction of grinding efficiency
  • Major equipment selection
  • Mining schedule capacity modelling
  • Process flow diagrams
  • Circuit mass balance
  • Design criteria
  • Comparative comminution circuit option studies
  • Engineering design brief
  • Operating philosophy
