    The main problem with these harder ore types is that they hold up in the SAG mills, restricting throughput. The SAG mill feed is controlled by the mill weight, measured by 4 load cells on the mill bearing system. Therefore if the ore does not grind quickly enough in the SAG mills, the mill weight increases and the control system reduces feed to
