Mineral processing - Wikipedia
Crushing, a form of comminution, one of the unit operations of mineral processing In the field of extractive metallurgy , mineral processing , also known as ore dressing , is the process of separating commercially valuable minerals from their ores .Comminution - Wikipedia,Comminution is the reduction of solid materials from one average particle size to a smaller average particle size, by crushing, grinding, cutting, vibrating, or other processes. In geology, it occurs naturally during faulting in the upper part of the Earth's crust. In industry, it is an important unit operation in mineral processing, ceramics, electronics, and other fields, accomplished with,Define comminution | Dictionary and Thesaurus,Comminution is a group of mineral processing techniques used in extractive metallurgy to reduce the particle sizes of rocks. Comminution processes are used to turn rocks into powder because subsequent processing generally requires finer particle sizes.
