Grinding circuits are fed at a controlled rate from the stockpile or bins holding the crusher plant product. There may be a number of grinding circuits in parallel, each circuit taking a definite fraction of the feed. An example is the Highland Valley Cu/Mo plant with five parallel grinding lines (Chapter 12 ).
The grinding circuit can be optimized by implementing in-line density meters. These provide real-time density measurement in different applications and can be combined with advanced process control to improve the efficiency of the process.

Grinding, i.e. reducing the particle size of mined ore, is often the bottleneck of the mining concentrating process. Thus, even small improvements may lead to large increases in profit. The goal of the grinding circuit is two-sided; to maximize the throughput of ore, and minimize the resulting particle size of the ground ore within some acceptable range.
