II. IMPORTANCE OF MINERALOGY IN MINERAL PROCESSING

Insufficient grinding may result in loss of valuable minerals in the tailings; over grinding wastes energy and may produce slimes that are difficult to treat. The nature of the boundaries between intergrown particles will show whether or not the rupturing of larger particles during grinding is likely to occur at grain boundaries.
