Keywords:work index, gold ore, granites, comminution, modified bond's method
This report shows the work index of Filin Kokuwa Gold ore sample in Bauchi State, Nigeria. The “reference sample (granites)” were sourced from outcrops of granites around Toro town. The samples were crushed, ground, and pulverized using appropriate laboratory milling machine. 80% passing size for the gold ore and granites samples were obtained at 100 µm sieve size for the ball mill feeds and products, respectively. The work indexes of reference samples i.e. granites were used to calculate the work index of the Filin Kokuwa gold ore sample. The values of 13.277kWh/ton and 15.192kWh/ton were obtained respectively for the two different reference granites samples used and 14.21kWh/ton as their average which is the value of the work index of the Filin Kokuwa gold ore deposit. The energy required for grinding the ore was found to be 3.581kW.
