#### Modelling SAG milling power and specific energy ... ScienceDirect

Usually, tumbling mills power equations have been derivate from mechanics as the product of torque and rotational speed. Models for the prediction of the power drawn by ball, semiautogenous and fully autogenous mills have been developed and cited in the technical literature (Turner, 1982, Austin, 1990, Moys, 1993, Morrell, 1996).
