In recent years, the trend has been towards larger-sized SAG mills with diameters of 10.4 m (34 ft) and above, with the largest being 12.2 m (40 ft) in

SAG Mill Ball Sizing Grinding & Classification Circuits

2021-11-22  With high aspect ratio SAG mills total charge to ball charge ratio should be greater than 2 (up to 2.5) for a coarse mill feed (say F80 > 110 mm). If the mill feed size is fine, say 50 mm or 30 mm, then you are looking at a total charge to ball charge ratio of about 1.5-1.6.
