The Bond Ball Mill Grindability Test (Bond, 1952, 1961) gives the Bond Ball Mill Work Index. This Index expresses the resistance of a material to ball milling; the higher the value of the Bond Ball Mill Work Index, the more difficult it is to grind the material using a ball mill. This Index is widely used in the mineral industry for:
