Munn, 2006). Most of the comminution in the mineral processing in-dustry is done using tumbling mills, due to their capacity to handle large material ﬂows. A major drawback with tumbling mills is their low energy eﬃciency (Wills and Napier-Munn, 2006). Much of the energy is absorbed in low-impact contacts that do not break particles. A
