Research data on modifying fine grinding in beneficiation processes are presented. New aspects of surfactant action are studied on oleic acid added in grinding circuit for Norilsk ore, 90% of its composition being silicate minerals. The feasibility to lower sliming and amorphization (defect-free grinding) of the crystal mineral structure is established.
