The paper presents experimental data on the effects of humidity on the specific energy intensity of dolomite crushing at the Internationalnaya diamond mine of PJSC AK ALROSA. A previously developed methodology was used to assess the effects of dolomite saturation with distilled water and a 5 % salt solution (NaCl) on the energy intensity of its crushing in the temperature range of +20 to –30 °C. It has been experimentally established that at positive temperatures the specific energy intensity of crushing water- and salt-saturated dolomite samples is 30–40 % lower than in the air-dry state. At lower negative temperatures, the energy intensity of the crushing process starts to increase sharply and is more than twice as high at –30 °C as the energy intensity of crushing air-dry samples. At the same time, the specific energy consumption for crushing air-dry samples monotonically increases with lower temperatures and is 40 % higher at –30 °C than the energy consumption at a positive temperature. For dolomite samples saturated with a 5 % NaCl solution, the energy intensity of crushing at –5 °C is 45 % below that of the air-dry state. At this negative temperature and saturation values, dolomite has a local minimum energy consumption, as established previously for other rocks. A further decrease in temperatures leads to higher specific energy intensities of crushing salt-saturated dolomite samples. The data obtained indicate a significant effect of humidity and medium composition on the specific energy intensity of crushing dolomite samples from the Internationalnaya diamond mine in both positive and negative temperature ranges.
