This article presents the results of theoretical and experimental studies on the processes of destruction ore in wet self-grinding mills under the influence of the aquatic environment on it. The equivalent circuit for determining the stress-strain state of a large piece (ball) exposed to the load at an angle of repose of the material in motion are justified. A uniformly distributed pressure acts on the body of arbitrary shape, depending on the hydrostatic pressure of the pulp inside the drum

It is assumed that a large piece has the shape of a sphere with a uniform structure, but in some of its parts there are cavities filled with an incompressible fluid. Under the action of these forces inside the cavity wedging effects of water occur, the effect of which on the strength ores depends on the expansion force and the angle of the micro crack. The experimental researches are done under laboratory and industrial conditions. It was established that the disintegration of kimberlitic ore in MMC is significantly influenced by the characteristics of the aquatic environment pH and Eh, the values of which vary from 3.2 to 7.0 and from -500 to +1020 mV.
