The order covers the complete provision of an entire section of the plant’s production line which entails the engineering, supply and commissioning of copper-gold-magnetite separation and dewatering equipment for a concentrator with a capacity of 10 million tonnes per year.
The main equipment to be supplied includes flotation cells, gravity concentrators, magnetic separators, pumps, cyclones, regrind mills, thickeners and filters as well as a complete plant automation system.
“The order is based on a close and successful relationship with this customer,” explained Manfred Schaffer, group executive vice president of FLSmidth’s Minerals Division. “By supplying this full minerals processing solution with all the core equipment, we are able to guarantee the performance of the complete processing island. We experience that these types of guarantees for comprehensive processing islands are increasingly sought after by our customers in the mining industry as a way to ensure optimal productivity and single source responsibility.”
