Metso to deliver separation equipment to Zambian copper mine

Canada’s First Quantum Minerals has placed an order worth more than €20 million with Metso for the delivery of minerals processing equipment to its Kansanshi copper mine S3 expansion in Zambia.

Metso’s scope of delivery includes TankCell e630 and TankCell e300 mechanical flotation cells, high-intensity Concorde Cell units, ColumnCell units, HRT thickeners and a clarifyer.

Most of the separation equipment is part of Metso’s Planet Positive offering.

“Kansanshi’s flotation flowsheet combines the well-proven, energy efficient TankCell flotation cells with the new Concorde Cell, unlocking the potential for further improved flotation performance. Concorde Cell high-intensity, forced-air pneumatic flotation cells allow operations to enhance fine and ultrafine particle selectivity,” says Antti Rinne, vice president, Flotation, at Metso.
