The Metso delivery consists of high-capacity Nordberg MP1250 secondary cone crushers, MF Series vibrating screens and Vertimill VTM1500 regrinding mills.

For the flotation and separation circuit, Metso will supply multiple TankCell and ColumnCell flotation cells featuring several of the largest available 630 m³ TankCell units, as well as HCTTM High Compression tailing thickeners.

Metso’s scope also includes four MHC hydrocyclone clusters, two of which will be among the largest in the world.

“Working together with the customer and the engineering company on an open collaborative model has been an extraordinary experience,” says Fernando Samanez, Vice President, Minerals Sales for South America at Metso. “The model enhanced the efficiency of the engineering process and contributed to the alignment of all parties on the targets set by the end customer. This will be a benchmark to be followed in similar projects all over the world.”
