Outotec process technology selected for Mexican copper concentrator

Outotec will deliver proprietary process equipment including 54 Outotec TankCell flotation cells in different sizes, four Outotec Larox filters, four PSI particle size analyzers and two COURIER on-line analyzers as well as a sampling system.

The mining technology company will also supervise the installation, and provide commissioning and start-up services. Deliveries are scheduled to be completed in early 2013.

The Buenavista del Cobre (formerly Cananea) concentrator was restarted in 2010 and has a processing capacity of 70 000 tonnes of ore per day. The second concentrator, which is scheduled to be commissioned in the second half of 2013, will add 100 000 tonnes per day of capacity.
