Outotec has secured a €15 million contract to deliver minerals processing technology for First Majestic Silver Corp’s mill optimization projects in Mexico.

The Outotec scope covers the design and delivery of an autogenous (AG) mill, counter current decantation (CCD) thickener and a tailings filter for the San Dimas Silver/Gold Mine, and thickeners and a tailings filter for the Santa Elena Silver/Gold Mine.

The deliveries are expected to take place in 2020 and 2021.

Outotec has previously supplied Outotec HIGmill high-intensity grinding mills to First Majestic.

“We are pleased to continue working with First Majestic in these projects. The energy efficient AG mill and environmentally sound thickeners and tailings filters will enable First Majestic to improve plant operations in a sustainable way,” said Paul Sohlberg, head of Outotec’s Minerals Processing business.
