FLSmidth Southeast Asia copper-gold mine order includes SAG and ball mills plus CCD, tailings & filtrate thickeners

FLSmidth says it has been chosen to supply a range of mineral processing equipment for a large, established copper-gold mine in Southeast Asia. The equipment, some of the largest in the world, will allow the mine to increase its process capacity. The order was booked in Q1 2022 and is valued at approximately DKK360 million.

Under the agreement, FLSmidth will supply both the mills and thickeners for the project. The equipment includes two gearless SAG mills and two gearless ball mills plus three CCD thickeners, two tailings thickeners and one filtrate thickener.

“This is a welcomed order as it underlines our leading position in the copper and gold mining arena when it comes to productivity and throughput. The order for SAG mills, ball mills and thickeners highlights our strength in both comminution and separation. As a key equipment provider, we will ensure optimised throughput and the efficient commissioning of the equipment in an environmentally friendly manner. We are now looking forward to helping the customer increase its capacity and production of copper, a key mineral in the clean energy transition,” comments Mikko Keto, Group CEO and Mining President at FLSmidth.
