Metso Outotec has been awarded equipment orders by G Mining Ventures Corporation for the company’s flagship asset, the Tocantinzinho gold project, in Para State, Brazil.
The value of the orders is approximately €20 million ($19.7 million).
Metso Outotec’s scope of delivery to the greenfield project consists of a compact aggregates plant and the key process equipment for the beneficiation plant from Metso Outotec’s Planet Positive offering. Included are, for example, a modular FIT™ crushing station, Premier™ SAG and ball mills, an MRM Mill Reline Machine and High Rate Thickeners.
“We are delighted to be part of this important project,” Fernando Samanez, Minerals Sales Director for Metso Outotec in South America, said. “G Mining has a superb team and the Tocantinzinho project is implementing efficient and sustainable technology combined with low operating and life-cycle costs. We are glad to be building another success with our FIT crushing station concept and also delivering the first MRM Mill Reline Machine in Brazil.”
On September 12, the G Mining Board gave official signoff for construction of Tocantinzinho , which, according to an updated feasibility study from earlier this year, will have an average milling rate of 4.6 Mt/y for average annual gold output of 175,000 oz.
