Metso Outotec to deliver modular crushing station, milling equipment and more to G Mining’s Tocantinzinho gold project

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.

Marathon Gold taps Metso Outotec for Valentine processing plant equipment

Marathon Gold has awarded Metso Outotec with orders for key processing equipment for the Valentine gold project in Newfoundland, Canada.

The combined order value of approximately €15 million ($14.9 million) has been booked in Minerals’ Sepetmber-quarter orders received.

“We chose Metso Outotec equipment because of their brand reputation, technology-oriented equipment, commitment to safety and environment, and their service footprint in Atlantic Canada,” Paolo Toscano, Vice President, Projects, Marathon Gold Corporation, said.

Metso Outotec’s scope of delivery consists of a VF Series™ grizzly feeder, a Nordberg® jaw crusher, Planet Positive Premier® SAG and ball mills, a Mill Reline Machine (MRM), vibrating screens and a high-rate tailings thickener with Reactorwell™ feed system.

Andy Lingenfelter, Vice President, Minerals Sales in North and Central America, added: “We are excited to work on the Valentine gold project with Marathon. We were able to align with the project’s key value drivers at an early stage and provide to-the-point technical support.

“Marathon has selected leading-class equipment for their gold production process, and they will also be able to benefit from our broad-based service organisation.”

An April 2021 feasibility study outlined an open-pit mining and conventional milling operation at Valentine with a 2.5 Mt/y processing rate over a 13-year mine life with a 31.5% after-tax internal rate of return and initial capital costs of C$305 million ($228 million). The project has estimated proven reserves of 1.4 Moz (29.68 Mt at 1.46 g/t) and probable reserves of 650,000 oz (17.38 Mt at 1.17 g/t).
