High-performance crushing and material handling equipment for diamond mine

M‌‌‌etso will deliver high-performance crushing and material handling equipment to the De Beers Group Venetia mine, located in Limpopo Province in South Africa. Initially, the Venetia mine was designed as an open-pit operation. In 2013, an underground extension project commenced with plans to start producing carats in 2022, climbing to full production in 2025 and extending the mine life to 2046. The customer approached Metso for the supply of two primary jaw crushers and a number of feeders. All the equipment will be installed underground, which is a very challenging installation, especially given the shaft constraints (dimensions) and weigh limitations for transportation underground.

 

The customer decided on Metso’s Nordberg® C Series™ jaw crusher range because the pinned and bolted design of the crusher allows for the disassembly. This enhances ease of transportation and installation, especially where there are critical space constraints as is the case with this project. The Metso apron feeders are used for extracting or feeding ores that are wet, sticky, dry or even frozen. The order was booked in Metso’s third-quarter 2019 orders received.
