Metso hydrocyclones for gold project in northern Canada

Metso sold one hydrocyclone cluster with 3 MHCTM 250 hydrocyclones and a VTM 500 Vertimill® grinding mill to Agnico Eagle for its Meliadine gold project in Nunavut Territory, northern Canada. The Meliadine property covers more than 80 km of a greenstone belt, and is under development as an underground and open pit mine and mill operation for startup in 2019. Meliadine is Agnico Eagle’s largest development project based on reserves and resources. The delivery is scheduled for Q1 2018, and the equipment will be used for regrind application of gold ore.

 

“Our team carried out a thorough technology and total cost of ownership review for this special application,” said Daniel Seguin, Engineering Manager at Agnico Eagle. “The combination of the Vertimill 500 grinding mill and the MHC 250 hydrocyclones provides us with a total comminution solution. The remoteness of the Meliadine site placed added value in the low media consumption associated with the Metso VTM technology and its ability to maintain a stable product across a significant range of feed variations."
