FLSmidth has been chosen to supply the SAG mills, ball mills and cyclones to Josemaria Resources’ copper-gold project in the San Juan Province of Argentina. FLSmidth will deliver the three gearless SAG mills, three gearless ball mills and cyclones to the 150 000 t/d site by late-2023. FLSmidth was chosen to deliver the equipment due to the high reliability and efficient performance of our SAG and ball mill technologies.
The Josemaria open-pit mine is a high-grade copper-gold porphyry project. It is located in Argentina some 450 km from San Juan, capital city of the province, in an important and emerging copper mining district. It has an anticipated mine life of 19 years. “The order of SAG mills, ball mills and cyclones to the Josemaria Resources copper-gold project in Argentina is very positive news for FLSmidth. It illustrates great confidence in FLSmidth and emphasises the proven performance and productivity of our high-end solutions. The efficiency of the equipment will meet our customer promise to deliver sustainable productivity to the copper and gold mining industry,” comments Mikko Keto, Group CEO and Mining President at FLSmidth.
