FLSmidth has signed a contract worth in excess of 75 million US$ with Minera Lumina Copper Chile for the supply of design, engineering, and process equipment for their Caserones copper and molybdenum plant in central Chile. Minera Lumina Copper Chile is jointly owned by Nippon Mining & Metals Co., Ltd. and Mitsui Mining & Smelting Co., Ltd. The Caserones plant will process around 105 000 t/d of primary and secondary copper ore. The scope of supply includes a primary crusher, cone crushers, SAG and ball mills, cyclones, flotation equipment and thickeners. Once detailed engineering is complete and final discharge points are defined, the conveyor and feeder belt systems, as well as pumps, will be added bringing the total order value to around 100 million US$. The order will contribute beneficially to FLSmidth‘s earnings until late 2012.
