The Metso Outotec delivery includes the modular VSF®X solvent extraction plant and the main process equipment for the electrowinning plant. “We are very excited to have purchased the key SX/EW process equipment from Metso Outotec, one of the world leaders in mineral processing and hydrometallurgical technologies. The VSF®X technology is ideally suited for our Florence Copper Project, which is set to become one of the most energy-efficient and low-carbon copper producers in the world. The modular nature of the equipment will reduce construction time and allow Florence to commence copper production quicker than with other technologies available,” says Stuart McDonald, President and CEO of Taseko Mines.

“We are looking forward to working with Taseko Mines on the Florence Copper Project. The energy-efficient VSF®X solvent extraction plant, which is part of our Planet Positive product range, reduces emissions and is safe to operate. The Florence Copper Project will become an important new reference for Metso Outotec in the US copper market as a supplier of a complete production plant that uses solvent extraction and electrowinning technology for copper recovery,” says Jari Ålgars, President of the Metals business area at Metso Outotec.
