An Enduron® HPGR with rolls measuring 2.4 m x 2.4 m (length : diameter) will be installed at IAMGOLD's Côté Gold Project. This will be the largest HPGR in Canada and the largest in the world in a gold hard rock application. Weir Minerals’ Enduron® HPGR design is perfectly suited to IAMGOLD’s Côté Gold operations to achieve industry-leading particle size reduction and with the lowest total operating costs:

·       Enduron® HPGR is a proven HPGR with the mechanical design to support efficient and durable skewing thanks to its unique bearing arrangement and control philosophy

·       Enduron® HPGR has a roll diameter-width ratio which maximizes throughput at the desired product grind

·       Enduron® HPGR self-adjusting cheek plates provide equal sealing distance as flanges at minimum costs

·       Enduron® HPGR is one of the market leaders in large format, high tonnage hard rock HPGR

Tim Lundquist, HPGR Regional Sales Manager North America: “Our Enduron® HPGR design will create energy savings of up to 40 % compared to an equivalent SABC comminution circuit, while also significantly reducing the need for downstream grinding media. This power and grinding media savings will optimize total ownership cost and also account for a significant reduction in carbon emissions”.

Weir Minerals prides itself in being close to its customers at all times. The Weir Minerals Canada team and purpose-built facilities will be providing full HPGR service for the Côté Gold operations.
