Minerals processing plants

From plant modules for communition or separation to complete beneficiation plants, Metso offers world-class technology for the beneficiation of a wide variety of ores, such as iron, copper, gold, lead, zinc and industrial minerals.

Every ore is different. Metso has the experience to match the right process, equipment and overall plant design for the optimum performance

The grade of ores continue to decline. The pressure for getting more out of existing mines continues to increase. The challenge is how to get the best performance from your investment, whether greenfield or brownfield. You need a partner who knows the process and has world-class equipment to make the most challenging results possible.

A mineral processing project delivered on time, on budget and with the designed performance is not the standard in mining – it is the exception. How do you make sure that your project is not another one that does not meet the goal? You need a partner who knows the process, the designs and has the experience to deliver them on time.

Delivering results for the mining industry

It all starts with process design. Metso’s team of experienced process engineers can evaluate the ore to provide an optimum flowsheet for maximum recovery and lowest total cost of ownership. In the process design phase, the Metso systems process engineers know exactly the capabilities of the Metso equipment to be supplied in the plant, making it possible to guarantee the best plant performance.

The Metso plant design team has decades of experience designing plants to be optimized for a low cost operation and ease of maintenance. Whether it is the correct feeding arrangement to the crushers or the use of gravity flow wherever possible, the plant is designed to get the best equipment performance. And as the OEM of the major equipment, maintenance access is done right.

The overall time of the project can be reduced by working with Metso. Key equipment is selected in the preliminary design phase. Foundation loads are known early because it is, after all, Metso equipment. And all the preliminary work goes straight to detail design.

The best way to start is to talk with Metso early. We can provide flowsheet ideas and solutions that match with our knowledge of the best performing equipment options – and costs. We are ready to talk with you about solutions, whether for a grinding module or a complete beneficiation plant.
