In-pit crush and convey solutions - Redefining IPCC productivity

Mining operations are impacted by declining head grades. More material needs to be moved from greater depths to maintain concentrate production levels. This affects productivity and energy consumption, which directly correlates to the mine’s profitability and sustainability.

To better meet these challenges, Metso in-pit crush and convey (IPCC) solutions provide an integrated solution consisting of crushing, conveying, and stacking equipment combined with IPCC planning and life cycle services. The offering has been designed to ensure the highest productivity, energy efficiency, as well as maintainability.

Metso IPCC solutions are also a part of the Planet Positive portfolio.

Bulk ore sorting solutions
Metso combines our industry leading crushing solutions and expertise with bulk ore sorting technology to increase the volume of mineable tons, which increases resource availability, productivity and energy efficiency for the mining operation.
IPCC Planning Services
IPCC Planning Services

We understand no two IPCC projects are alike, so we treat them that way from beginning to execution. Metso's IPCC Planning Services team has a track record of delivering customized and comprehensive feasibility studies, and utilizes advanced engineering tools to increase the speed of project definition and certainty of outcome. Our services break down into 3 stages: 

  • AssessTrade-off study to identify value
  • Analyze: Integrated mine planning and equipment design to maximize value
  • Advance: Detailed execution program ready for delivery

With the 3 stage approach, we deliver a quick and efficient project definition. 


Metso's IPCC technology portfolio includes crushing, conveying and stacking equipment. With our IPCC solutions being modular. When working with our team we develop your optimal solution based on your operational goals while using proven technology. 

  • Crushing: Foresight™ semi-mobile primary gyratory (SMPG), Lokotrack® mobile solutions
  • Conveying: Overland, mobile, relocatable, shiftable
  • Stacking: Fixed and rail mounted stackers (Spreaders and mobile stacking bridges also available - Read more about co-operation agreement)



Metso services support is unmatched by delivering either pre-designed or customizable packages to deliver performance outcomes. Our aim is not only deliver a successful IPCC operation, but then also keep it running at an optimal level. Our featured services are:

  • Life Cycle Services (LCS)
  • Off site pre-assembly
  • On site assembly
  • Process optimization
  • Connected analytics
Metso wins order for Foresight™ semi-mobile primary gyratory crushing plant at Codelco’s Radomiro Tomic operation
Foresight™ semi-mobile primary gyratory (SMPG) station

The Metso Foresight™ SMPG station are high capacity and modular solutions that are a key highlight in our IPCC designs.

  • SmartStation features for optimal processing, reducing wear and plant height whilst autonomously controlling material size
  • Improving maintainability through improved crusher access and plant area isolation
  • Reduce height and downtime with SMPG feeder
  • Variable capacities with different crushers and truck sizes

The Foresight™ SMPG station includes our Superior™ MKIII primary gyratory crusher. This brings additional benefits such as reduced downtime by up to 70%, and increased capacities by up to 30%.

Overland conveyors
Overland conveyors

Metso overland solutions uses our mining industry experience and knowledge to develop economic and reliable solutions based on customer needs. This involves an end to end solution including concept studies, project development, project execution and post-installation services and maintenance.

  • Minimize energy consumption due to our energy savings idlers (ESI), which can reduce power required by up to 30%.
  • Quick installation and are built for ease of maintenance. Thus, reducing the time required for start-up and downtime for maintenance.
  • The overland conveyor solutions allows for capacities up to 20,000 tons per hour.
