Metso will help you rise up to the challenges of the mining industry, including declining ore grades, high energy and production costs, water shortages, and stricter environmental regulations.

Metso has the expertise, capabilities and equipment portfolio to design, supply, and build state-of-the-art bulk ore sorting plants to meet the needs of most mining projects, with a fast and reliable ramp-up. Our global presence means that we can provide support to you worldwide during your plant's entire lifecycle.

High productivity and energy efficiency

Metso industry leading crushing, screening, conveying and feeding equipment are known for efficient processing while delivering sustainability benefits. Now, rejecting waste early in the process reduces the amount of energy required from the equipment. So the focus can be on the mineable ore tons, improving the energy efficiency.

With rejection of the waste material, this also increases productivity because the equipment is processing the mineable ore tons and not waste material.

Cost and resource efficiency

Through preconcentration there will be a reduction in operational costs from energy consumption, but also in haulage required for the material. 

Unlocking resources is also key. With reducing waste material being processed, the equipment becomes more available instead of processing the lower grade materials. 

Bulk ore sorting improves profitability and sustainability
Pre-concentration is more than an industry buzzword. Removing barren material early enough can bring significant savings, especially in today’s low-grade mining operations. It also reduces the environmental footprint of the mine due to lower energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions and water losses per ton of product.
