Outotec delivers equipment for gold mining in Senegal
Finland-based technology company Outotec has signed a contract with an Australian engineering firm Lycopodium Minerals.
Outotec will deliver process equipment to a concentrator in Mako, Senegal. The Mako mining project is a flagship of the international gold exploration company Toro Gold Limited.
The approximately 10-million-euro order includes the design and delivery of an eight megawatt semi-autogenous grinding mill, a mill reline machine and a high rate thickener, as well as services including spare parts.
“We are pleased to be chosen to deliver our advanced process equipment to the new Mako plant,” says Kalle Härkki, head of Outotec’s Minerals Processing Business Unit. “This order sees the continuation of Outotec’s long relationship with Lycopodium to successfully deliver process equipment for gold projects in West Africa.”
The new concentrator will process 1.8 million tonnes of ore annually from local deposits.
