FLSmidth has received an order worth $49m (DKK275m) from Detour Gold Corporation for the supply of equipment for its Detour Lake gold plant in north-eastern Ontario, Canada. The open pit plant will have a capacity of 55,000t/day. The scope of the supply includes two SAG mills, two ball mills and one gyratory crusher.
“Canada offers numerous opportunities for minerals extraction and processing of gold, copper and other metals. We are therefore very happy to have received this order, which further strengthens our presence and position in the country as a one source solutions provider,” FLSmidth Group CEO Jørgen Huno Rasmussen comments.
The contract will contribute beneficially to FLSmidth’s earnings until the last equipment has been supplied in late-2011.
