This week, at one of the world’s largest mining tradeshows, MINExpo, FLSmidth and Goldcorp/New Gold, Inc. signed an agreement for engineering services for key technologies for the El Morro gold/copper project in Chile. The asset, El Morro, is jointly owned by Goldcorp/New Gold, Inc.
As previously announced by Goldcorp/New Gold, El Morro site development and construction activities have been suspended since April 30, 2012, pending the correction by the Chilean environmental permitting authority (the Servicio de Evaluación Ambiental, or SEA) of certain deficiencies specifically identified by a decision of the Antofogasta Court of Appeals.
Other activities at the FLSmidth booth include free presentations by mineral processing and material handling experts. The half hour presentations will focus on solutions and technologies to make mining operations more efficient. The FLSmidth booth is in the Central Hall, Section One, number 4253. MIN-Expo runs today through 26 September.
