As ore mines ramp up and come on stream, the total number of active surface machines (including trucks, excavators, shovels, loaders, graders and dozers) is forecast to rise from 141,470 in 2020 to 167,367 by 2025. This will be a CAGR of 3.4% from 2020 to 2025. The largest contributor to this growth is expected to be trucks, particularly smaller-sized trucks with shorter lifespans, used extensively in parts of Asia Pacific. Underground mining equipment is similarly expected to see a CAGR of 2.3% in this same time frame, with the number of mining trucks and loaders/LHDs in active underground mines expected to rise to 19,853 by 2025. GlobalData’s extensive mine-site research and equipment models have been used to build a complete view of mobile mining equipment populations globally for trucks, loaders, graders, dozers, excavators and shovels. This report includes informative breakdowns by each major region and key mining country, and also by major commodity.

Located in the Abitibi greenstone belt, Urban Township, Eeyou Istchee James Bay, Québec, the Windfall gold project consists of 285 individual claims covering an area of 12,467ha.

FLSmidth will be responsible for the supply of gear-driven semi-autogenous grinding (SAG) mill and a long gear-driven ball mill for the project.

Planned to be delivered in the second half of 2022, the grinding mills have processing capacity of up to 176.6 dry tonnes per hour, or 3,900 tonnes per day based on 92% availability.

Installation of the grinding mills are subject to securing all permits and authorisations.

Osisko Mining plans to install and operate the grinding mills in a SABC configuration, where the SAG and ball mill are in closed circuit.

Osisko CEO John Burzynski said: “FLSmidth is a recognized global leader in grinding technologies with a long track record of providing high quality products, and we are looking forward to be working with them on our developing Windfall project.

“Securing these critical long lead time components of the grinding circuit is an important first step in solidifying detailed engineering for the Windfall plant.

“We continue to advance all aspects of work on Windfall including our environmental assessment and consultation with our host communities and look forward to additional near-term announcements regarding our infrastructure plans.”

Said to be one of the highest-grade resource-stage gold projects in Canada, the Windfall gold deposit has mineralisation in three principal zones including Lynx, Main Zone, and Underdog.
