Sinosteel will supply components for a mineral processing plant for CuDeco‘s Rocklands Group copper project in north-west Queensland, Australia.

Under the agreement, Sinosteel will source the equipment from all over the globe and arrange shipping to the Port of Townsville.

Sinosteel will also supply water treatment and equipment for the dewatering of tailings and return process water.

The new plant with a capacity of three million tons per annum, will include circuits for native copper metal recovery and flotation circuits for the supergene and primary sulphide zones.

The process plant for the native copper circuit will feature high-pressure grinding rolls (HPGR) and will be fully computerised and automated.
