FLSmidth and Goldcorp to eliminate conventional Slurry Tailings Dams

FLSmidth believe that the target for the industry is to completely eliminate tailings dams, and to recirculate maximum water back to the process.

Together with the world’s third largest gold miner, Goldcorp, FLSmidth is co-developing EcoTails, a system for co-mingling dewatered tailings with waste rock in a continuous process. The system is expected dramatically improve tailings and waste rock disposal while economically processing mine waste and increasing water recovery and reuse by as much as 90 to 95%.

Metso enhances Assembly Capacity of Lokotrack Mobile Crushing Plants

In the future, motors will also be assembled next to the new Speedline 2 so that all components to be installed in Lokotrack equipment will be in the same hall.
Mobile Crushing Plants
The capacity of Metso's Tampere factories will be increased and occupational safety improved with the new production line for Lokotrack mobile crushing plants. The investment of approx. EUR 1 million will significantly shorten the delivery times of equipment models put into line assembly production. The construction work for the new line will already start during the summer, and the first new Lokotrack equipment would come out of the line in Q1 2018.
