Metso Outotec to deliver comminution technology to Côté Gold Project
by David Fleschen
Metso Outotec was awarded an order for key comminution technology for IAMGOLD Corporation and Sumitomo Metal Mining’s joint venture, the Côté Gold Project at Gogama, in northeastern Ontario, Canada. The value of the order exceeds EUR 10 million, and it has been booked in Minerals’ Q1/2021 orders received.
Metso Outotec’s delivery consists of two energy-efficient Vertimill® 4500 grinding mills and one MP1250 cone crusher for the Côté Gold Project.
“Low energy and wear part consumption as well as process flexibility were decisive factors for the Côté Gold Project team when selecting the comminution equipment. Metso Outotec was consulted during the pre-feasibility study and supported IAMGOLD on several projects. IAMGOLD’s technical team had solid confidence in the Vertimill® technology, and they were also familiar with the high-performance capability of the MP crushers,” says Andy Lingenfelter, Vice President, Minerals Sales, North & Central America, Metso Outotec.
