12/04/2021

Metso Outotec has signed a contract to deliver all of the main process technologies for Sandfire Resources’ flagship Motheo copper-silver concentrator in Botswana. The order value of approximately EUR 17 million was booked in the Minerals segment’s Q1/2021 orders received.

The 3.2 million tonnes per annum greenfield plant will be built in the Kalahari copper belt in Botswana, with the potential to expand to 5.2 million tonnes per annum in the future. Metso Outotec will deliver all key minerals processing equipment including gyratory and pebble crushers, apron feeders, semi-autogenous (SAG) mill and the associated reline machine, TankCell® flotation cells, Vertimill® fine grinding mill, high rate thickeners, and a pressure filter. Additionally, spare parts and supervisory services will be supplied to support commissioning and plant ramp up. Delivery will take place during 2021 and 2022, and the plant is expected to start production in late 2022 or early 2023.

“We are pleased to continue our strategic partnership with Sandfire Resources. We have worked with Sandfire in the past and are very grateful to be selected again for their flagship Motheo project. Our proven proprietary and sustainable technologies will support Sandfire with achieving their international growth and diversification strategy,” says Kai Rönnberg, Vice President, Minerals Sales, Asia Pacific at Metso Outotec.
