PRESS RELEASE: The order value, over €10 million (US$11.8 million), has been booked in Outotec's 2017 December quarter order intake. 

The mills ordered for the project are a semi autogenous mill and a ball mill, with associated ancillaries and installation supervisory services. Equipment will be delivered at end of 2018, for commissioning in early 2019.

Kimmo Kontola, head of Outotec's minerals processing business unit, said: “We are pleased that our customer could continue this project for which we did basic engineering already in the earlier phase. The equipment supply is expected to contribute to extending the life of mine significantly.”
