The KB 54-67 gyratory crusher will form part of the Tanami Expansion 2 project. Financial details were not disclosed.

TE2 will expand the current mining operation, located 560 kilometres northwest of Alice Springs, by accessing the ore at depth to increase production.

"We continue to develop our machines through our continual R&D process and client feedback," said Johann Rinnhofer, CEO of thyssenkrupp's mining business in Australia. "This enables us to improve the strength and reliability of our machines which our clients benefit from with machine availability and longevity."

The gyratory crusher will have 450 KiloWatt of power installed and incorporate the latest design for servicing major components via the top of the machine. 

Thyssenkrupp said this is the first such crusher it is supplying to Newmont, but it has already sold 21 gyratory crushers to the Australian market in recent years. It announced an order for Fortescue Metals Group's Iron Bridge magnetite project in Western Australia in April.
