PRESS RELEASE: Metso will deliver flotation equipment to expansion projects by Almina, Somincor and other leading mining companies located on the Iberian Pyrite Belt as well as Saloro in Barruecopardo, western Spain. The orders range from small 15m3 units to large 300m3 cells.

With these recent orders, the company said that it is further strengthening its position as the largest supplier of flotation equipment in the Iberian mining market for the last two consecutive years. Also, Metso's global footprint in flotation equipment grew during the second half of 2017.

In addition to equipment, Metso's flotation offering also covers a range of services like installation, commissioning and training, as well as solutions to improve the metallurgical performance of both Metso and third-party equipment with advanced process control and froth cameras such as VisioFroth. Metso RCS flotation equipment is designed to ensure higher recovery and throughput as well as to reduce maintenance and energy costs.

Miguel Santos, head of mining sales development, west Europe, said: “We at Metso have been focusing not only on developing a market-leading equipment offering for flotation, but also on our capabilities to help our customers optimise the operation of their units. These new orders are clear affirmation that our customers recognise our expertise and cutting-edge technology development, and that this has been the right approach in solving their challenges. We are very committed to continue to find the best solutions for our customers processing minerals in Western Europe as well as globally.”
