Metso Minerals will supply cone crushers to Codelco, a Chilean national mining company, for the expansion of its Andina Division’s Los Andes project in Chile.
The start-up for the crushers is scheduled for the second quarter of 2009. The value of this order is approximately EUR 7 million. The order is included in Metso’s third quarter order backlog and comprises a secondary cone crusher and two tertiary cone crushers. Once in full operation, the project will be able to process approximately 9,125,000 metric tons of ore annually.
Producing over 1.63 million tons of copper annually, Codelco employs more than 16,000 people. In 2006, its sales reached USD 13 billion.
