Outotec has signed a contract with Kazakhstan’s largest gold miner RG Gold for the delivery of two grinding mills for the Raygorodok gold mine in northern Kazakhstan. The contract price is not disclosed, but deliveries with similar scope are typically worth approximately EUR 10 million. The order has been booked in Outotec’s 2020 first quarter order intake.
Outotec’s delivery includes two ball mills with associated ancillaries and spare parts to the customer’s carbon-in-leach plant expansion project. The ball mills feature the newly released Outotec® Polymer Hydrostatic Shoe Bearing (HSB) system, which improves grinding mill availability and simplify maintenance. Deliveries are scheduled for 2021.
The Raygorodok gold deposit is one of the largest gold deposits in Kazakhstan with 6 million ounces of estimated reserves.
“We are committed to working closely with our customers to keep the mining industry moving even during these exceptional times," says Paul Sohlberg, head of Outotec’s Minerals Processing business.
