6 E&MJ • JUNE 2019 COMPANY PROFILE-PAID ADVERTISEMENT Driven by the changing demands and com- plexities you face in the modern mining industry, FLSmidth's focus is to deliver sus- tainable productivity, through innovative prod- ucts, smart/digital solutions and unmatched mining expertise. Your full flowsheet partner for premium pro- ducts, innovative solutions and aftermarket service From in-pit crushing and conveying to tail- ings management, you can access the full flowsheet of productivity-enhancing mineral processing and material handling technology and equipment through FLSmidth. Why does that matter? Well, we know your challenges include increasing production and output, while lowering your operating costs and environmental impact. So we built our unique combination of engineering, products and services to help you achieve just that. As your partner in mining, our staff of 11,700 – based in 80 offices around the globe – is on hand to bring over 135 years of FLSmidth experience, innovation and process know-how to you, whenever, wherever you need it. Within the mining value chain, FLSmidth is mostly active in material handling, com- minution, materials testing and separation. Our core strengths are reflected in this mar- ket-leading product range, our ability to implement, manage and maintain projects, and our unmatched full flowsheet offering. We offer you a complete array of products, systems and services, ranging from single engineered or standardised equipment, such as crushers, ball mills, pumps, gravity con- centrators, thickeners and flotation cells to bundled equipment, full production plants, wear parts, aftermarket service and mainte- nance solutions. This complete coverage means we can increase your productivity across the complete pit-to-plant operation by integrating upstream mining with downstream processing. It also means easier implementation of smart, digital solutions across the flowsheet so that they can really benefit your bottom line. Some highlights from FLSmidth's minerals coverage include: Tailings Management We know every mine site has unique con- siderations, such as water costs, permitting and stability issues. So we work with you to determine the tailings solution that's right for your unique mining conditions and local regulations. We are the only original equipment man- ufacturer with the ability to provide a com- prehensive tailings solution to suit any mine site. We offer complete dewatering, material handling and co-mingling solutions, such as EcoTails ® , in-house. We also provide all the required testing to ensure we supply the most economic tailings solution on a site-by- site basis. Our solutions include: sand dam tailings, thickened tailings, paste tailings, paste backfill for underground mines, filtered tailings or co-mingled tailings. Metallurgical Testing Your operations can benefit vastly from our valuable experience in precious metals, base metals and industrial minerals. We provide testing and ore characterisation services that include ore amenability, process develop- ment, flowsheet layout and plant design to maximise operational efficiency. In 2019, we strengthened massively in this area. Firstly, we finalised the purchase of the hydrometal- lurgical and mineral processing capabilities of AuTec from Barrick Gold Corp, to bolster our capabilities in piloting, testing and the char- acterisation of simple to the most complex ores, including refractory gold. We also took over IMP Automation Group during 2019. This means we can give you better data on your ore, helping to optimise your processing. With this acquisition, our flowsheet of laboratory solutions within min- ing and minerals processing is complete – something of increasing importance as declin- ing ore grades make it necessary to increase productivity by process optimisation. Comminution As a world-class supplier of comminution equipment, you get more than a century of experience in crushing and grinding with FLSmidth. Our premium crushers employ the latest engineering expertise and technology, making them safer and easier to maintain. In fact, the TS Crusher has been proven to save up to 120 man-hours of maintenance per year, allowing more time for production. This robust crushing and milling equipment, com- bined with FLSmidth's vibrating screens and Krebs hydrocyclones and pumps, results in an efficient and reliable comminution circuit. Flotation FLSmidth is the renowned pioneer of mining flotation, with more than 53,000 flotation cell installations around the world. The variety of mechanism options offered provide great- er flexibility for maximum recovery of both coarse and fine particles. Precious Metals Recovery Specialised equipment from FLSmidth for the processing of gold, silver and other pre- cious metals includes complete Merrill Crowe plants, carbon ADR plants and precious metal refineries, as well as the Knelson Concentrator – the leader in gravity recovery since 1978. We will soon reach the milestones of a demon- stration-scale plant for Rapid Oxidative Leach process (ROL), which makes it possible to develop mineral deposits containing arsenic for recovery of copper, gold, and silver, while complying with stringent environmental reg- ulations. ROL also allows for recovery from waste streams, and piles containing arsenic can be processed on site. Did you know?
