:: Metso to Supply Mining Equipment to Mt Isa Mine in Australia

Metso Minerals will supply grinding, crushing and screening equipment to Xstrata Plc's Mt Isa Mine operation in Queensland, Australia. The value of the order is approximately EUR 20 million. The delivery will be completed by the end of 2007.

The order comprises a SAG mill with dual drive 2 x 5,750 kW and two ball mills with dual drives 2 x 5,750 kW each, a cone crusher and a discharge vibrating screen, complemented by installation services and spare parts. The equipment is for expanding the mine operation with a new lead and zinc concentrator plant.

With deposits in silver, lead, zinc and copper, Mt Isa mine is considered highly productive. Following this expansion it will become the world's third largest zinc mine producing 800,000 tonnes of zinc concentrate annually.
