High-capacity grinding milling coming to Bomboré Gold Mine

Metso, a provider of sustainable technologies and solutions for the aggregates, minerals processing and metals refining industries, has received an order for an 18MW SAG mill

The mill was requested by Orezone Gold Corporation for the Phase II Expansion at the Bomboré Gold Mine in Burkina Faso. 

“The Premier SAG (semi autogenous) mill to be delivered to Bomboré is part of our Planet Positive offering thanks to its energy efficiency,” explained Christoph Hoetzel, SVP, grinding business line at Metso. “This high-capacity SAG mill, which will be one of the largest gear driven mills installed in Africa, is based on proven technology. It features an efficient LSS drive, and a Polymer Hydrostatic Shoe Bearing (HSB) system, which significantly improves radial and axial bearing reliability and longevity. It is also equipped with the Metso MillSense mill charge sensor system, which helps to stabilise and optimise the grinding process to ensure reliable operation and increased throughput.”

Metso’s grinding mills – including the Premier and Select – can be easily integrated into the company’s mill relining equipment and are supported by its extensive services network to ensure optimisation during the mills’ lifetime.

Earlier this year, Metso rebranded from Metso Outotec in a bid to more clearly define its focus of enabling sustainable modern life and transforming the industry. Click here to learn more.
