Fluor performed design, engineering, procurement and construction on the silver, lead, zinc concentrator at Mount Isa Mines' NW Queensland mine.
The plant included a reclaim tunnel, coarse ore conveying, grinding, flotation, thickening, concentrate storage and loadout.
- Coarse ore from a 4,500t live stockpile is fed to the SAG mill feed conveyor by four plate feeders controlled by a weightometer.
- The 5m x 6.7m grate discharge SAG mill could be converted to a 1,600,000 t/a ball mill in a future expansion.
- An existing ball mill and cyclone cluster were relocated from the Mount Isa Copper Concentrator for use in this plant.
