Metso Outotec was awarded an order for key comminution technology for IAMGOLD Corporation and Sumitomo Metal Mining’s joint venture, the Côté Gold Project at Gogama, in northeastern Ontario.

Metso Outotec’s delivery consists of two energy-efficient Vertimill 4500 grinding mills and one MP1250 cone crusher for the Côté Gold Project.

“Low energy and wear part consumption as well as process flexibility were decisive factors for the Côté Gold Project team when selecting the comminution equipment. Metso Outotec was consulted during the pre-feasibility study and supported IAMGOLD on several projects. IAMGOLD’s technical team had solid confidence in the Vertimill technology, and they were also familiar with the high-performance capability of the MP crushers,” says Andy Lingenfelter, vice-president, minerals sales, North & Central America, Metso Outotec.
