FLSmidth has been chosen to supply the full equipment and processing flowsheet, including ore leaching, for Sabina Gold & Silver's Goose gold mine in the West Kitikmeot region of Nunavut.
The order is valued at approximately US$39 million and was booked in the second quarter of 2022. The equipment is due to be delivered in the middle of 2023, ahead of the mine start-up date in the first quarter of 2025.
FLSmidth will supply the jaw crusher, Raptor cone crushers, ball mill, VXP-stirred secondary mill and Krebs cyclones, pumps as well as screens, feeders and Knelson gravity concentrators. The order also includes equipment for pre-oxidation and leaching; carbon-in-pulp (CIP) extraction; absorption, desorption and refining (ADR); and detoxification.
In addition, Sabina is progressing contract negotiations with FLSmidth for commissioning support, operational readiness, site training, an optimized spare management strategy, as well as a performance guarantee for the process equipment.
“We are pleased to have these critical technologies procured with a vendor that has a proven track record for providing equipment and support to remote projects around the world,” Bruce McLeod, president and CEO of Sabina, said. “ We look forward to receiving this equipment for installation over the next two years and to working with FLSmidth as we advance to become a mid-tier gold producer.”
