Osisko Mining Inc. has placed an order for grinding equipment and ancillaries from FLSmidth for its 100% owned Windfall gold project located in the Abitibi greenstone belt, Urban Township, Eeyou Istchee James Bay, Québec, Canada.
The order consists of a 7.3 m (24 ft) diameter x 3.4 m (11 ft) long gear-driven semi-autogenous grinding (SAG) mill and a 5.2 m (17 ft) diameter x 9.4 m (31 ft) long gear-driven ball mill. Current planning foresees installation and operation of the grinding mills in a SABC configuration. The grinding mills have a capacity of processing up to 176.6 dry tph, or 3900 tpd based on 92% availability. The equipment is expected to be delivered to the Windfall project in 2H22. Installation will follow pending successful receipt of all permits and authorisations.
John Burzynski, Chief Executive Officer of Osisko commented: “FLSmidth is a recognised global leader in grinding technologies with a long track record of providing high quality products, and we are looking forward to be working with them on our developing Windfall project. Securing these critical long lead time components of the grinding circuit is an important first step in solidifying detailed engineering for the Windfall plant. We continue to advance all aspects of work on Windfall including our environmental assessment and consultation with our host communities and look forward to additional near-term announcements regarding our infrastructure plans.”
