Almina Minas do Alentejo S.A. is proceeding with the preparations to upgrade the copper and zinc concentrator at their Almina mine in Aljustrel, in the Iberian pyrite belt in Portugal. The company placed an order with Metso as the key equipment supplier for this project in 1Q23.

Metso has now completed the basic engineering of the grinding island. Delivery of the concentrator plant equipment will take place around the end of 2Q24, with the project expected to be commissioning by the end of the 1Q25.

“Collaboration between Almina Minas do Alentejo S.A and Metso is strong. We are excited to continue working with Almina on this project, for which they selected us to supply the grinding island, ultra-fine grinding technology, as well as flotation, filtration, thickening equipment, and slurry pumps. The deliveries will be fast as the plant will be built already within the next 24 months,” explained Saso Kitanoski, President for Metso’s Europe Market Area.

According to Miguel Santos, Senior Sales Manager for Metso Minerals in Iberia & Italy, Almina chose to collaborate with Metso on the engineering for the grinding island as Metso was able to bring extensive expertise and confidence that the project will deliver robust performance, availability, and sustainability results. “Almina trusts Metso as a partner for this project as we can provide them with a comprehensive package of solutions to help them achieve their targets. Several of the solutions to be delivered to Almina feature our Planet Positive technology.”
