FLSmidth has been awarded a contract worth approximately $82 million from Allied Nevada Gold Corp. to supply equipment and services to its gold mine located about 200 km northeast of Reno. The contract includes delivery of two SAG mills and three ball mills. The plant capacity will be more than 100,000 metric tons per day (mt/d) of gold and silver bearing ore. The capacity of the plant will make it the largest concentrator in size, in North America, ever put into operation in a single phase. Prior orders from Allied Nevada for FLSmidth equipment include a primary gyratory crusher as well as cone crushers for delivery in 2012.
