FLSmidth will supply a new gold processing plant to JSC Pavlik in the Magadan region in eastern Russia. The order for the 7-million-metric-ton-per-year plant was valued at around DKK 290 million ($42.9 million). It will operate alongside another processing plant supplied by FLSmidth in 2013.

FLSmidth will supply equipment across the complete flowsheet, including materials handling, flotation, gravity concentrators, screens, gold leaching, dewatering, pumps, cyclones, valves, instruments and reagent systems. The order also includes a complete plant electrical and automation package.

The contract follows the successful partnership with JSC Pavlik for Line 1, for which FLSmidth designed and supplied all the main process equipment.

“We want to thank FLSmidth’s team for the hard, detailed work that was completed throughout the timeline of the order,” said Artyom Bolshakov, vice president of JSC Pavlik. “We are familiar with FLSmidth’s equipment since the start of Pavlik and we trust their quality and transparency.”

FLSmidth was awarded the engineering contract in 2019 and, following this new contract, the equipment supply will begin in Q4 2020. The plant is expected to commence operation in late 2021 or early 2022.
