Prime Install: Copper mine installs new equipment to enhance process reliability

DCI’s mining industry client requested structural design support for their large scale material handling equipment installation at a Chilean copper mine. The primary crusher and cone crusher systems process around 105,000 metric tonnes per day of primary and secondary copper ore. DCI’s heavy industrial team engineered structural support and coordinated construction drawings for the material handling equipment, which included:

-        SAG Mill Fee Conveyor which was an enclosed, gallery style, conveyor

-        Gravity Take-up (GTU) Tower

-        SAG Mill Recirculation Conveyor which was an enclosed, gallery style, stacker conveyor

-        Drive and GTU tower

-        Drive and take-up building

 

Project Highlight

  • The engineering staff used special steel detailing, based on local Chilean code requirements, to accommodate the sites heavy snow and seismic loading.
