Explore the Antas Plant
Taking advantage of specialist skills in Belo Horizonte and São Paulo, some sections, such as the crushing circuit were designed to be loaded on trailers, and then were trucked to site, where taken off the trailers they were simply bolted into place and integrated into the plant. This ensured perfect design and limited on site installation time, resulting in high-efficiencies and lower costs
Plant continues to beat expectations with throughput capacity 20% above design, copper production 17% ahead of original targets and copper recoveries 2% better than anticipated at +97%
The Metso Mill was acquired unused second hand. This significantly lowered costs whilst at the same time reduced delivery lead time, facilitating the rapid construction of the plant
Concentrate is shipped in containers to Vila do Conde port. Container shipping is frequent, and facilitates smoother cash flows instead of less frequent bulk shipping
Plant comprises some of the best equipment available, for example, Outotec floatation cells, a Metso mill, and Denver cleaner cells
