Netherlands-based mining construction company Bateman Engineering NV won an engineering, procurement and construction management contract for the Foskor Extension 8 de-bottlenecking project in Phalaborwa, South Africa.
The project aims to restore the production throughput capacity of Extension 8 to its design level of 5.2 million tonnes a year by replacing 2 million tonnes a year of crushing and milling capacity. It involves the design, supply, and construction of a 250-ton per hour tertiary crushing, rod milling, ball milling, classification and flotation feed thickener circuit. The project is due for completion by September 2010.
Foskor's Phalaborwa facility focuses on mining and processing phosphate rock and recovering low concentrates of copper minerals.
