Amarillo Gold Corporation has selected Metso Outotec’s modular FIT Station for its Posse Gold greenfield mining project in the state of Goiás in central Brazil. The new game-changing crushing and screening solution was introduced to the market in 2020, and Amarillo Gold will be the first site where it will be installed.
The cost-efficient FIT Station has been designed to bring significant savings of resources and time to mining operations.
The FIT Station for Posse Gold has a design capacity of 540t/h of ROM with an average production of 102.000Oz of gold/year (years 1 to 4). The station consists of crushers, vibrating feeders and screens, as well as conveyors and related structures and other equipment.
Amarillo Gold Corporation is advancing two gold projects in Brazil. The Posse Gold project, which has gold resources of approximately 1.2 million contained ounces, is in the company’s Mara Rosa Property in Goiás state. The project will operate an open pit mine and carbon-in-leach operation with dry stack tailings.
“We are very proud to have the honour to work with Amarillo Gold. They are a frontrunner aiming to select the best technology for their project. Our sustainable crushing stations are a good fit with this objective, as they are designed for Capex reduction and shorter lead times, with ease of installation and maintenance,” says Guillaume Lambert, Vice President, Crushing at Metso Outotec.
