MIPAC builds McArthur River Mine Yokogawa DCS interface

Monday, September 23, 2013

Milestone Projects, an EPCM specialising in mineral processing and resource markets, has engaged MIPAC to build a Yokogawa DCS interface for the $360 million expansion of the Glencore-owned McArthur River Mine in the Northern Territory.

The expansion will see the mine become the largest zinc resource in the world.

MIPAC has previously worked with Milestone Projects at the mine's heavy medium plant and will now use the latest Yokogawa VNET/IP system on plant areas such as dewatering, grinding and regrinding, crushing, rougher flotation and the power station.
